From SNR: Coachie and the Kids

Sacramento News and Review has a really good piece by Nick Miller on Coachie, aka Pete Carril.

Carril moves the three Kings to a new spot and restarts the drill. When the hoops stop falling, he prods: “You can make it to five, eh?”

Across the gym, Kevin Martin yells that lunch is ready.

“We’re working with the master here,” Hawes hollers back.

Martin threatens that the pizza will disappear fast.

“They didn’t tell Luke Skywalker to stop working with Yoda,” Hawes shouts. Ribs as to whether Hawes is truly a Jedi ensue.

It’s a long read but definitely a good one.
