Favorite Coaching Quote:

Now this is the Law of the Jungle -
As old and as true as the sky;
And the wolf that shall keep it may prosper
But the wolf that shall break it must die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree trunk,
The law runneth forth and back -
For the strength of the Pack in the Wolf,
And the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.

~ Rudyard Kipling / Phil Jackson - Sacred Hoops
