How Nurse’s approach has come to define his Raptors team, by JLew1050. READ:

Kawhi Leonard

“It’s kinda like the way I approach a lot of things,” Nurse said on Saturday afternoon, a few hours after learning he had won NBA Coach of the Year. Once they started playing a recorded message from his high school basketball coach, Wayne Chandlee, he figured something was up. When Chandlee, who coached him as a ninth grader at Kuemper Catholic School in Iowa, congratulated him on winning Coach of the Year, it nearly brought him to tears.– the first two players that Nurse spoke to after Leonard made his decision last summer – delivered him the trophy.

“They all looked like absolute s--- to me, so I figured I better get working on coaching and figure it out,” he joked. It’s not a coincidence that this Raptors team has adopted so many of those qualities. They play hard every night but there’s a calmness and quiet confidence to them. They always seem to find a way to figure things out – whether they’re undermanned going into a game, or battling back from a double-figure deficit. Just like their head coach, they never seem overwhelmed. They never panic.
