Space creates time, but time cannot always create space.
The most important law in all sports, regardless of moment, context, or phase, is the law of space and time.
Often you hear people refer to an athlete who seems to have more time on the ball, or a player who creates time for others. In reality, what is really being referred to here is the creation of space. Time and space are both created using the four macro principles of team sport. The law of space and time states that space can create time. This law is not reversible in sports—time does not necessarily create space.
