Well, believe it or not, trust has a lot to do with it.
In You Win in the Locker Room First, Jon Gordon tells the story of the 2014 University of Florida basketball team. Without a single player drafted to the NBA, they surprisingly upset powerhouse programs like the University of Kentucky (beat them three times, to be exact) and went to the Final Four.
Their success was not found in their talent but in the trust they had built in one another as a team and their commitment to play as a team.
