Huggins said to really take a look at what you do....he talked about how the game has changed.....his main points were to cut the floor in half and defend the box, and never allow direct passes....I really liked the way he questioned some things that a lot of people do.
Imagine Yourself at Your Own Funeral
This strategy is a little scary for some people but universally effective at reminding us of what’s most important in our lives.
When we look back on our lives, how many of us are going to be pleased at how uptight we were? Almost universally, when people look back on their lives while on their deathbed, they wish that their priorities had been quite different. With few exceptions, people wish they hadn’t “sweated the small stuff”so much. Instead, they wish they had spent more time with the people and activities they truly loved and less time worrying about aspects of life that, upon deep examination, really don’t matter all that much. Imagining yourself at your own funeral allows you to look back at your life while you still have the chance to make some important changes.
While it can be a little scary or painful, it’s a good idea to consider your own death and, in the process, your life. Doing so will remind you of the kind of person you want to be and the priorities that are most important to you. If you’re at all like me, you’ll probably get a wake up call that be an excellent source of change.

The greatest blunder in coaching is indecisiveness , slowness and hesitation .
Optimism is a very potent medicine and that like any powerful drug , it could become dangerous , ….never banish hope but always manage it
Coaching – As much as we preach simplicity , I sometime feel it is the one thing most frequently violated in the coaching profession
We Like to tell our Team ‘ Check your Ego at the door . You can reclaim it later “
Any expression of defeatism or any failure not to play with confidence You shouldn’t be on the court
Most important element in coaching is your staff I would Rather have no coach than an unloyal assistant coach - Eric Musselman
Work hard/work smart…..not like the bus driver – “making good time, but we’re lost”
“Pass your player into a great position”
“Swish Passes” – pass with the same precision as we shoot
-Defense doesn’t break down on help, it breaks down on rotation
Great shooting teams are great passing teams
