Genre: Business & Economics

The Duke University men's basketball team has served as the gold standard in college athletics for well over two decades - and that's all because of the extraordinary impact of Mike Krzyzewski, the highly-respected coach of the Duke squad. Coach K's reputation as a teacher of young men has transcended his extraordinary success as a coach. The Duke team is always ranked at the top of the college game, year in and year out, but what's truly remarkable about Coach K are his players and the legacy they leave behind: Grant Hill, Shane Battier, Elton Brand, Bobby Hurley, and on and on -- these are not just great basketball players, but individuals who have become true leaders in American society, all thanks in large part to Coach K's leadership. So how does Coach K do it? In this new book, he reveals his tips, advice, and time-tested guidance on how he coaches and educates his players about life beyond the basketball court.

Basketball and Philosophy

Author: Jerry Walls
Publisher: University Press of Kentucky
ISBN: 9780813172217
Release Date: 2007-03-09
Genre: Philosophy

What can the film Hoosiers teach us about the meaning of life? How can ancient Eastern wisdom traditions, such as Taoism and Zen Buddhism, improve our jump-shots? What can the “Zen Master” (Phil Jackson) and the “Big Aristotle” (Shaquille O’Neal) teach us about sustained excellence and success? Is women’s basketball “better” basketball? How, ethically, should one deal with a strategic cheater in pickup basketball? With NBA and NCAA team rosters constantly changing, what does it mean to play for the “same team”? What can coaching legends Dean Smith, Rick Pitino, Pat Summitt, and Mike Krzyzewski teach us about character, achievement, and competition? What makes basketball such a beautiful game to watch and play? Basketball is now the most popular team sport in the United States; each year, more than 50 million Americans attend college and pro basketball games. When Dr. James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, first nailed two peach baskets at the opposite ends of a Springfield, Massachusetts, gym in 1891, he had little idea of how thoroughly the game would shape American—and international—culture. Hoops superstars such as Michael Jordan, LeBron James, and Yao Ming are now instantly recognized celebrities all across the planet. So what can a group of philosophers add to the understanding of basketball? It is a relatively simple game, but as Kant and Dennis Rodman liked to say, appearances can be deceiving. Coach Phil Jackson actively uses philosophy to improve player performance and to motivate and inspire his team and his fellow coaches, both on and off the court. Jackson has integrated philosophy into his coaching and his personal life so thoroughly that it is often difficult to distinguish his role as a basketball coach from his role as a philosophical guide and mentor to his players. In Basketball and Philosophy, a Dream Team of twenty-six basketball fans, most of whom also happen to be philosophers, proves that basketball is the thinking person’s sport. They look at what happens when the Tao meets the hardwood as they explore the teamwork, patience, selflessness, and balanced and harmonious action that make up the art of playing basketball.

In addition, this book includes team-building exercises and team behavior and value goals, stressing the importance that coaches not only create a successful team but also develop quality people who will excel outside the athletic arena. The many practical tips and keys to coaching success provided in this book were built from Jim Hinkson’s years as a professional athlete and fine-tuned from his decades of coaching experience. A clear and comprehensive resource, The Art of Motivation for Team Sports will be invaluable to coaches at the youth, high school, and college levels.

»Dieses Buch bietet eine andere, ernsthaftere Alternative zum materiellen Erfolg an. Das heißt, es ist eigentlich weniger eine Alternative als viel-mehr eine Ausweitung der Bedeutung von ›Erfolg‹ auf etwas Größeres als das bloße Bemühen, eine gute Stellung zu finden und sich nichts zuschulden kommen zu lassen. Und auch etwas Größeres als bloße Freiheit. Es setzt ein positives Ziel, auf das man hinarbeiten kann, das einen aber nicht einengt. Das, so scheint mir, ist der Hauptgrund für den Erfolg des Buches. Es traf sich, daß die ganze Kultur genau nach dem auf der Suche war, was dieses Buch anzubieten hat.« Robert M. Pirsig
