BILLY, THE NBA IS CHALLENGING TO ALL COLLEGE COACHES JUST LKE EVERTHING IN LIFE IS. EVERYONE WANTS TO GO TO THE TOP. THE NBA IS THE TOP FOR COLLEGE COACHES. MOST OF THEM DON'T MAKE IT IN THE NBA. THEN WHAT HAPPENS THEIR JUST ANOTHER NBA LOSER. SOMETIMES THE TOP IN LIFE IS THE BOTTOM.

I think the NBA is an easier gig than college. More than 50% of NBA teams, many with losing records, can advance to the NBA playoffs. Instead of relying on boosters and ticket sales for better facilities, you can move to a new city or demand more money from local taxes. In college hoops, you have teams with winning records who don't even make it to the NIT.
