Superstars Get Booed

Dealing with Negativity and Criticism in a Very Public World

I’ve seen athletes get booed before. That’s not unusual. What I’ve never seen is an athlete get booed the entire game. From the moment Kawhi Leonard came on the floor for warm ups… he got booed. When they announced him in the starting lineup… he got booed. When he touched the ball for the first time… he got booed. When he stepped up to the free throw line… he got booed. With four minutes left in the game and the Spurs up by 25… they were still booing. It was incessant and the fans were sending a message loud and clear. This is a story of Kawhi Leonard's first game back to San Antonio and how the crowd (the city) responded. And while this is a story about an athlete and a sport, it’s also a story about you and your life’s work. You may never have walked out onto a court where you were booed, but I’ll bet someone has verbally criticized you or left a negative review online for all to see.
