I loved Alex B's article "Swish." It was motivating how it showed that you can do anything when you put your mind to it. It also showed that if you put hard work into something it will pay off in the long run. Just like in the article, when Alex says, "this is what all the practice has been for, all the time was spent in the gym while others were resting." It paid off for Alex when he made that three-pointer and it will pay off for you if you practice hard enough for something. I guess practice really does make perfect.
