They Keep Score For A Reason! Part 2

That day at Siglar Park I learned that there’s another very simple reason why they keep score – to measure results and determine who wins and who loses. Basketball, much like many other areas of life, is extremely result oriented. The scoreboard is brutally honest as there are no points awarded or displayed for either style or effort. Only results are recorded.

You can’t try to work hard. You can’t try not to drink and drive. You can’t try to be honest. You can’t try to rebound or to play good defense. As the famed philosopher Yoda once said, “Do or do not. There is no try."

Results matter and that is why they keep score!
