How to become a coach for an NBA team?

It is an undeniable fact that it is very much difficult. But to make it, you have to be full of experience of different basketball teams. Beginning with lower leagues is the key to success. However, you need to make achievements to create positive aspects for yourself. Hard-working is the key.

You can tell it best by seeing whether a team plays for each other instead of for themselves and whether they do things they should do on each end of the floor consistently or whether there are lapses and inconsistencies with doing those things. A well-coached team consistently plays hard defense, consistently goes after 50/50 balls and rebounds consistently spaces the floor well and move the ball well, consistently looks for each other, passing up good shots for even better ones, and consistently takes care of the ball and limits turnovers. A well-coached team listens also in the huddle instead of being distracted, and when faced with the same adversity or challenges later which it failed to meet initially, takes a better approach and succeeds in subsequent chances. When you see a basketball team do these things, you know the coach is a good one.

What do you need to become a coach?

Sometimes you could’ve been a former college or High School player that was talented but wasn’t talented enough to move on the next level. In this case, you could still peruse what you love just from a different perspective.

You might have never really been skilled enough at basketball but know the game well and can coach others well. Coaching requires some experience in that field though, but it doesn’t always have to come from directly playing basketball it can come from watching it and giving your examples and lessons not from what you have experienced but from what you have watched others experience.

Jason Kidd was the floor general, coach and point guard for the New Jersey Nets back in the 90s. The arrangement was perfect, Byron Scott just keeps up with his ‘suit’ game and keep ‘gettin’ dem checks’ while Kidd drags the Nets to a back to back NBA finals.

But no you can’t have the player who also the Head Coach but you have cases where the HC is so bad that you know their HoF player is doing the work for him game in and out.


So, these were all the things which are required to become a coach in the NBA. The best coach of the year is also given a trophy after NBA finals. If you know the latest basketball news then you might have heard about this award. Now, work hard on your dreams and execute them and become the coach for an NBA team.
