Kevin Eastman knows basketball. He was an assistant coach for the Boston Celtics for eight seasons, including their 2008 championship run. After that, he was the Los Angeles Clippers' Vice-President for Basketball Operations for two seasons.
Eastman also spent 12 years as the national director of Nike's skill development programs for elite high school and college players.
In the below video, Eastman explains the hazard of parents coaching their kids from the stands. He also shares an exercise he's utilized to help get his point across to both parents and players. Ultimately, Eastman shares the perspective that it's not just about the player's performance, but it's also about equipping them with the life skills they need to be successful in any endeavor.
"Athletes play for coaches, just like people work for bosses in the real world. It is essential to communicate through coaches and bosses rather than a third party (and that's something athletes can learn through sports)," Eastman says.
