Book Review: Let Me Tell You A Story
This is a review from my Favorite Books list; the link from which will be also on the Books Page.
“There are some college coaches, many in fact, who cannot adapt to the pro game. Their whole thing is their system. They bring in players and say, ‘You will play this way,’ even if their skills aren’t right for playing that way. One thing I always noticed about [Coach K] was that he changed the way he ran his offense every year based on the players he had. That’s the kind of flexibility you need n the pros.”
I didn’t think I would ever pick this book up off my shelf, but when I found myself with no apparent options more appealing, I decided to give the first chapter a shot at pulling me in. I came to find that author John Feinstein is a great writer who was able to make the story of an old basketball coach interesting to me. It didn’t hurt that Red Auerbach had a helluvalotta opinions on all topics basketball.
