In our first interview, we shared Dr. Burson’s incredible journey and discussed his recently published an extraordinary book The Golden Whistle: Going Beyond: The Journey To Coaching Success. His career included teaching academic classes, playing and coaching a variety of sports at the collegiate level, assisting fellow Ohioan Bob Knight with the 1984 U.S. Olympic team, being featured in Sports Illustrated as the “Great Disseminator” of the famed Princeton Offense, serving as president of the National Association of Basketball Coaches, and serving as a consultant and business owner continuing to serve the game.
Dr. Burson has a book coming out soon called “Daily Nuggets”, which is a way readers can engage the ten golden nuggets on a daily basis. Dr. Burson talked about how The Golden Whistle has increased his connections and opportunities to speak and coach.
We went into extensive detail about how important it is to be a continuous learner and some strategies on how to apply what a reader learns.
This show brings the audience great things Ohioians are doing to make their communities, the state, the region, and the world a better place as entrepreneurs, leaders, historical and popular culture figures.
In the dozen years I coached basketball at different levels, I was far more advanced in my teaching of defense than offense. I immersed myself in the study of offensive systems, but I was not sure of what I was looking for.
Then, I got clarity on what I wanted. I wanted to find an offensive system that could be used against any type of defense. That would free up more practice time to work on skill development, which was my main priority.
In learning about the 1-4 High Offense and Open Post Offense, I discovered these offenses would cover all situations. We could run motion, we could ball screen, we could work against a zone, we could have a delay game, we could combat defensive pressure. The players were able to catch onto the basics quickly, which allowed to incorporate some of the special entries to take advantage of special talents that players had.
Does this system seem like it can help your team?
