Web Exclusive: Being on the Floor at Games
Shauna Lake: I've always wondered--I mean you get out on the floor there's that pumping of the crowd, what does that feel like?
Tyrone Corbin: It's absolutely amazing. If you can describe it it’s just it's like you wait for the moment the horn blows and you come through the tunnel. The crowds go how they go and you just, everything is focused on performing and you have to relish in the moment. Some guys get intimidated because of the loudness of it and the nerve wracking making a mistake. And everything is so instant you make a mistake you’re in front of 20,000 folk and they see it and the TV crowd can be whatever number that is but there is instant gratification or instant failure and you know it immediately. So you have to embrace it and you have to enjoy those moments and that's what it’s like now as a coach seeing the guys live through that and some guys can relish in the moment and some guys get all nervous in the moment and some guys just go through it. And so how do you mold a team around getting the young guys to understand the importance of everything they do on the floor. And that can have an effect on whether you win or lose a game.
