NBA contributor

A lifetime passion for basketball has lead me from player to entrepreneur to chasing the coaching dream; high school; ABA; Summer League and training camp coach with the Knicks and Grizzlies; skills coach for various NBA'ers. As well, I spout off NBA opinions on "Sportstalk with Dan Russell," on CISL AM650 (Vancouver). Big fan of Coke Zero Cherry.
