    Paul Westhead (@CoachWesthead) - NBA & WNBA Championship Head Coach, Creator of "The System"

    Paul Westhead (@CoachWesthead) - NBA & WNBA Championship Head Coach, Creator of "The System"

    Paul Westhead (@CoachWesthead), the only Head Coach to win both a NBA Title (Los Angeles Lakers, 1980) and WNBA Title (Phoenix Mercury, 2007) joins us for a wide-ranging conversation that covers his incredible basketball career. Westhead invented “The System”, which has led to record-breaking scoring including his 1989-90 Loyola Marymount team setting an all-time single season scoring record of 122 points per game. Westhead shares incredible stories from coaching Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Diana Taurasi, Bo Kimble and the late Hank Gathers. He also reflects on his Philadelphia upbringing (where he attended St. Joseph’s University and coached at Lasalle University), the hotbed of Philly coaches (Jack Ramsey, Jack McKinney, Jim Lynam, Matt Guokas and Westhead) and winning the 1980 NBA Championship with the Lakers in his hometown of Philadelphia against the 76ers. Westhead discusses his time at Loyola Marymount University where he coached the Lions to a Great Eight appearance in the NCAA Tournament after the tragic death of LMU star Hank Gathers. For old school basketball fans and for those who are interested in the original blueprint for the high scoring NBA offenses that exist today, this conversation is full of stories and incredible insight. Westhead has a new book - The Speed Game: My Fast Times in Basketball - coming out in November, 2020. Pre-order now on Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Follow Westhead on Twitter @CoachWesthead.

Really Unique Stories

Love the really unique perspectives and stories that are presented here. Honestly they’re not all my cup of tea but for the overwhelming most part, these pods are a solid listen.

not fashionable 1950s ,

Covid19 Roundtable

This was the most insightful discussion of the effect of Covid19 will have on sport.

Very pleasing but some areas for improvement

It's a one of a kind.
A great insight into the US sports market.
Berger is a great host, very knowledgable and full of hard hitting insights. Guests are good and they get to the bottom of the real issues behind the stories they cover.

A few minor glitches. It talks about College Football all the time, some weeks you wonder if you are just listening to a repeat of a pervious week. It also focuses on American sport far too much, from time to time they should feature non-US sports / events / teams / leagues, and foreign points of view as this will aid the listener. Finally, the music is terrible, it is like a bad under 17 pop concert. SBR is a credible sports show that shoots itself in the foot by playing awful sugary American pop music.

A very good podcast though if you have any interest in the business of sport.
