A few weeks ago I had the distinct pleasure of spending a day with Dick Motta, a great Aggie who spent a lifetime teaching young men about basketball and life. Motta won at every level of coaching, leading Grace High School to the Idaho state championship, Weber State College to three conference championships, and the NBA Washington Bullets to their only championship, in 1978. He was known as a players’ coach, and his players, including former Utah Jazz head coach Jerry Sloan, were fiercely loyal to him. This from a man who never actually played the game beyond high school.
