I have never been a basketball coach, at 26, but I have played the game growing up all the way through my final year at college. I've enjoyed the game, and have enjoyed it as a spectator. In playing travel basketball growing up, I have had father like figure coaches, who really are not professional coaches, but believe in their kids that they coach. So I ask all of you, what makes a good basketball coach?
I figure that I could jot down alot of questions that get you all thinking. Like, is it his/her personality? Is it the relationship they have with each player? Is it their experience and credentials? On and on.
Here is a quick video that shows how Greg Popovich has managed and lead his team. I think this is a great little video of how a coach should, or should not, handle their players. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3c98DECN6QI .
What are your thoughts? Who would you compare or single out that is a good/bad coach? All opinions are welcomed.
