You always spend a little more time watching the guys you coached, to see how they're playing. And there's no question that when I check scores, I still go to the Nuggets scorer faster than any other scores. I have a lot of love for the players and a lot of love for the city.
In coaching, you don't ever really have that joyful fun, but there's no question that it's enjoyable.
I want to be the team that creates the action more than be the reactor.
The truth of basketball is done in competition and fundamentals and team, but there's a lot of other junk that goes around the game.
Coaches don't sleep for a reason. They don't sleep because it's a danger zone every night. Very seldom do you ever get two or three days off... The lifestyle of coaching in the NBA is a tremendous challenge that gives you tremendous highs but also tremendous lows.
