"The gift, talent or ability God gave you is your key to success. He did not give it to you to waste but to be poured out, used and invested."
USBasket Point Guard of the Decade, Majic Dorsey : My Relationship with Coach
Garrett is like a father-son relationship. Not only with me, but he is like that with each of his players. That is what I like most about him. He is tough, he is nice, and he can get mean when he
needs to be to make you better. He is one of the best coaches I have ever played for. I have played for him in four different seasons in my career. My rookie season in 2005 he and Orlando Magic NBA
Head Advance Scout Harold Ellis were a big reason I was a Top 60 Player among the NBA Pre-Draft Camp Invitees. I won two Championships, and 3 MVP Awards with Coach Garrett as my Coach. In 2006 he
coached me overseas in Mexico. I lead the LNBP in points with an average of 32.9ppg and was drafted to the NBA D-League. Then he coached me again in 2007 for Mayas USA and we won the Championship and
I was named MVP and leading scorer of the league with an average of 30.3ppg. The way he coaches and reaches out to me on and off the court is amazing. He is a teacher of the game along with being a
former player. So, with the knowledge he has I have always succeeded on the court.
Learning from coach Garrett's pro knowledge is the best advice I can give. Good luck!
