Well, I do miss coaching particularly the competition and camaraderie. I think it's hard to have coached that long and not miss those two elements in particular. I think it's not a job; it's a lifestyle, because you're so entrenched and your schedule is completely dictated by the schedule of the NBA. And in that way, I do miss it.
How do you rate your performance as an NBA analyst?
As far as grading myself, I really don't think about it like that. I just try to do the best I can. If Mark (Gross, ESPN senior vice president) doesn't fire me after a game and I get to do another one, then I'm doing fine. I sort of let others critique and understand that they have a job. Some will like you, some you'll annoy, and others will down right detest the sound of your voice. But (I'm) just trying to do the best I can and be as fair as possible.
