Islam's team has gone to shit since losing this theological point guard
Take heed young Balbay: the 13th century Sufi mystic and Seljuk, Turkey native Rumi had this to say about point guard play:
If thou wilt be observant and vigilant, thou wilt see at every moment the response to thy action. Be observant if thou wouldst have a pure heart, for something is born to thee in consequence of every action.
Rumi is talking about intelligently collapsing a defense with penetration off of the screen-n-roll game.
And how about this for a team caught in a slump?
Make yourself free from self at one stroke!
Like a sword be without trace of soft iron;
Like a steel mirror, scour off all rust with contrition.
Message: Self-pity is quicksand. Get out of your own head.
