Do you have aspirations to be an NBA head coach again? Brian Shaw: A lot of people have called me, especially because of the NBA coaching openings that are out there right now. And I’ll say, ‘Look, I have a job.’ I’m really, really excited about this. I’m happy with what I’m doing. It’s the first time that in 32 years, since I got drafted in ’88, that I’ve actually been able to live at home and work out of the same house that I live in. … It’s nice to be able to live in my house, be able to drive 15, 20 minutes to work and be able to come home and spend time with my wife and family, kids when they’re here [they’re gone now for school].
Shaw is currently the head coach of the G League Ignite, the new developmental team featuring elite young prospects, including Jalen Green, ESPN 100’s top-rated prospect in 2020. The Ignite began practicing in Walnut Creek, California, not far from where Shaw lives in Oakland, on Aug. 28. But due to the pandemic, the 2020-21 G League season is up in the air. Shaw’s job is not only teaching basketball and life skills to teenagers, but also helping them navigate the uncertainty of the season. “As a coaching staff, we have to improvise and keep it fresh and make it challenging,” Shaw recently told The Undefeated. “But the seed that I planted from the very beginning is, ‘Look, we can complain about it all we want, but the situation is what it is.’ We can’t control a virus that is controlling everything. And so instead of complaining about it, let’s just adapt to it and do what we can in the situation. So, they’ve embraced that kind of thought process.
