The Disease of Me
I love coaching books. Pat Riley’s The Winner Within was a great read. Riley obviously knows a lot about winning. I think the Disease of Me concept from his book actually applies more to hockey, than to basketball as goal scorers are coveted early and spoiled early. They get constant praise and very little coaching as coaches fear the defection of their precious scorer.
Are you coaching a kid that has The Disease of Me? The only cure is honesty.
