    A "player's coach" is a coach who the players get behind and like to play for.

    not even close.

    A player's coach is someone who gets along with his players on more than just a mentor-student level. They'll often have practices tailored to what the players like best (a la Erik Spolstra). They also aren't usually the most strict or no BS guys in the business, they don't scold/yell as much as other coaches, and their tolerance level is higher than others. Finally a player's coach would probably be more involved in a player's life off the court, and have a greater kind of emotional investment in their success in life.

    Not a great comparison but a traditional coach would be like an old strict father coaching your AAU team, a player's coach would be like your best friend coaching the team.

    Thanks for clearing that up. That said, Johnson is a player's coach.

    It must not have been Ricky Stoke's goal. So no... not every coach (tic)
