Basketball on the Edge – Recruiting Players Who Are Energy Raisers

This is a great video of Celtics Coach Brad Stevens talking with high school student-athletes about why he wants players who are Energy Raisers to be on his team. Stevens discusses the the fact that “intangibles” and being a great leader/teammate can make up for a lack of great basketball skills.

Energy Raisers are the type of leaders who put the needs of others first leading to success for both themselves and their team.
