JOAN CORTÉS | The coaching genius FOSBURY FLOP

    • Sports

One of Joan’s characteristic phrases is: “We will never capture basketball.” As coaches, we often try to over-control the game, anticipate it, decide what will happen... but we always end up behind. I feel the same about his wisdom. No matter how hard I try, I will always be behind. Joan Cortés is a unique coach, pedagogue, teacher, father, mentor, professor, thinker... Sometimes, he is called crazy just because he is ahead of our time. I met Joan in a basketball coaching course... and on the court he taught me a criterion for life. During the conversation you will be able to imagine what it was like for me to stumble upon this genius when I was 15 years old.
The conversation is in Catalan. You can watch it with English subtitles in the YouTube video of the episode or read the automatic English transcript by clicking on the menu above.
