Basketball is won on the court, but to create a team ready to win, basketball players must devote their lives both on and off the court to the sport. It is not enough for very talented basketball players to come together to form a good basketball team. It is necessary for these players to be able to take their place on the court, away from conflict, in peace and like a harmonious family. When it comes to basketball at the amateur level, basketball coaches are there to provide this harmony beyond giving tactics.
