Learn and Get Better

Steven D’Sousa details Nick Nurse journey to the NBA championship.

“I think you can’t do very good work if you don’t love what you’re doing and I just never really got discouraged. I didn’t really care (about) the level I was coaching at and I was just trying to learn and get better, that’s it.

Boti Nagy adds a couple of insights about Nurse.

Originally from Iowa, Nurse, 52, in June joined the elite company of Steve Kerr (Golden State Warriors, 2015), Tyronn Lue (Cleveland Cavaliers, 2016), Pat Riley (Los Angeles Lakers, 1982) and Paul Westhead (Los Angeles Lakers, 1980) as NBA championship-winning coaches in their rookie season as a head coach.


NICK Nurse has been to the top of the mountain, and he didn’t take any short-cuts getting there, so his views on all things basketball make for thought-provoking reading.
