Either option is a valid reason, but I hope it is number one! (Hi, mom!)

But, the most important thing is it’s not about me! The entire point of starting Coaching Basketball Wisely was to share information from the best coaches at every level of basketball from around the world- not because I thought I had all the answers because I don’t!
