The art of delivering a good speech to your team during a timeout is all about making a cliche sound inspiring. Few do it better than Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins. Here he is with a well-delivered anecdote to his Grizzlies team during Game 7.
With his Grizzlies team playing tight in the heat of a Game 7, this was exactly what they needed to hear. Recently, they've played inspired ball and have gotten right back into this game.
I think I would like playing for Hollins if I was an athlete.
