I'm a running coach and I am going to continue to run, but I would hope that we are better defensively.
If we're gonna win, we have to play up to and beyond our potential.
I feel sad about it,
There are so many great things about Seattle, but we love our sports here and that's pretty clear. And we've finally got a football team.
Really, throughout my career, what I've done is taken teams with bad records and with every situation I've made them better.
It's been difficult to get any continuity offensively. Our defense is definitely better. You can throw a bunch of new guys together and have a better chance to play defense collectively, maybe because of timing or whatever. But we don't know who we are offensively yet.
I've always been able to go to him,
We've got several kids in that 5-6 to 5-9 range. We're definitely a lot smaller than we have been in the past.
He will miss training camp and the first month of next season. This is very important to them.
You have a lot of ups and downs in coaching, especially, but I can't remember any bad times at this point. I mean, they're all good. A lot of tears when you lose, a lot of down times, but I can't remember any of them. They're all positive now. Even the bad times were good.
[Still, Saturday's announcement was something of a surprise only because Nelson had said he was going to stay through next year.] I'm in my last years as a coach, ... I'm going to retire. I have this one and one more [year on my contract]. I expect to coach til the end. I want Avery to get some expe
I spent 50 years in the NBA. Can you imagine doing something that you love the most in the entire world and doing it for your entire life and, besides that, getting a pile of money for it? It's unbelievable. I'm the luckiest guy in the world. And I know it.
I'm a lot of things, but none of them are great.
He committed to a long-term deal so we were able to build around him and develop what we have today.
I've still got a year left on my contract, and I intend to be back next year to coach.
When he sits down, his ears pop
I think people expected too much from him. He gave what he could give, and there was a limit to that.
I can't remember any regrets, to be honest with you.
Where ever the Mavericks are today, we owe it to Michael Finley. He was the one guy who stayed when we were a terrible team. He stayed and fought the fight.
I never coached anyone going to Vanderbilt. We're a Blue Ribbon-awarded high school, recognized by the president. It's a testament to our school, and Massey helped lead the way.
The only problem for Michael Finley as a player is that he cares too much. He takes losses too hard.
We would play a team that's one hour away 300 miles away from home. That would be fun.
The fans aren't here, ... There's a good chance your parents aren't here because they are taking care of what they need to do. That's all the more reason to go and play like you need to.
The airport isn't in the way. It is an asset. Just consider: Could things go somewhere else.
It's just going to take a while. It doesn't matter how good he is.
When you have bad teams, you've got to be creative to win games you're not supposed to win.
If we're gonna win, we have to play up to and beyond our potential. We're capable of doing that.
I love Maui.
Scotty, I couldn't take a dime from you. He said he was the luckiest man in the world. I'm in a position to help people. You don't know how gratifying it is to see somebody's dreams come true. I know a lot of people and I can help Tyler and I don't want a dime. He said someday I want him to give bac
We wanted to say Michael was a superstar, but he really wasn't,
