“You can get a lot done in coaching if you don’t let your ego get in the way.” -- George Raveling
Jack Fertig has a great story about foolish ego. I don't think I should quote the whole thing, so go there and read it. Hey, who could possibly want the coach of the defending NBA champs (and a winner of NCAA titles at two different schools) helping to teach his players a few things?
[edit -- OOPS! Brown's UCLA team in 1980 did not win the title. They lost in the NCAA final game.]
