Calkins: Praising Former Blazers Assistant Bill Bayno

3
Matt Calkins of The Columbian writes that we should take a moment to appreciate former Portland Trail Blazers assistant coach Bill Bayno as he heads to join Rick Adelman's Minnesota Timberwolves staff. --------------------- Six months ago, Bayno stepped into the Trail Blazers practice facility weight room to exercise his body and exorcise his demons. For the first time since his diagnosis 2½ years earlier, he publicly divulged the details of the mental health disorder that forced him to resign as the head coach of the Loyola Marymount men’s basketball team. The revelation included tales of near sleepless weeks and a willingness to swallow eight times the amount of his recommended medication dosage, all in an effort to combat the "maladaptive perfectionism" that emerged whenever he was placed in charge of a program. ... Most coaches teach their players how to be superior in every way. Bayno showed how it’s OK if they’re not. --------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
