Ep. 117 March Madness and the Psychology of LeBron James
In light of the approaching March Madness tournament, our panel of Shrinks center this episode on all things basketball.
Joined by fellow Shrink Tank contributor, Tarik Sloussi, LPC, today’s episode discusses the cultural impact of March Madness as well as the psychology behind the record-breaking athlete, LeBron James. Inspired by Tarik Sloussi’s recent article, today’s episode includes talking points of psychological resilience, traits of narcissism as well as the psychological factors of modern athletes.
“I think that’s one thing about the psychology of LeBron James–he is growth-minded and growth-oriented and he tries to find ways he can continue to progress instead of staying content.”
–Tarik Sloussi, LPC
