Players First: Coaching from the Inside Out by John Calipari and Michael Sokolove:
Steve Kerr, the former Chicago Bulls player, was doing commentary for CBS. Somebody told me later what he said about me. “He’s been so loose, but I think it’s been a little bit of an act.” He was right. Part of coaching is acting. It’s true of any kind of leadership, whether you’re a CEO, an army general, or a father. Part of the job is that you don’t reveal your apprehensions. I don’t ever go into games thinking we’re going to lose, but of course I get anxious.
