Additionally, Coach Scott talks about his role as a leader during his playing and coaching career in professional basketball.

His professional playing career spanned 11 years with the Pistons, Baltimore Bullets, and Virginia Squires.

My guest on this episode equates conversation to being on a playground, where there is humor, joy, curiosity, exploration, and yes, some arguments and hurt feelings. And feeling bold enough to invite others onto our own personal playgrounds requires us to first uncover some things about ourselves and how we wish to interact with those around us. You're about to hear my conversation with Dr. Corey Yeager, a licensed marriage and family therapist as well as the psychotherapist for the National Basketball Association's Detroit Pistons. Doc recently released a new book called “How Am I Doing? 40 conversations to have with yourself” As you'll hear Doc describe in this conversation, before we can begin to understand others and communicate effectively with others around us — the other people on the playground — we have to first have a level of awareness about ourselves that unfortunately, very few of us pour much effort into achieving. And that's why Doc wrote his book. To give you a starting point to learn how to ask yourself the questions that will inform your ability to interact appropriately with those around you.

The Katherine Massey Book Club @ The C.O.W.S. hosts the 4th study session on the late Bill Russell's 1979 publication, Second Wind: The Memoirs of an Opinionated Man. Russell passed away on July 31st of this year at the age of 88. The NBA titan won eleven championships and an Olympic gold medal, and was elected to the basketball Hall of Fame. Russell is second only to his contemporary Wilt Chamberlain in all time NBA rebounds. The Louisiana native is also credited with being the first black head coach in the National Basketball Association. Last week, Russell detailed his high school travels up and down the west coast and into Canada playing basketball. Their racially mixed team bucked the basketball authority of the time by shooting jump shots and jumping on defense to black opponents' shots. Defense in general and shot-blocking specifically was not valued, taught, or even recorded at the time. The young prodigy said White coaches branded their style of play "n!@@#rball" and frequently accused he and his teammates of cheating. Importantly, Russell invested a great care detailing how he would use his brain computer to visualize basketball plays. Imaging himself dominating on the hardwood became a key cerebral element of Russell's basketball supremacy. #BlackSelfRespect #HarlemGlobetrotters #TheCOWS13 INVEST in The COWS – http://paypal.me/TheCOWS Cash App: https://cash.app/$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 720.716.7300 CODE 564943#

It's 1985. Nike is hoping to finally get a foot into the world of basketball. They're gearing up for a new release of basketball boots that 21-year-old rookie Michael Jordan wears during a pre-season match for the Chicago Bulls. The National Basketball Association then tries to ban the trainers on the basis that they break the league's rule stipulating that players must wear shoes that are either 51% black or 51% white. In the tenth episode of Torn, Gus Casely-Hayford tells the story of how Nike's response kickstarts a revolution in trainers that turns a simple sports shoe into one of the most covetable fashion items of all time. Jordan saw his sponsorship deal with Nike morph into a multi-billion-dollar business making him the richest athlete of all time. Casely-Hayford finds that from the early noughties, the lines between fashion and sportswear blurred further. Enter some of the world's most renowned fashion designers. Designer Air Jordans regularly adorn the feet of celebrities from rappers Drake and A$AP Rocky, to the supermodel Naomi Campbell and tennis star Roger Federer. But Air Jordans have a dark side that have spurred riots, robberies, and even murders committed by those desperate to get their feet in a pair.

It was like rolling a rock up a hill” (13:15). “What made my transition to the NBA such a great match for me was because I was a ‘basketball person'” (18:35). “I worked very hard with my personal relationships in the league” (18:10). “In any line of work, [the quality of your personal relationships] makes or breaks you” (18:15). “Preparation and attention to details were hallmarks [for working with David Stern]” (21:10). “David Stern had this adage that ‘micromanagement is underrated'” (21:15). “I took the best of both of them” (23:30). “I try to be practical but visionary” (23:40). “I'm a much more mature, developed leader than I was when I took the job at the NBA” (24:40). “I did all these other things that, in their way, fortified my leadership skills” (26:20). “My pregnancy and maternity in the early years was one of the most challenging periods of my life” (27:40). “When I got pregnant, I was a unicorn in the office… I was working for people whose wives didn't work… They didn't expect me to come back” (28:00). “When I came back from maternity leave, I really had something to prove at the league” (28:30). “It takes a village if you want to be a working parent” (29:10). “It was part-time, but I made it part-time-plus. I threw myself into USA Basketball” (33:35). “I could have an interlude in my life where I could be more present with my daughters” (34:45). “My career has been totally unplanned… I don't know what my next chapter is” (44:00). “I'm serious, I'm competitive, I want to do well… but at the same time I'm a compassionate person, I care deeply about the relationships that I have with the many people in my life” (49:30). “If you're going to be successful in your field and fulfill the demands that are made on you as a leader, you have to have that expectation that you're going to make sacrifices” (51:20). “I think it's important to clear your head regularly. There's so much going on and you can't be on all the time” (52:50). “Sports is one of the great ways of bringing people together in our world… The power of sports is very real” (56:30).

The elegance of the city's elite point guards, molded by the packed streetball courts, unwritten rules of bruising pickup games, and the perseverance required to survive everyday life, has come to define an era of basketball and American culture.

The New York City point gods' lasting impact on the game of basketball can be seen around the world, in virtually every league.The film features a who's who of point guard deities: Rafer Alston, Kenny Anderson, Mark Jackson, Stephon Marbury, God Shammgod, Kenny Smith, Rod Strickland and Dwayne "Pearl" Washington. They brought theatrics, dizzying ball control, stylish misdirection, and a shake-and-bake game from the asphalt to the city's hallowed high school gyms and to the NBA, orchestrating successful offenses at every level.

In 2000, Jeff Siegel, and his seven-year-old son, embarked on a spur-of-the-moment vacation that took them across the southwestern tier of National Basketball Association arenas. Shortly thereafter, they began formulating a plan: they would visit every NBA arena and Major League Baseball park across the US. What started as a series of hilarious road games and unexpected detours quickly took on a serious subtext. Jeff and his son grew closer than ever. Jeff says it all goes back to his secret weapon as a Dad, “the open road.” Since 2011, Jeff has been sharing with everyone how they, too, can use this simple idea to create a stronger relationship with their son or daughter. Jeff Siegel is teaching today's road warriors how to transform a common road trip into a creative and spontaneous journey that builds lasting bonds with their kids. In his book, RelationTrips, Jeff provides families with a practical roadmap for building enduring connections and creating trips filled with adventure, imagination, discovery and fun. With energy and enthusiasm, he recounts his experiences traveling with his son, sharing the tips and helpful secrets he's learned over the years ... to help other families design, plan and implement successful RelationTrips around their own unique hobbies and interests.
