Who is your favorite NBA coach and why? Gregg Popovich
Coach Popovich has proven that no matter what his teams consist of he always brings out the best in each of them. Any team he coaches will always be a contender. He is an example of fairness and experience. He doesn’t hold any bias with his players. He is respected throughout the league and continues to be an outstanding example to any coach looking to learn more about this wonderful game of basketball.
 
How do you think the Summer League Jr. NBA Basketball League helps players?
I feel that this league emphasizes the importance of what this game is all about. I feel that it gives middle school athletes a foundation to prepare for High School. The instruction and quality of coaches and administration sets this league apart from any other.
