The Moral of this Story - May 11, 2013

"Broken cutters, broken saws, broken buckles, broken laws. Broken bodies, broken bones, broken voices on broken phones. Take a deep breath, feel like you're chokin', everything is broken".
Bob Dylan

The above prose speaks to the following NBA clubs: The Cavs, Bobcats, Pistons, 76ers, Bucks, and Nets who have all recently broken off their relationships with their Head Coaches... and in some cases more than once in the past six months. Needless to say coaches do get fired as it goes with the territory and its not unusual. Nevertheless, every other day there's another coach, either in the NBA or NCAA, who bit the dust. There's a firing frenzy afoot. Can you say virulent virus?

This detail from a Philadelphia news article:
"According to team sources, some of the players became frustrated with Doug Collins' old-school ways or, as one Sixer said, his "tendency to be overbearing".
http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/sixers/20130503_76ers_set_sights_on_new_head_coach.html

Now I don't assume to lecture or give advice to anybody, particularly coaching colleagues. Yet sometimes we all struggle to see the simplest of things, maybe misplacing an obvious certainty and subsequently destroying instead of creating. Conversely, a coach may fail due to "over-doing it". It does seem that we live in a world where "overkill" is king.

"Things are never as simple as they seem, even the rising and setting of the sun has its intricacies".
Unknown

The game in itself is simple and most attempts to complicate will usually come crashing down.
So as my American guys like to say:
Here's the deal.
In all sports there is one common denominator. Its called winning. Its the goal. It is what separates. It is what defines. Its whats sought after yet what few achieve.
Assuming that all coaches know their X's and O's then the issue becomes; What separates the winning coach from the others, the successful coach from his opponents?
First and foremost a coach is a leader and a collaborator. Below are some easy to forget and easy to remember reminders that I hope are helpful. If they help just one coach to be better at what he does, then it has been worth the time.

+ To begin every coach must always keep in mind a crucial, and very important fact (and its not related to the chicken or the egg question)... it relates more to humility and not forgetting that, Without Players There Are No Coaches. If and when a coach begins to think that he is more important than, or above his players, he is destined for a setback.
+ A coach must be able to adjust his methods to the talent and particular characteristics of the players that he has at his disposition. He does not imitate others, nor does he try to force the talent at hand to engage in his favorite playing style.
+ A coach is capable of convincing his players that what they are doing is their best chance for success so they are all on the same page. In essence, they buy-in to what they are doing.
+ The successful coach is able to learn from his players both individually and collectively.
** Coaches often talk about how and what they have learned from other coaches. I have mine in B. Knight, Dean Smith and Dan Peterson to name a few. And just as important were: Walter Berry of St. Johns; Andre Turner of Memphis ST.and Carlos Lisbon of Portugal via Mozambique (and too many others to fit here). Just recently the entire Nigerian National Team re-taught me the importance of Patience as a Virtue. My point is to stop, look and listen, be aware every day, every game and every practice of players' ploys such as the use of the butt in the lane, a shot fake or a simple spin move. It may help you become better at your job.
+ "La Mano Sinistra". An (amusing) Italian term which translates to The Left Hand and relates to mastering the ability of confronting situations indirectly. What Americans may call finesse, it refers more to the coaches psychological disposition regarding his interactions with players, while it implies the opposite of tackling any team/ player situation head-on and creating a confrontation. A wise coach learns how to use it and keeps it in mind. An NBA example is Mike D'Antoni of the LA'kers.
+ All coaches must appreciate the profound and pronounced differences between ROOKIES AND VETERANS and in the Coaches case here in Europe the diversity of international customs and cultures.
+ Finally, a smart coach is able to appreciate and react to the differences between pro players and amateur players (or here in Europe to youth programs) as it is fundamental to success. Pro players are their own bosses. Amateurs (NCAA) and European youth program players are not. A coach must adjust his "game" to fit each of their needs.
+ There are many other things but these will suffice for the present. Thanks for reading.

"The moral of this story the moral of this song is simply that one should never be where one does not belong, so if you see your neighbor carrying something, help him with his load and don't go mistaking paradise for that home across the road".
Bob Dylan
