Net Cords: Brian Shaw's Work With Pacers Coaching Staff Paying Off

Head coaches in the NBA get a lot of attention for obvious reasons. But the reality is, the assistants are doing important work and on good teams they can make a big difference when it comes to improving the skills of young players and those on the end of the bench that don't get much game time.

This is certainly the case with the Indiana Pacers who are having a very successful season. Credit for that goes beyond that talent on the roster and the decisions of head coach Frank Vogel.

SB Nation's Pacer's blog Indy Cornrows has the story.

Brian Shaw Puts The 'Work' In Pre-Game Workouts For Pacers - Indy Cornrows

Shaw really keeps the players' attention with the benefit of his been-there-done-that advice backed up by his experience winning championships as a player and assistant coach. Shaw also has the game to combine his words with workouts that push players to improve. The individual work players put in with coaches on game day is a key part of their development and preparation for games, even moreso this season with limited practice time.

'Net Cords' features the great work being done by the SB Nation network of NBA team sites.
