I’m so happy the NBA is back! It’s been awesome and so fun to watch. I’ve been extremely surprised at level of competition. Given the length of the hiatus due to the Global Pandemic. The NBA has done a superb job putting it all together over there on Campus In Orlando. (Affectionally known as The Bubble / The NBA Bubble) It’s really been nothing short of remarkable! Everyone in NBA has done an excellent with the Social Justice Movement around the world! The NBA Players have used there Platforms to perfection! On that very positive note today I’m going to talk about Raptors Coach Of year Nick Nurse. Coach Nurse is definitely the straw that stirs the drink up there in Toronto! He has made the team a well oiled machine. Nick has absolutely been able to maximize his teams ability. He what’s known as a players coach, His players really love and respect him. Nick and his coaching staff were rewarded back in February with coaching the All Star Game in Chicago!… Coach Nurse has tremendous interpersonal skills and he is a versitile coach . Being adaptable is his forte as the Raptors Headman. He lead the Raptors to second best record in the Eastern Conference with a mark of 53 and 19 second best record in the league overall Second only to Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks. He is nick nicknamed the Greak Freek most likely Milwaukee and Toronto will be competing in Eastern Conference Finals very soon. Back to Coach Nurse what he has done this year after loosing Superstar Kawhi Lenoard to the Clippers and not mention also Danny Green, to the Lakers, is nothing short of remarkable. He most definitely without a Shadow of a doubt, proved all his doubters wrong. I was admittedly was. one of them. Me and the rest of the American Media. Although now the Toronto Raptors have finally gained respect South Of The Border. I’m honestly very surprised that it took this long. I mean for God-sake the Raptors won a Championship this last year. I mean just from a logical perspective you would think that the Defending Champions would have more respect by now. I personally think its the American Canadian little brother big brother complex. I think it will always be that way unfortunately! Nick the Caroll Iowa Native has definitely payed his dues as a coach more any other NBA Coach starting his coaching at the University Of Northern Iowa as as an Assistant coach over 30 years ago. Then Nick went over to England to coach as a Player Assistant with Derby Rams. Then he went back to the states to coach at Grand View University in De Moines Iowa in his home State. Coach Nurse then continued on to become an assistant coach at the University of South Dakota. He then went to back to British Basketball League for serval years. The very Worldly coach also had a very short stint in the Belgian Basketball League, in between being the United Kingdom. He Finally returned stateside in 2005 with the NBA G League back then it was called the D League. The NBA Minor League. with Oklahoma Storm yet again as an assistant coach he finally got a head coaching opportunity in the G League with the Iowa Energy in De Moines in 2007 for 4 years. Then he got a head another head coaching opportunity with Rio Grande Valley Vipers, in Edinburg Texas for 2 years until 2013. The finally The NBA Came knocking on his door with the Toronto Raptors he was brought on as assistant under Dwayne Casey, Only five years later little did he know he would become successor!.. in 2018!.. and as they say the rest is history!….
We The North!!!….
