Interesting interview with Kobe. But I’m not totally convinced about some of Kobe’s comments but interesting nevertheless.
Here is a roundtable discussion of three of the top coaches in basketball. Let it be college, NBA, or overseas, these three guys are up there with anyone. Jim Boeheim of Syracuse and Team USA, Tom Izzo of Michigan State (and almost the Caveliers) and Bill Self of Kansas sat down to discuss hoops.
Normally there is never a win that feels as good as the losses feel bad. Except that game. A National Championship makes you forget about all of those tough losses.
As the Annual Jimmy V Classic gets underway tonight at the Madison Square Garden it’s only appropriate to take a llok back and remember one of the great coaches in college basketball history and a speech that continues to inspire…
This speech is from the 1993 ESPY awards, 8 weeks before Valvano passed away.
Let’s also look back a clip of NC State’s improbable National Championship in 1983, remember this wasn’t against any team, this was against the Phi-Slamma-Jamma University of Houston led by Hakeem Olojuwan and Clyde Drexler, but the “Cardiac Kids” led by Jimmy V were a team of destiny.
