Mastery, Discipline, Trust, and Work Ethic
The ultimate challenge in coaching basketball successfully is to create a synergy within the team in order to train the five individuals on the court to always anticipate, react and execute as a unit. This is only possible with experienced leadership that promotes a stern, passionate, “team first” attitude.
Do the right thing, at the right time, every time. Strive to be better than yesterday on and off the court. This will only serve to benefit and strengthen the player and the team as a whole. To build this mind-set of improvement, players and coaches must show respect for each other and develop faith in one another. Make it a personal and professional goal for everyone on the team to take pride in their commitment to themselves and each other.
