Get ready to change your definition of a team 22 avril 2010
Par Carly Gleason - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I have always been a huge fan of basketball, especially the Chicago Bulls. Being from Chicago I have always been a fan and the highlights and stories I've seen are just amazing. I am also a big fan of Phil Jackson, so I decided to read the book he wrote when he was a coach for the Bulls, "Sacred Hoops". Once I started; I just couldn't stop until I got to the end. "Sacred Hoops" is more than just a book about basketball, it's a book about life lessons that Phil Jackson has learned during the years he spent coaching the Bulls.

Although there are a lot of great spiritual lessons in the book anyone who reads it cannot help but be intrigued about the basketball part. Phil Jackson was a part of the Chicago Bulls organization while it was going through one of the greatest runs in all of NBA basketball. Between the years of 1990 and 1993, the Bulls won three straight NBA championship titles, making their mark in the basketball world forever. As many people know, this was the time that Michael Jordan was on the team and helped carry the team to the championship. The summer after the last championship, Jordan announced his retirement from the basketball world and shocked everyone. One year later, Jordan decided to come back to the league and from 1996 to1998 the bulls made a run for another 3-peat. Some argue that the Bulls became the best team ever in basketball. But, the team was nothing without a great coach.

Although winning was very important to Phil Jackson, he knew there were a lot more important things too. He took a lot of the knowledge he from his studies of different religions such as Buddhism, and incorporated them into the way he coached his teams. His goal was to take the professional sports self-centered and competitive attitude and make it in an enlightened and selfless organization. In a world where money, media, and arrogance dominates the athletes, Phil Jackson tried to implement the Triangle Offense which brought all his teachings into terms that even the biggest of all egos could understand.

Overall, this book really has inspired me just like it has with many of the other readers that have commented about the book. The book has a lot of great lessons that I really think I could try and bring into my own life. There's really nothing about this book I didn't like. Anyone who decides to read this book, whether you are a basketball fan or not, will be sucked in and won't be able to put it down.

Michael Jordan meets Zen 3 janvier 2007
Par Lankhorst - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If you are into spiritual exploration and you love watching basketball then you will find this an amazing book. This book captures beatutifully how you can apply Zen Buddhist philosophies to daily life (although maybe coaching Michael Jordan is not ordinary daily life ...). Especially interesting if you want to understand how you can use Zen Buddhism to stimulate teamwork. Sacred Hoops gave me many ideas on which to reflect. I highly recommend it.

17 Sentences You'll Like 14 juin 2010
Par Sean J. Giorgianni - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If there were a Mount Rushmore of basketball coaches, Phil Jackson would have to be there (along with John Wooden, Dean Smith, and Wilbur Flatch). Phil Jackson is like tacos de tripa - either you like him or you don't; but unlike tacos made from the stomach of a cow, there's always something you can learn from him.

Here are 17 sentences from Sacred Hoops by Phil Jackson that I think I like:

1. "... success comes from being awake, aware, and in tune with others."
2. For the raindrop, joy is entering the river - Ghalib
3. "One day my mother wasn't home when I returned from school and I got so frightened the rapture had started without me that I ran all over town looking for her."
4. "Lesson one: Don't let anger ... cloud the mind."
5. Lesson two: Awareness is everything."
6. Our own life is the instrument with which we experiment with the truth. - Thich Nhat Hanh
7. "Arguing isn't where faith is. That just feeds the ego. It's all in the doing."
8. "Awareness is the seed of compassion."
9. "My brothers and I ... dug my father's grave ..."
10. One of the most important qualities of a leader is listening without judgement, or with what Buddhists call bare attention.
11. If we rage and resist, our angry, fearful minds have trouble quieting down sufficiently to allow us to act in the most beneficial way for ourselves and others.
12. One of the most important qualities of a leader is listening without judgement.
13. Vision is the source of leadership.
14. The acceptance of boundaries and limits is the gateway to freedom.
15. One instant is eternity.
16. If you have a clear mind and an open heart, you won't have to search for direction. Direction will come to you.
17. When I understand that this glass is already broken, every moment with it is precious. Impermanence is a fundamental fact of life.

Sacred Hoops 3 mai 2009
Par Cheryl A. Novak - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons of a Hardwood Warrior by Phil Jackson is an exhilarating story of Phil Jackson's life and life lessons. I am a high school student and I really enjoyed this book. I also play basketball and this book helped me stop and think about what my actions will be.

Mr. Jackson's main goals were to not only teach readers about his coaching career, but to teach them about Zen and Native American principles. The reader will be intrigued, as was I, with the Zen teachings. Phil Jackson was a Christian from Montana who became enlightened by Zen after being so stressed out. Phil accomplished his goals well in this book. Some people may be influenced enough by this book to go learn more about Zen that's how good this book is written.

How Sacred Hoops is written is one of its main strengths. It's very easy to read and it's hard to put down. Everything is explained to perfection. It's also not just for basketball fans. Anyone can read this book no matter what kind of books the reader is in to.

One negative about this book is the length. I would've liked it to be longer and have given me more information. Other than that small thing, the book was very good.

The one-star review of this book was about how Sacred Hoops is nonsense and that Phil Jackson's quotes will make you "laugh out loud". They also said that if Phil Jackson is an intellectual in the NBA, than the NBA is in trouble. The only thing relevant about that is that Phil Jackson wrote the book. Phil Jackson's quotes are very good and meaningful. This book is makes complete sense unlike what the one-star reviewer said.

Sacred Hoops is a very meaningful book about Phil Jackson's life and his own experiences with Zen. The reader doesn't have to have any prior knowledge of Zen or basketball to enjoy this book.

Sacred Hoops-High School Student 4 mai 2009
Par Alex Oplawski - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I picked this book to read because I have always loved basketball and I have played it for most of my life. I have always been a Bulls' fan and my dad always tells me stories about the Bulls, Michael Jordan, and the duo three-peat championships. Phil Jackson was the coach of the Bulls for both of the championship runs and in his book he talks about different strategies he uses to work with the players.

In the book he also connects the spiritual world to the sport of basketball and focuses his coaching on making the players work as a single unit while on the court. He taught the players to work in sync with each other and he helped each player grow spiritually.

Phil Jackson also uses the book to teach many spiritual lessons and strong morals to his readers. He teaches how to become in-tune with the spiritual world and he writes about lessons he learned from the Lakota Indian Tribe. He talks about how as a child he was taught fundamentalist Christian ways. But as he became an adult he drifted away from his childhood teachings and became a student of Zen Buddhism. In turn, he uses the Zen teachings to work with his players to mold them into a solid group that will help each other and work with each other on the court. Phil also teaches how even in the egotistic arena of professional basketball the players can be taught to be selfless. It is also pretty hard to believe that a basketball player could have such deep feelings and put so much thought into the game that he loved, but obviously Phil Jackson was a very wise player and a great spiritual teacher.

Even though some people think that this book is nothing more than a story about the Bulls, it actually teaches the reader life lessons that they can apply to almost anything, not just basketball.

Although, at points I found the book to be somewhat repetitive, it still managed to get its message and spiritual teachings across. I recommend this book to everyone, especially if you love basketball or are looking for spiritual insight.
