Rondeau, Art. (2013). An inside look at the mental side of an NBA star returning from serious injury. Retrieved December, 2, 2014, from http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1567193-an-inside-look-at-the-mental-side-of-an-nba-star-returning-from-serious-injury
This article is about a star NBA player struggling coming back from an injury but on the mental side of things instead of the physical side. In the article it talks about how he was injured in the 2012 season and didn’t come back in the 2013 season because of a lack of confidence. Then again in 2014 he has sprained both ankles and only played a few games.
This is a good source because it allows you to get into the mind of a star athlete when going through a serious injury. It is also a real life athlete struggling with this issue, which shows as an example for my views. He has completed his physical issues, now he has to heal mentally before returning to play how he used to.
