A basketball coach has a myriad of responsibilities that include the importance of being a moral, upstanding role model for the players on his team. As NBA great Dave Debusschere said, »The best teams have chemistry. They communicate with each other and they sacrifice personal glory for the common goal.« A coach is not only a role model but also a mentor and teacher. A basketball coach will mold and develop his team as people as well as athletes. He is responsible for his players the same way a school teacher or parent is responsible.
