TBW welcomed Tom Sterner

Tom Sterner, Toronto Raptors Assistant Coach, held two special training sessions for The Basketball Warehouse on June 9th, 2012.

 


Coach Sterner was hired by the Toronto Raptors for the 2011-2012 season. He’s one of the Raptors’ new assistants and is unlike many coaches they have seen before. He’s colorful, animated, entertaining to watch and listen to, and is a great teacher of the game.
 
Sterner has worked in coaching and scouting positions with Orlando, Golden State, and Dallas. He got an unofficial start with the Sixers in 1982-83, and has spent the bulk of his NBA time with the Magic. He spent the last two seasons with the Mavericks.  Coach Sterner helped the Magic reach the playoffs five times, including their run to the 1995 NBA Finals, and he also served as an assistant coach for the Eastern Conference during the 1995 NBA All-Star Game (Phoenix).
