Coaches less offense is exactly more offense let your kids play

I am calling on all coaches at every level to run the Fast Break again and teach players to be more offensive orientated. Please teach shooting and drive-n-kick offense which is the hardest thing to guard in Basketball. Red Auerbach and John Mclendon started the running game please get back to style coaches.

Magic Johnson loves seeing the Fast Break back in the NBA

I enjoyed listening to Magic being interviewed during the Lakers and Suns game. He was very complimentary towards Steve Nash and loves how the Suns push the ball up the floor and run.

In light of Virginia Tech are we too politically correct?

Let me preface my latest blog by saying that I am high school security person. I believe that I am on the front lines of domestic terrorism and I am deeply saddened by the Virginia Tech tragedy. With that being said, I believe that the shooter was already identified by the staff and teachers as a potential random actor. I believe that staff was ignored by the administration at the school because they are too worried about being politically correct, and sadly we have a bunch of innocent lives destroyed by this evil person. I feel that we cannot stop these events when they happen, but we had so many warning signs with this misguided student who was bullied for most of his life. We have a responsibility as a community to help be pro-active in these matters and do the right thing which is more important than being politically correct. We have plenty of more these types of individuals throughout the world and we have responsibility to identify potential random actors. Finally, I pray for all the families in this horrible event.

Coaches the art of shooting is just as important as defense

Billy Donovan should get credit for his defense, but his team ability to hit open shots
is attributed to his great individual skill program. His team was real balanced offensively. We as coaches have to stress and teach shooting. There is plenty of good shooting DVD's such as Dave Hopla, Hal Wissel, Andy Enfield, Tom Nordland, Ed Palubinskas, and Global Shot Doctor Duane Lewis. Please teach and work on shooting.

Thank you Dana Altman for 13 great years

Dana Altman is one of the best coaches in the business and rest of the country is about to find out what a steal Arkansas got of a coach. Dana took over a program that was in shambles and made it a NCAA tournament program year in year out. Arkansas will be headed to the final four in the next 3 to 4 years.

The Basketball Hall of Fame ought to be ashamed for not electing Coach Bob Hurley

The people at The Basketball Hall of Fame who are voting for induction are clueless. How Coach Bob Hurley was not elected is a joke. Coach is one of the outstanding teacher's of the game in High School Basketball. Teach me Springfield I want to know why he got passed over? What a shame!!!
