Natalie Nakase knows there's more to her job than winning games. The American is the first female coach in Japan's professional men's basketball league.
Two years after leaving high school early for a career as a professional basketball player, Jeremy Tyler is about to find out if he's good enough for the NBA.
Once touted as a potential No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, American teenager Jeremy Tyler has moved on from a disappointing stint in Israel to try rebuilding his game in Japan with the help of former NBA coach Bob Hill.
LeBron James needed only four years to reach the NBA Finals. Tim Duncan was a champion in half that time.
"I would never bet against her," Hill told The Associated Press via email. "Her strength is her desire to coach men and win. I believe she will continue to learn and become an outstanding coach. I think this season has taught her many, many valuable lessons."
Hill said he expects Nakase to keep progressing as a coach.
