    George, I too have enjoyed watching (and learning) from the Golden State approach the past couple of years. As an educator, and a coach, it reminds me that we have the most success when we can match our strategies with our student’s skills and needs. In basketball, the Warrior’s remind me of Paul Weshead’s Loyola Marymount teams of 1989 and 1990 with Hank Gathers and Bo Kimble. The “Guru of Go” had a group of athletes whose skills and attributes finally matched his run and gun philosophy. Golden State has Curry and Thompson. It makes for exciting viewing. In education, it is a delight to witness a master teacher engaging with students who have a complimentary learning style.
    Great post! I look forward to watching other NBA teams adopt the Warrior’s approach (unsuccessfully…but that’s another topic).

    As educators, there is much we can learn from by looking to great teams and coaches. The perspective of looking at “teacher as coach”, and the many strong comparisons and analogies we can draw from in sports is hugely powerful. This post does a great job of shining a light on all of that.
