Bob Hill wrote a book on how to coach basketball.
Here is are a few of the comments from the opening pages.
“A coach must be able to respond to his player’s question about strategy for success. A team’s core leaders must support their coach’s philosophy for the coach and the team to be successful.”
"Basketball was invented to be played at a quick pace."
"Anything done at a quick pace is subject to error and anything subject to error is unpredictable. A coach’s job is to eliminate unpredictability without interfering with the player’s innate ability to play."
