Our season ended Friday night, and now we are preparing for our awards banquet and off season. Here are a couple of articles I enjoyed last week.
THIBODEAU: “EVERYTHING MATTERS” - Zak Boisvert
March 6, 2017
Linked below is a fantastic 2-part Q&A with Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau. With how many good coaching nuggets Thibs dispenses, the transcript is practically a coaches clinic in its own right. Great stuff on Thibs’ “daily improvement” mantra, working with young players, communicating with your players, how players can develop their leadership skills and where the T-Wolves need to improve defensively. Definitely one of the better articles I’ve linked to lately. The Q&A is broken into two parts with my notes from the two sections appearing in the embedded PDF.
FEBRUARY COACHING NOTEBOOK - Zak Boisvert
March 7, 2017
Embedded below are my notes I took from articles I read and conversations I had with various coaches over the the month of February. Included in here are Peyton Manning’s thoughts on what makes Nick Saban so good, Mark Few on the growth of his Gonzaga team, Jeff Van Gundy on what you should and shouldn’t coach, and Kevin Durant’s admiration for Manu Ginobili.
It’s All About The Cake
A good article about the end of the season.
