Scott Fields
Eurobasket.com had a chance to talk to Coach Scott Fields. Scott has over twenty years of coaching experience and 15 seasons as Professional Head Coach, has accumulated an incredible Win percentage of nearly 800 %. Scott has the background and experience to be an asset to any club or franchise looking to take things to the next level. Scott's teams have won an Asian Championship to add to his list of honors and accolades. Scott's experiences have taken him from coaching at the highest profile colleges and universities in the United States, where his teams were ranked nationally, and he had coached the "National Player of the Year." He has won several 'Coach of the Year' awards, in Europe, where he has coached clubs to the best ever seasons, and National Team experience, and a two Championships in the Middle East/Asia. Scott has also coached at the notorious summer leagues in Italy and Los Angeles/Long Beach and Las Vegas/Salt Lake City's NBA summer leagues.

Hi Coach, thank you for sitting with us. Your CV is so impressive and full of various awards, achievements... but let's maybe start from the beginning. How it all started?

First and foremost, I am honored and humbled to share this time together with you. Thanks for having me for this interview.
It all started for me growing up in the great basketball state of Indiana. I grew up with the passion and love for the game. I was a High School Hall of Fame player who went on the play in college. I have been very luck to learn the game from great coaches who I played for and also worked for as a college assistant coach.
I always knew I wanted to be apart of the game. I felt I had the energy, enthusiasm and ability to not only relate with the players but effectively communicate well and teach the game.
I knew at an early age this was my calling in life. I have always wanted to be a basketball coach. I have found my niche coaching as a professional.


People who know you they all admit that once you speak to Scott you soon realize why success follows him. You are a highly positive and motivating person. Foucussed on sucess. How important it is and how does it help you in coaching job.

To be honest, the positivity comes from the passion for the game. I dont focus on success, I focus on teaching the details of the game. The success comes as a bi product of the work ethic. The enthusiasm becomes contagious and it builds a life of it own within the team. If I can inflict my will on the team and we have by in from the players. I have full confidence the success will come and the players will develop into better players as the confidence they gain from their hardwork.
When a player and a team plays with confidence, great things will happen.
It is a style, a brand a product on and off the court. But I appreciate your kind words.


We also heard about your impact on the local community, whererver you coach. I assume it is not only about coaching job. You also serve as a community leaders and kind of role model? Both on and off court.

I try to embrace the community where I coach, I like to have an active role within the communities. I try to build authentic relationships and give back to them for their support of what we are building. I like to be work with and develop the youth in the community.
Basketball is a wonderful platform but at the end of the day people can forget what you say, but people never forget what you do for them. If I can inspire someone to overcome obstacles and assist them in attaining their goals it is a very gratifying thing off the court.
You will see me working with youth, speaking with businesses and industry leaders. You will find me working with less fortunate and special needs individuals. I do make it a priority to win games as it is a business, but yes, off the court, I am a blessed human and I hope to empower and inspire others.


You have travelled all over the world. What was the most exotic place you have coached? Many places, completely different cultures. What are your best/worse memmories? These basketball related and these from the culture experience point of view.

I have been blessed to have traveled the globe coaching the game I love. I make all situations a learning situation for me personally and professionally, I become entrenched in the cultures. I have many wonderful memories both on and off the court.
I will say this my time in the NBA summer leagues have been valuable for my professional growth as a coach.

Internationally,
I try to learn the local language. I make it an effort to engage with the people and fans.
I have many favorite memories...
I truly enjoy the level of basketball in Venezuala, Puerto Rico, Lebanon and China.
I enjoyed the culture in Sweden and Lebanon. These were beautiful countries with beautiful landscapes and fans who were passionate about the game.
Sweden was pristine and clean like a national park.
Lebanon had both beaches and mountains and had very passionate fans.
My wife loved Venezuala for the sun and warm weather.

Again I take the positives from every opportunity.


You are also known as a player development coach. Can you name the best players you have coached?

I have been extremely lucky to have coached some of the top international players. Many of these players represent their countries while playing for their national teams in both the World Championships and the Olympic games. It is a large list over 100 players.
Yes, I have coached former NBA MVP Steph Curry on a couple occasions I coached him as a rookie with the Golden State Warriors in the NBA summer league and again at an NBA Charity event. I coached the "Tiger" Fadi Khatib in Lebanon, to me he was an NBA level player and top player in Asia after Yao Ming left China to play for the Rockets. Again, it is a large list, I will just feel like a name dropper. I will just say many top names from many top countries.


What are you doing now? You organize clinics, camps, player development coach, motivator ....

Now I am between coaching positions, I have been able to coach my adopted son Brandon Sly with his AAU, his college teams. He and I shared great success together on the court. He has recently graduated from ASU and he has signed with an agent to start his professional career. Yes, I have coached around the globe but coaching your son and having success and watching his growth and development has been the most rewarding work of my life. It became a family affair for my beautiful wife Kim and I and our daugther Whittney.
Brandon was runner up to player of the year in his RMAC conference. He had an MVP Thanksgiving tournament triple double performance. Brandon also had 15 double/doubles on the season and 25 20 pt + games.
He was only the second player in the schools history to score 1000 pts in only two seasons.
He is a player, he has a high basketball IQ, and the thing I am most proud of he is a high character young man.
He we make an outstanding pro. His future is bright. Teams will be lucky to have him. He is a coach on the floor. A lefty point guard with a great skill set and work ethic. We are very proud of him.
Just another special player from my coaching tree.


One more question ... What is the Coach Scott Fields Show?

The Coach Scott Fields show is something I take great pride in. Since I am between coaching positions I am using this platform to Serve.Empower.Inspire. others in the personal and professional endeavors. I have many of my personal friends who are NBA front office executives, NBA coaches, NBA players, also motivating and inspiring guest and top sports entertainment industry leaders on the show.
I do this to allow viewers to learn from these successful individuals journeys and stories.
I would now invite all to Like/Follow our show page.
It is a Live show with Live interaction.

I am confident friends, fans, players and coaches will learn and grow from this show.

I do hope to land another professional coaching position. I feel I bring a wealth of experience to the table and we have a proven winning track record.
I am eager for the next coaching position.


Thank you coach, it was a pleasure talking to you.

Thanks so much for your time. I appreciate the opportunity to share our passion of the game we All love.
It was my pleasure to share this time with you here at Eurobasket.com

Thanks again for the opportunity.
