Keith is one of my favorites! Got to know him very well when he coached the Sacramento Kings. Keith made one of the great shots in NCAA history giving Indiana the National Championship over Syracuse. We talk about playing for Bobby Knight and what it was like being around Don Nelson when he was worked for the Golden State Warriors. Keith took over for Paul Westphal when he became the Kings Head Coach. I asked him about coaching DeMarcus Cousins and later about his arduous battle with skin cancer. His stories about being in the cancer ward are incredible! Keith is now an assistant coach on Eric Musselman’s staff with the Arkansas Razorbacks and he shared what it’s like being around such an energetic coach. I hope you enjoy listening to one of the classiest guys in the business!
