"I would say, “You know what it takes, so just stay focused and focus on your own journey. Be confident in what you know and what you’ve learned in the past. All of those (experiences) will help you be in the position where you are today.”"

The Coaches Corner
"“Really sit down and do a deep dive. Reflect on how you'd like to be involved in the game. If it is college coaching or being in the NBA or high school coaching or grade school coaching, there's always going to be an element of service for your players. From there, try to find within your network of friends, family, colleagues, former classmates, etcetera opportunities where you can present yourself in the right light as a basketball coach—whether it be your understanding of offensive and defensive schemes or your ability to help players become better individually.”"
— Coach Griffin on pieces of advice he would give to someone interested in pursuing
a career in coaching.

"I would say, “Just work. Pay attention to the fundamentals because those small things add up. Some growth is better than no growth...As long as you are getting 1% better, it's all going to add up. Do everything at your pace and what's best for you. You don't have to look at what anybody else has because everybody has different timing. When it's meant for you, you will have it—as long as you put in the work and stand for what you're doing. Always have fun, and embrace and cherish every opportunity that you get.”"
