    From reading a lot of yours posts, I have really come to the opinion that you seem like a really good guy. I’m not sure how much we would see eye to eye on when it comes to politics and more “serious” things, but I gain a lot of respect for you all the time. Not that you need or want my admiration.
    Anyways I would like to coach for my kids as they get older if they decide they want to go with basketball. My experience at higher levels of sports I played basketball and soccer was almost all bad coaches that obviously didn’t care, it was all about them, parents that paid large sums of money so their kids would get more minutes, I could go on... Anyways I know not every coach or program is ran that way, and If my kids grow into basketball players I’ll do everything I can to keep them from crappy situations.

    Thank you for your kind words. I try my hardest to be a good, honest, hard working, personally responsible, productive citizen. I teach my son the same. I actually think we'd agree on more things than you think.

    :cheers:

    If anyone has ever seen D with his kid ( OFF OF THE COURT), he demands respect. When I have a child, I only hope to be as engaged with them as D is with his son. Constantly educating him, but in a way that makes his son think for himself and try to solve things on his own. AND its obvious his son looks up and respects D for this.

    Mad respect fr you @dviss1

    Is that in Vegas?

    I'm not going there as an official. It's a Team USA camp for coaching. I want to be better coach. I want to coach my son until he's in high school and maybe during if he's good enough to play AAU then.

    I don't trust these muthafuckas.... NONE of them...

    Hey @HCP! Guess where he's going after Tubman?
    (He's just going into 6th now)

    GRANT GENERALS BABY!!!

    Yeah, the players mini camp is happening at the same time. Pretty sure Jay Wright is a coach for the team as well. Maybe you will see Pops around a bunch of players.
