Sacred Hoops is an inside look at the higher wisdom of teamwork from Chicago Bulls' head coach Phil Jackson. At the heart of the book is Jackson's philosophy of mindful basketball ---- and his lifelong quest to bring enlightenment to the competitive world of professional sports. One of the most successful coaches in NBA history, Jackson has developed a new paradigm of leadership based on Eastern and Native American principles. In this inspiring memoir, filled with stories about Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippin, Toni Kukoc, Dennis Rodman, and other members of the Bulls, Jackson reveals how he directs players to act with a clear mind ---- not thinking, just doing; to respect the enemy and be aggressive without anger or violence; to live in the moment and stay calmly focused in the midst of chaos, so that the "me" becomes the servant of "we."
This thought-provoking book takes you inside the mind of the thinking man's coach as he builds one of the greatest teams of all time and deals with the inevitable cycle of change, including Jordan's triumphant return to basketball. Sacred Hoops is not just for sports fans, but for anyone interested in the potential of the human spirit.
