Listen on iTunes | Overcast | Spotify | YouTube

In this episode, JP and Nate discuss two contrasting perspectives held by sports enthusiasts. On one side, there are those who believe that there is no such thing as failure in sports, but rather continuous progress and valuable lessons to be learned. This viewpoint was exemplified by Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks, who recently expressed this sentiment after his team's unexpected first-round loss in the NBA playoffs. On the other side, there are individuals who emphasize that the scoreboard is the ultimate determinant of success. The hosts explore the question of whether coaches, players, and organizations can genuinely prioritize both winning and purpose in their approach.

  • It’s more than a game, but not a true measure of worth
  • “There is no failure in sports” (Giannis Antetokounmpo)
  • Differences in approach: John Wooden vs Dave Brandt
