Runnin' The Show
Basketball Leadership for Coaches and Players
Runnin' the Show spells out what it takes to be a real leader on a basketball court. How can a coach get the most from his players? How can a player make everyone around her better and do the little things that lead to championship performance? Leaders have to sell their dreams, get players to work together, inspire teamwork, and understand people, attitudes, and motivation. This is the last book Dick DeVenzio ever published and is a treasure for leaders in all walks of life.
Dick DeVenzio gave his life to sports and to the pursuit of excellence. The son of a successful basketball coach, Dick grew up wanting to be a basketball star.

Considered by many to be a basketball genius, Dick's writings have inspired countless coaches and athletes. He died in 2001 at age 52.
