A few gems from Kevin Eastman of the Boston Celtics:
"Worry about becoming more vs. earning more."
“Once someone can do what you do and one more thing, you are replaceable”
Things to tell your post players:
“Stay clear between the ears.”
“You don‟t have to score to play.”
“If you want to find a niche, offensive rebound.”
“Need niche guys on your team, find a niche ENERGY guy.”
"When you work, make sure you and the players work with their heads.‟
“Maybe bad 1st shots, but rarely bad second shots.”
"Filling the lane and running rim to rim requires no skill but commitment and will."
“If you rebound too much you won‟t come out!”
ROLE: “May not be the one you want, but what we need to win a championship.”
“The more you go after the ball, the more you get!”
