Coaching in the 'Diva Generation'

Sunday, April 28, 2013

"It used to be you were taught more than you actually played," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "Now they play more than they're taught, so I think you're getting more athletic players but fewer players who understand the team concept. I don't know so much that they're divas as they are a little bit more concerned with their individual outcome than their collective outcome." Blaming the summer circuit for the evils of basketball is nothing new, but it is also not without reason. (ESPN.com)
