I love this #4 posting in "Brendan Suhr's Top 10 Chuck Daly "Dalyisms." I feel like this is the point in the season when this quote might really hit home. Some coaches have endured tough seasons, and others have experienced their best, but no matter which one is you, it is time to land the plane. It is time to finish strong. Hopefully you've kept your composure and stayed focused throughout the season. Stay strong. Stay committed. Rise Up.
“Coaching is like flying an airplane, there is going to be a lot of turbulence, but your job is to land the plane safely.”
During the season, there are going to be a lot of ups and downs, but as the coach you have to understand you have to remain calm and poised and remember the goals that you have established for the team. On the road to each Championship season, we had major turmoil occur, but Chuck landed the plane safely.
