This video of Kobe getting post up tips from Hakeem OlajuwonÃ‚Â is from all the way back in Oct. 09, but is one for the ages.
You will forgive me, dear readers, as I go all mushy on you for a little bit. I just need to write this all down before it passes.
So five years ago (can’t believe its been that long), I coached the 17 and under kids in the village liga in Cainta where I lived, and I continued to coach all the four years I lived there. Despite it’s ups and downs (I still believe we wuz robbed of a Championship), overall it was a wonderful experience I would never forget. Not necessarily because of the game and coaching per se, more likely because I became friends with the kids and became part of a community.
