Summary: During the summer of 2006, I was deep into editing my first film, Walking On Dead Fish. We were working twelve-hour days, six days a week, when the owner of the editing facility and my executive producer, Stan Cassio, asked if I would coach his son's AAU team in a tournament that was coming up in Las Vegas.

We were working twelve-hour days, six days a week, when the owner of the editing facility and my executive producer, Stan Cassio, asked if I would coach his son's AAU team in a tournament that was coming up in Las Vegas. First off, let me say, I'm not a big Vegas guy, and I'm definitely not a big Vegas guy in the middle of 110-degree temperatures of mid-July. Secondly, I prefer to stay away from AAU Basketball as much as possible. Don't get me wrong, there are some great AAU coaches, but 90% of them are the reason I got out of college coaching in the first place, so there was no way I was accepting this offer. Unfortunately, Stan knew I'd been a NCAA Division One Coach and ran a NBA camp with Hall of Fame Center, Bill Walton. So, each day he'd ask again. And each day, I'd decline. Finally, two days before the tournament, still without a coach, my editor urged me to go. I think I was driving him crazy trying to figure out the second act and he needed some space, so the next thing you know, I'm in the mid-summer Vegas heat coaching a bunch of 17-year olds.
