Ted’s  Turmoil   Injury  is  a  necessary  risk  inherent  in  training  and  conditioning  in  sport.  Part  of  becoming  a   champion  athlete  is  the  attitude  one  takes  towards  psychological  training  during  practice,   play  and  especially  during  injury.  Responding  to  the  motivation  of  training  room  personnel   and  inspiring  them,  as  well  as  one’s  ownself  is  necessary.  But  it  is  also  important  to  develop   the  toughness  to  play  throughpain  and  to  know  when  to  give  into  pain  and  get  rest  and   receive  treatment.     Thomas  Johnston  1     Ted  Jackson  is  the  only  senior  who  plays  basketball  for  Major  University,  a   predominantly  white  school.  He  is  a  lean  six  foot  tall  African  American,  Ted  was  a  high   school  All-­‐American  from  Philadelphia’s  inner  city,  where  he  was  the  star  of  his  team,   averaging  over  30pts  and  almost  seven  assists  per  game  during  his  high  school  career.     Ted’s  first  two  years  in  college  were  very  frustrating.  he  did  not  play  much  as  a   freshman  or  sophomore,  averaging  under  five  minutes  per  game.  However,  this  was  not   totally  unexpected,  as  Major  University  had  a  reputation  for  point  guards  who  went  on   to  excel  in  the  professional  leagues.  It  had  always  been  Ted’s  dream  to  play  for  Major   University  and  then  play  professional  basketball.  His  parents  had  both  attended  Major   University  and  had  met  there  as  incoming  freshmen.  They  were  delighted  when  ted   chose  Major.   As  a  junior,  Ted  became  the  starting  point  guard.  For  the  first  ten  games,  he  averaged  14   points  and  6.5  assists  per  game.  He  was  the  consummate  point  guard,  directing  traffic   and,  in  his  coaches  words,  “coaching  the  team  on  the  court.”  Ted’s  accomplishments  did   not  go  unnoticed  by  the  media  either.  One  article  in  the  local  paper  said,  “Jackson  is  a   sure  bet  to  make  the  pros.  He  is  just  another  in  a  long  line  of  point  guards  from  Major   University  to  display  such  great  leadership  qualities.”    Three  days  after  this  article   appeared,  ted  suffered  a  season  ending  injury.  When  he  drove  the  lane,  he  was  undercut   by  his  defender  and  landed  on  his  side.  Ted’s  first  thought  was  that  his  basketball  career   was  over.    Although  he  could  leave  the  court  under  his  own  power,  Ted  knew  his  knee   and  back  was  severely  injured.  The  result  of  the  fall  was  a  herniated  disk  and  stretched   ligaments  in  his  right  knee.     After  the  game,  Ted  called  his  parents  and  told  them  what  had  happened.  He  told  them   that  he  was  going  to  see  the  doctor  the  next  day.  He  also  told  them  that  the  trainer   thought  he  had  probably  just  bruised  his  back,  but  that  he  might  have  a  serious  knee   injury.  Ted  was  scared,  and  it  must  have  showed  because  his  mother  started  crying  on   the  phone.  His  father  told  him  that  he  would  have  to  make  his  body  stronger  and  that   this  was  going  to  be  the  biggest  challenge  of  his  athletic  career.     When  ted  went  to  the  doctors,  he  was  advised  that  he  had  several  choices.  They  could   operate  on  both  his  back  and  knee.  He  could  have  one  or  the  other  operated  on,  or  he   could  go  through  an  extensive  rehabilitation  program.  The  one  thing  the  doctors  were   positive  about  was  that  Ted’s  season  was  over.    This  was  extremely  disappointing  for   Ted.  He  had  never  suffered  an  injury  in  his  life  except  for  a  couple  of  minor  sprained   ankles,  Those  injuries  had  never  stopped  him  from  playing  in  a  game,  much  less  caused   him  to  miss  a  season.     After  his  appointment  with  the  doctors,  Ted  talked  to  the  coach,  who  told  him  that  he   would  not  lose  his  starting  position  as  point  guard  and  that  he  was  counting  on  Ted  to   the  lead  the  team  on  and  off  the  court  in  his  senior  season.  However,  Coach  also  told   him  that  his  starting  position  depended  on  how  intensely  he  rehabilitated  his  injuries,   The  coach  planned  to  check  with  the  training  staff  to  see  how  Ted  was  responding  to   treatment.  This  did  not  worry  Ted  because  he  was  determined  to  recover  from  his   injuries  and  be  in  the  best  possible  shape.     During  their  meeting,  ted  felt  the  coach  really  cared  about  him,  but  after  the  meeting  he   realized  that  Coach  never  asked  him  how  he  was  doing.  He  seemed  more  concerned  that   ted  was  going  to  rehabilitate  his  injuries  so  he  would  be  ready  to  play  next  season.     To  rehabilitate  his  back,  Ted  was  advised  that  he  would  have  to  go  to  therapy  two  hours   a  day,  four  days  per  week.  Ted’s  initial  reaction  was  that  this  was  going  to  be  the  biggest   challenge  of  his  life.  However,  he  knew  that  once  the  rehab  was  over  he  would  be  very   proud  of  himself.  He  also  knew  that  this  was  his  only  chance  of  becoming  the  starting   point  guard  and  being  a  professional  basketball  player.  Ted  believed  that  his  injury   might  have  been  a  blessing  in  disguise  because  he  felt  his  overall  strength  would   increase  from  his  rehab  program.    Coach  also  told  him  that  his  injury  might  help  him   become  a  smarter  basketball  player  because  he  would  have  the  opportunity  to  watch   games  from  a  different  perspective.     When  pickup  games  started  this  fall,  ted  felt  that  his  was  ready  to  play.  Although  he  is   still  a  little  rusty,  his  knee  feels  stronger  than  ever.  Ted  believes  that  even  though  he   missed  most  of  the  previous  season,  he  is  seeing  the  court  better  than  before.  The  only   aspect  of  his  game  that  he  feels  is  missing  is  his  ability  to  drive  to  the  basket  and  then   either  take  the  shot  or  dish  off.  Logically  he  knows  that  his  knee  can  take  the   punishment,  but  he  has  not  been  able  to  get  up  the  nerve  to  drive  with  the  same   reckless  abandon  that  was  successful  for  him  in  the  first  ten  games  of  his  junior  season.     The  failure  to  drive  aggressively  is  starting  to  become  a  problem  for  Ted  because  he  has   noticed  that  this  is  the  major  strength  of  the  player  who  replaced  him  last  year.  In   addition,  there  is  a  first  year  player  who  can  also  drive  to  the  basket  quite  effectively.   Although  Coach  guaranteed  him  with  his  old  starting  position,  ted  is  beginning  to  doubt   that  he  can  do  the  job.    He  also  wonders  if  he  can  still  trust  the  coach.  He  remembers   what  Coach  told  him,  but  he  can  remember  several  times  in  the  past  Coach  said  one   thing  and  did  another.  Ted  comes  to  you.  How  do  you  help  him?   ...

The case presents Ted Jackson, a basketball player at Major University. The study
chronologically unfolds the events that took place to the point of Ted not trusting his coach
anymore. The study tells us more about Ted, his love for basketball and becoming a champion.
Nevertheless, this case study reveals the extent to which internal injuries can cause loss of a
player aggressiveness in the most crucial position such as driving to score on the basket in the
case of Ted. Being in Ted’...
