"The key to coaching is not what you do, but the way you do it. The intangibles, the motivational parts of the game are the most important facets of it."

Comments: As a basketball coach, I believe inspiring and motivating my players is one of the greatest strengths I have to help ensure their success.

Coaches need to be motivated by what they are doing, by how they are influencing their players and helping them learn the game of basketball. At the same time, players need to be motivated and need to have the desire to become a better player.

This basketball coaching quote by Rick Pitino helps remind me that the way I coach, how I inspire my players, is just as important as what I coach.
