  • A question for Americans.

    Im interested in managers or man management as an art including sport. I was recomended a book off the back of a radio programme a while ago. It was by an American coach who is considered a bit of a legend on this topic and his thoughts are sort by people all over in respect to man management. Now Im pretty sure it was a basketball coach and I think he managed the lakers. Any ideas guys.

          Reilly or Jackson? I really doubt that. It would almost have to be John Wooden.

            Just to say he has written an extremely well regarded book on man management and motivation. It is is highly regarded by top coaches everywhere. Does that narrow it down a bit?

              Shame on you doubting me Dennis ... Reilly has written motivational books, and Jackson is the Zen-Master of course. Could be Wooten too though.
              I'm sticking with Reilly from what was asked.

                I wish Bobby Knight would write a management text book...

                  Heh, yeah! How to manage to grab and hit players, and how to curse, and how to be rude, oh, and lets not forget how to train for the annual D1 NCAA Coaches chair tossing contest!

                    Reilly and Jackson coach in the pros. In the NBA the players run the teamsby and large, and Reilly doesn't have near Jackson's track record for championships if by some god-forsaken chance it turns out to be an NBA coach.

                    Best regards,
                    Dennis

                      Just so everyone is aware it's Pat Riley not Reilly.

                        Rudy Tomjanovich had a short stint as coach of the Lakers and a longer one as coach of the Rockets. He also wrote a book and nearly had his career ended while on court.

                            Pat Reilly seems to be cosensus but this Jackson being "a zen master" Why is he zen? That sounds interesting. It could be him. Maybe I'll have to buy both books.

                              I think it might be a book called sacred hoops by phil jackson. Sound right?
