When most people talk about 'talent' they are simply talking about athleticism...meaning speed, quickness, jumping, size, strength, etc. This isn't a track meet -- other things matter. Skill level is a talent. Intelligence is a talent. Decision making is a talent. Toughness, both mental and physical, is a talent. Energy and intensity are talents. Forget 'talent' and focus on production and consistency.
