Time Brings Change....NBA brings opportunity! - Oct 16, 2012

Corey Belser
Without a doubt, time brings change, and as we evolve the world around us evolves. In the world of basketball and sports, one could say your either getting better and evolving or getting worse. Worse because someone else is out there getting better, evolving! For the past five months, I have been evolving, trying to figure out what is next for me in this ever changing world! Wise men, we often read about in books and see in movies always seem to have the perfect metaphor's for life. One's like; "life is like a game of chess." Alwasys be two steps ahead. You have to plan, and always be ready to make your next move, just like chess! For me right now, this couldn't be more of a reality, as I am now making the transition from playing overseas for the last seven years into being an NBA coach.

Just four months ago, I was celebrating winning a championship with my teammates in France. Not looking towards the future at the time, but knowing I would have the possibility of playing another season in Europe, for more money and with a better club. It seemed like the obvious choice. But, like most things in life, things never turn out how you would expect them to. Instead of playing another season, I decided to get started on a coaching career. So, as I currently sit at my desk, here in Cleveland and think about this next journey and how I and the world around me will evolve. I have mixed emotions, knowing that I can still play at a high level. It makes it even worse competing with our guys in open gyms and in drills. I feel my game is at it's best right now, when you play with the best players in the world, your going to get better. The hardest part is when people ask why I stopped, or when my parents tease me about maybe getting the chance to play in a game. They actually probably are 100% serious. I tell my parents I could get a easy 10ppg 5rpg still, and we laugh but in the end. I tell myself time brings change, and nothing lasts forever, in sports and in life.

I know my transition from playing to working with the Cleveland Cavaliers won't be easy, but when has something you want in life come easy? Just being here in Cleveland has been a blessing, and even though I do miss playing. I can still get my fix by competing with our guys. It's a blessing because I get the opportunity to learn from a great young coaching staff, lead by three time NBA champion Coach Byron Scott . The basketball facility's are some of the best in NBA and world. The owner Dan Gilbert and our staff are amazing, and most importantly is the fan's! We have the most loyal and supportive fans in the NBA. As I make the transition, and adapt I encourage you as well start to plan your next move, and remember nothing last forever!
