As we enter into the full swing of college basketball season, let us take a moment to remember some of the incredible wisdom that has been imparted upon us by legendary coaches of college basketball.
Laugh, cry and think every day
In one of the most profound moments in the history of the ESPY awards, Jimmy Valvano reminds us that to live to the fullest, we must laugh, cry and think deeply every single day.
But don’t trip too much…
While it’s okay to share your feelings, Duke’s Coach K’s handling of Grayson Allen latest tripping incident reminds us that tripping people during a basketball game is not so chill.
This epic postgame rant from Southern Illinois’ Coach Barry Hinson helps us learn to stay coachable, listen to others, avoid hidden snipers while on the court and maybe use at least one shot fake.
An inside look at Oregon Basketball’s Dana Altman shows that to lead your team, and to get the best out of those around you, enthusiasm has to come from the top.
Share your feelings
Don’t be afraid to let others know how you feel. Whether you’re angry enough to throw a chair or happy enough to hug your friend, former Indiana Coach Knight teaches us in this clip that it’s best to just let everyone know how you’re feeling. Because even if you get tossed from the game, you still got to throw the chair.
