Youth Basketball Coach Runs Onto Court, Rejects His Own Player (Video)
When you’re dealing with a little kid, there’s only so many times you can scream “Wrong way!” before you need to step out onto the court and SHOW him what’s what.
If that involves rejecting the hell out of the little kid’s shot, then so be it.
Because while a child’s fragile self-esteem and trust issues will be around forever, what isn’t as durable is the score of a Peewee basketball game among six-year-olds. That’s what’s really important.
Did the coach really need to put the kid on the ground? Wouldn’t a swat into the stands have sufficed?
Maybe, but I don’t think we’d be sharing the video unless the coach went all out.
