    Interesting take.

    Relationships count. Accomplishing the goals as a team. That’s what matters. The yearly grind becomes more rewarding....

    What can we take from that for our own daily lives?

    I feel like this explains his lack of enthusiasm for recruiting a little bit and why he was drawn to the NBA. One could argue recruiting is a tool to cultivate new relationships, but when in depression you don't see it that way on top of the fact that I'm sure he has more relationships already than most of us will have in a life time which must be hard to upkeep. Along with the NBA having more of a family feel among all players I think the change of scenery was good for him, and I hope to see him succeed in OKC.

    My dream is that one day soon Coach Mikey will call Coach Donovan for advice on how to handle winning a National Championship

    I like your take.
    Bottom line, it is always more about the journey than the destination; seeing beyond yourself, learning and appreciating and expressing gratitude to others. That is a part of my daily meditations.

    I can relate, Coach.

    I have accomplished sooo much in my life......not that I'm depressed about it.......but I can relate that after a while you ask yourself: "Is this what it's all about?"

    I can't believe that such a great song was written by somebody so young.

    I've heard many coaches and athletes say the pain of losing far exceeds the joy of winning. Makes sense.

    Not always.

    All of my youthful romantic breakups hurt, but the joy that I feel for being married for going on 37 years makes up for all of that and way more.
