Ah, Summertime. Some basketball coaches go work on their tan (Rick Pitino on a beach in Italy), some stay closer to home (Bob Huggins is at the nearest Casino w/ Dana Holgorssn), Jim Boeheim is not one of these coaches. Jim Boeheim takes a vacation from basketball with more basketball. As we all know Coach Boeheim is pulling double duty as an assistant for the Olympic team and along with some guy named Carmelo Anthony is in Las Vegas right now for training camp. Thankfully, being an Assistant Coach of a team with the most talent on earth does not require much effort and even more thanks to NBAtv for broadcasting Team USA practices. I present for you Assistant Coaching at it's finest with all the standing around trying to stay interested in cargo shorts and a polo that you can handle.
This was probably the most active Coaching Jimmy did for the whole practice. Right off the bat he was really talking to this guy about something. (Seriously, he did not leave this position for the first 20+ minutes of the broadcast)
Giving some input. "Hey, maybe we should play some zone?"
Coach K's response
Back in thought
Arms out next to Coach K
Talking with D'antoni about how much he misses Madison Square Garden and Italian restaurants in NYC
Deron Williams may be high here or just thinking about that $100 million he just deposited
Oh Hai! Mike Hopkins is there too. Coaching the USA select team
Assistant Olympic Coach-in-waiting... Already got the standing with arms crossed part down.
Carmelo was there too
He is the Master of shooting jumpers with a towel around the Neck.
