A Long Road to an NBA Bench

Liked this piece from CBS Sports on the road through the minor leagues that many coaches take to try to get to an NBA bench. There’s some really good insight here on the coaching industry in general.

“My choices were, I could be an intern assistant coach with a CBA team, and basically, I think it paid $1,000 a month,” Gates said, “or take a full-time job at Micron Technology at $55,000 coming out of college. I remember calling my dad and telling him I was going to do the basketball thing and he hung up on me.”
