Competing With Himself
And so, he is choosing a path less traveled. In the course of one’s life, there are many apices. On one hand, there is an apex of prime production, the point where you are at your physically most productive. On the other hand, there is an apex of popularity, where you have more goodwill than at any other time of your life. But in the end, the true apex is the peak of self, the point where you have climbed to the top of all you can be or do.

If you had followed Markelle Fultz’s play with the Washington Huskies Men’s Baketball Team, you would be surprised to see a selfless player. Despite his proficiency as a shooter, Fultz averaged nearly six assists per game. Assists count when the pass results in a score.
Score And More
He shot 47.6 percent from the floor, and 41.3 percent from three-point range. He was second on the team at blocking 1.2 shots per game, and second on the team at rebounds with 5.7 rebounds per game.
But you cannot ignore the versatility of this young 6-foot-4 guard. He can run the point, or he can score at will from the two. He is confident enough to hold his own against any competition. He’ll lose some battles, but he will emerge from them with experience and lessons. That simply means he’ll be better in the next meeting.
