Former Indian Men's Team Coach Scott Flemming reflects on his time in India
Arguably, the greatest coach in Indian basketball history, Scott Flemming left behind a legacy that was unparalleled. During his two-and-a-half-year coaching tenure in India, Coach Flemming brought about tremendous improvement in the Indian Men's Team players and the team's style of play. He was the catalyst for India's historic victory over China in the 5th FIBA Asia Cup and our gold medal performance in the 3rd Lusofonia games, where we defeated Angola in the final.
This interview was recorded during Coach Flemming's tenure in India, prior to his resignation. Team Ekalavyas' Abhinav Jerath sat down with the former head coach to record his reflections on his time in India.
The following are a few pictures captured during Coach Flemming's time in India.
