Have you ever cried when the competition was so intense? Sometimes the emotions simply get the best of you. And crying as a reaction is certainly OK. In fact if I were a coach I’d want players who cried on an occasional basis. To me it’d mean they care about the game.
And even at the professional level in leagues like the NBA, players get emotional. Whether it’s because they worked so hard to win and finally do win, or it’s because they’ve worked so hard only to lose, even these big guys get tears.
But sometimes it’s just the competition itself that can get a player rattled and cause him to lose his nerve.
Here are 8 videos of NBA players crying.
