I love how he's been talking with people from the 80s 49ers teams and other similar teams to try and figure out how it CAN be done. Great attitude and strategy.
I love listening to Dean speak.
When I saw the thread, the first thing I thought was how long till he mentions San Jose... Bam, first question!
Wonder why he hasn't mentioned the Bulls at all? I mean Phil can't be that hard to get ahold of can he? And what about that other team that plays in LA....
Lots of good stuff in this interview. This one is really wise:
Here's one that epitomizes LGK:"Once you think you have all the answers, then you're an idiot. No man is a fool until he stops asking questions, and there was a load of questions I asked. I found what these men have done and found I'm a long way to go before I figure this out. I already filled a notebook."
"There is always one line that resonates, Pully's line is, 'Well, one thing you have to remember about this job is when you're a GM, you've got the one job everybody in the world thinks he can do.'
There's a big "UP YOURS" to everyone who ever made a "<insert GM name here> is out playing golf" joke.Originally Posted by Deal Lombardi

Thank you DL!
"My father-in-law told me this too, 'Whenever you start thinking you're smart, just remember that a GM is only as good as your players. Don't you ever think you're out there winning games.' It's about character, hard work, and it's about your players."
And thank you to RR for posting that as well
