At the end of the season, remember to ask the coach what you need to work on during the off-season to contribute to the team the following year. Play to your strengths. Not everybody can be the scorer, so do what you're good at. If you try to do things that you are not good at it, you'll find yourself on the bench. If you're great at rebounding and playing defense, do those things when you're on the court.

Do what you can do, not what you can't do. Strengthen your strengths and work on your weaknesses in practice. Players have made millions of dollars playing according to this philosophy. Can you say Ben Wallace or Kyle Korver?

Picture by SD Dirk Always hustle and work hard. Besides helping you improve, a coach will notice this and pick you above somebody else who may not work as hard. Don't be afraid to get your butt on the ground and dive after some loose balls.

When you take a charge, it provides a defensive stop, gets your team the ball, and puts an additional foul on the opposing team. Not to mention, it can affect the other team psychologically because they will be hesitant to drive the ball in fear of picking up another foul. If you can shut down opposing players, it doesn't matter if you can shoot or dribble.

A coach will often find a reason to get you on the court. Nothing will get you to the bench quicker than not boxing out. Coaches understand the importance of rebounding. But Stotts insisted the moment and the venue didn't make him especially nervous.

You know yourself well. From that standpoint, I think it's similar to what a lot of people go through in their lives. Yet rarely do most of us interview for positions that are so public, pay so much yet are so fraught with peril. Coaches are hired to be fired. They know that as they are going through the process. But they want the gigs, anyway. It is the dream of almost everyone who becomes an NBA assistant -- the chance to move over those precious 12 inches and get the chance to run your own shop.

It does not hurt that coach salaries have once again begun to rise, as they did in the late s. It was a subject of great angst for former commissioner David Stern, who was known to strenuously rail against teams that spent big on coaches, yet complain that their teams were losing money. Since the start of this season, more than a third of the league's coaches have been replaced or are being replaced -- 12 out of In less than seven months.

Want to be an NBA coach? Path is hardly for the timid

Only one of those was the coach's idea -- Scott Skiles' sudden resignation in Orlando earlier this month. And no team interviews just one candidate -- though many teams only were serious about one, as with the Washington Wizards and their new coach, Scott Brooksand the Minnesota Timberwovles and Tom Thibodeau. So more than two dozen assistant coaches, or former head coaches, have had to sit in those chairs, and make their cases. In many ways, it's a marriage proposal -- do you, assistant coach, take this GM and owner to be your lawfully wedded partners, to have closed-door meetings and hold trade talks, in spite of sickness and always wishing for health, 'till you part -- probably within three or four years?

New guys who've earned a shot Kenny Atkinson and Luke Walton have gotten hired; older guys who deserve a shot Patrick Ewing, Elston Turner have not gotten them. The recently fired -- Frank Vogel and Dave Joerger -- are among the newly hired. What are teams looking for? Then you try to adapt that to your personnel and get a feel for him, because you would think your coach would know your personnel and how to use it.

All the basketball things that you would expect. But then you get into the people, the relationship aspect of it, and how he sees himself as a coach and how he would manage people -- personalities. Basketball is an item. But people play the game. But he wasn't locked into that line of thinking. Mainly, he wanted head coaches who could put their own egos aside. You get into the people, the relationship aspect of it, and how he sees himself as a coach and how he would manage people -- personalities.

As long as the Billy Donovans -- who had some pro experience -- and Vogels, who are being very successful, I think you have to respect the NBA player as a player. It's a player's game. As long as you understand that -- and I think that's why the Cotton Fitzsimmonses and John MacLeods were so successful -- as long as a person understands that, I think they'll be just fine.

He was an assistant coach with the Bucks in under George Karl, with whom he'd spent nine seasons on the bench in Seattle and Milwaukee, when he first got a head coach interview, with the Detoit Pistons.

The job came up quickly and the Bucks were in the middle of a playoff series with Charlotte. But Stotts took the interview. He didn't get the job as the Pistons hired Carlisle. But he got a feel for the process. Do you want to work with this guy? Do you think he's comfortable being a leader? The owner doesn't really know the guy.

Who is this guy? So sometimes the name recognition of guys being on TV may help. When it's the GM making the hire and making the recommendation to the owner, then it maybe becomes more about style and Xs and Os.

Even then, it goes beyond Xs and Os. Every GM does his homework. He knows the pros and cons of everyone he's interviewing, strengths and weaknesses, and he knows what's good for his team. He'd gone to Atlanta to be Lon Kruger's top assistant, but Kruger only lasted 27 games into his third season as coach for the Hawks before being fired, just after Christmas. Stotts coached the Hawks for a season and a half before being fired in And, as befitting the insane nature of his profession, he was the longest-tenured coach in the Eastern Conference at the time.

There's pressure on the coach, of course and they're ultimately judged by their won-loss record. But the GM wants to keep his job secure, too. At the end of the day you have to be satisfied with what you've heard and what you know. You want to know as much as you can about the person, part with the money they're asking for these days.

In the recent past, owners gave their general managers a wide berth when interviewing coaching candidates.

What He Says Vs. What He REALLY Means (feat. Anna Akana) (Matthew Hussey, Get The Guy)

There was very little input from them. And then I chose Jack Ramsay. Usually when you were dealing with experienced guys, you kind of know they knew every style, so you could get more specific and start applying your team to that.

What are you rules? Do you have a lot of rules? How do you deal with the rules? I had my answer for that, which is you don't overreact. If you say 'be here at 9 o'clock' and he's there at 9: No conversation Don't make a drama out of it. But I do kind of want to know how they deal with that. Are they comfortable in that role?

I tried to get some feel for that. Most of the time I talked to guys I already knew. So I had more specific things I could talk to them about. Now, I would probably would add 'how much input do you think you should have in the draft, and trades?

Because now there are coaches who have all the authority. And I guess I'd want to know how much do you rely on analytics, and how many assistant coaches do you want? A lot of these guys won't let their assistants even talk in practice. He played in college at North Carolina with Larry Brown, one of his best friends in the business. So when he wanted to hire Brown inhe didn't have many questions.

They wanted to meet with Larry, so I said okay, and that's basically how we hired him. With Larry, I knew everything he was going to do. And I also knew that in the third year he'd start to get the wanderlust.

I said to our owners, 'he's going to be the best coach you've ever seen the first two years. And then the fourth year -- I don't know if he's going to make the fourth year, but if he does, he 's going to be ready to get out of here.

He reached out to Larry Bird, who was looking for somewhere to make an impact while in an executive role with the Celtics. In fact, I remember saying in that one, 'you know, you've never coached. You're going to have to have good assistants; who are you thinking of?

He was working for the Celtics, but in the front office, and didn't have that much power, and he was getting sick of that. So that's how it got started with me. Don't tell them what you think they want to hear. You have to be firm in what you believe in.

It's good to be enthusiastic. But the best thing is to be yourself, and let that come through. We were down the line by this time. I said, 'Larry, tell me how you're going to deal with this team. You know our team. And after he left, after three years, and we made the Eastern Conference finals twice, and The Finals once in his three years.

After it was all over with and I went to the next thing, I thought to myself, it's amazing; he knew exactly what he was going to do, and that's what he did.
