One of Joan’s characteristic phrases is: “We will never capture basketball.” As coaches, we often try to over-control the game, anticipate it, decide what will happen... but we always end up behind. I feel the same about his wisdom. No matter how hard I try, I will always be behind. He is a unique coach, pedagogue, teacher, father, mentor, professor, thinker... Sometimes, Joan is called crazy just because he is ahead of our time. I met him in a basketball coaching course... and on the court he taught me a criterion for life. During the conversation you will be able to imagine what it was like for me to stumble upon this genius when I was 15 years old.
