Patrick Beverly on Finding Your Niche
The NBA is home to the 450 best basketball players in the world. It’s not enough to have talent or a strong work ethic, you need the genetics too. Simply put, the NBA is notoriously competitive.
Despite being drafted late in the second round and spending his early career playing basketball overseas, the Los Angeles Lakers guard Patrick Beverly found his role in the NBA. He’s known as a tenacious defender and competitor. He’s a player that you’d hate to play against but you’d love to have him on your team.
In this clip, Beverly talks about finding your niche. In basketball, there’s only so many shots to go around. Not everyone has the green light to take a high volume of shots like LeBron James or Steph Curry. Beverly says you got to find your niche. Maybe that niche is catch and shoot threes, rebounds, or steals. Whatever it is, find it and build on it.
Whether it be the NBA, finding your audience, or searching for a job, find your niche and build on it.
