I went to a Coaches Clinic at Rutgers today and was about 10 feet away from all these coaches today as they lectured and demonstrated drills all day long. Wasn't sure if people would be interested but thought there might be a few so I'd throw it out there and if people had any questions I'd respond. :)

Sidenote: Erik Spolestra and Hubie Brown were in attendance as well.

Did Larry Brown say anything about AI?

He actually went on for about 15 minutes about Iverson. He talked about how his Sixers teams worked because guys like Ratliff-Snow-Tyrone Hill etc. all didn't mind letting Iverson have the spot light and they were better to have around AI than guys like Glenn Robinson and Tim Thomas (yes these were his examples) who got pissed how he dominated the ball.

He also talked about some game vs. the Pacers where Iverson went about 12-40 but all the other guys were like 5-5 and they still won and Iverson kissed him on the lips. Shiny penny for anyone who can find that box score.

Who was the most interesting coach to listen to? Other than Larry Brown, the person I'd be most interested in hearing from is Hubie Brown. I think Hubie is one of the best commentators around and I just love listening to him talk about the game.

Bob Hurley - Most useful (great drills that my team will use)

Bill Self - Most Offensive Minded (good motion sets but not much else)

John Calipari - Most disappointing (actually had the players running 3 man weave and child drills)

Jeff Van Gundy - Most Defensive Minded (lots of philosophy on how to handle ball screens/pick and roll)

Larry Brown - Most Boring (literally rambled on past his time and the MC had to step in and almost cut him off)

Mike Rice - Most Entertaining (this guy is HIGH energy and was cussing and having a great time)

Spo was simply there to enjoy the clinic. He did not speak.

Spo was there to learn how to coach. I think he realized after this year that it's a lot different from coaching 8th graders.
