Cavs & Warriors: Beyond the Talent

  • While the NBA attempts to maximize revenue by waiting over a week for the Finals to begin, we have heard quite a bit about the “talent” that will be on display.  Is LeBron better than Jordan?  Are the Warriors better because of Durant?  All we hear about is the talent.

When I’m able to get caught up with the NBA, I’m usually checking in on the progress of our young Bucks’ team in Milwaukee and my two favorite teams to learn from, the Golden State Warriors and the San Antonio Spurs, but when I can, I also want to follow the progress of two young coaches who made the jump from college basketball, Brad Stevens with Boston and Billy Donovan with Oklahoma City.  Both of them are not just so technically sound in their coaching, but both are master organizers who can teach all of us about leading any type of organization!

So, for our Throwback article for today, let’s focus on Brad Stevens.   Please check out the 3PW article from 2014 when Stevens first took on the Celtic job:

Even though we have already had our first significant snow in Wisconsin and even though the historic farming town turned suburb in which we live is already decked out with holiday lights, it’s Thanksgiving week and my goal this week is to buck the trend these days to just blow throw it.  This is an important week, so please look back with me to the story of Zach Hodskins and to the wise words of John Wooden, Jon Gordon, George Washington, and the Apostle Paul in:
