Episode 012: Kevin Eastman- Author (Why the Best are the Best)

In this episode we talk with Kevin Eastman who is the author of the new book Why the Best are the Best.

He has spent 13 years in the NBA serving as an assistant coach as well as VP of Basketball Operations with the Los Angeles Clippers.

He was also an assistant coach on the Boston Celtics, who won the NBA Championship in 2008 and were in the Finals in 2010.

What inspired you to write the book?

I believe there is more inside each of us but often we do not know how to get it out.  I wanted to help people reach the goals they may have set as an adult and fulfill the dreams they had as a little kid.
