An excerpt from the book:
Rarely do NBA head coaches immediately make an impact in the league where all the greatest minds in basketball coach the best athletes of the sport. It takes months or even years to try to convince the players and entire organization to buy into the system you seek to sell. It would take even longer to perfect that system while several other teams in the league are brandishing strategies and plays they have been using for several years already.
What is even more difficult is to try to lead a young team that has minimal playoff experience on your first stint as a coach at any level of basketball. But the Golden State Warriors' Steve Kerr did it. He immediately made an impact in a league that already had established title favorites coming into his first season as a head coach of the Warriors. He would shake the heads of contenders, critics, and fans alike by leading a young and inexperienced Golden State Warriors to a remarkable 67-15 regular season record and an eventual NBA title in his first season.
