There is no greater honor than coaching for USA basketball!?! Seriously? I mean, it is great he was asked to coach and all but it's your over-the-top platitudes about all things related to Coach Mason that leave people scratching their heads. You have a good coach and a solid program. But the incessant drum beating simply begs for people to react. And then you accuse them of dishonoring one America's great heroes when they do! Honestly, the guy is simply a basketball coach. And while all coaches strive to make a difference in their players lives, and while he should be commended for his efforts, it really doesn't go any farther than that, does it? And that's OK! It sounds like he is making a difference at Brush. Good for him.No I was not disrespectful to Coach Babe at all. I thought this was a forum to discuss high school basketball but apparently some people like Mugnmaul and Bball216 take it personally.
I certainly would not disrespect serving one’s country. After all, Coach Mason was one of two (Coach Flannery from St. Ed’s was the other) to be chosen to represent USA Basketball this past summer. There is no greater honor than serving for the greatest team in the world.
