Word on the Street

Disconfidence (dis-kahn’-fuh-dens) noun. A lack of trust or faith, either in one’s team or one’s own skills and abilities as a basketball player.

Usage example:The Dallas Mavericks are on an incredible winning streak right now. They are a team completely lacking in disconfidence.

Word history: Coined on February 8, 2006 by LeBron James during a postgame interview after the Cavaliers narrowly defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves. Discussing how the Cavs overcame a 30-22 deficit after the first quarter, James said,

“We didn’t have disconfidence; we knew we could make a run.”

This man has no disconfidence. And what’s up with the lion?!
