Linked below is Billy Donovan’s appearance on The Vertical Podcast back in August. Really good stuff from Donovan on how he approached building a relationship with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, getting input from your players, dealing with a player that wants a bigger role, how he handles a blowout loss, how Westbrook sets the standard for the Thunder organization, working for Rick Pitino and why he didn’t transfer out of Providence College (see below).
