Former NBA head coach and executive Randy Pfund recently visited the Boys & Girls Club of Carlsbad’s (BGCC) to play some ball with the Pacific Coast Hoops (PCH) youth basketball team. Randy spent two hours with the PCH players and coaches, both to assist in a one-hour skills workout and to share some of his knowledge from having worked with some of the top players in the history of basketball, from Magic Johnson to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Shaquille O’Neal, James Worthy, Dwayne Wade, and more. After the workout, Randy expressed his admiration for the PCH players’ ability and attitude while also offering constructive criticism to help the players improve their game. “It was just amazing,” said nine-year-old Connor Stevens. “I can’t believe that he coached so many of my basketball heroes like Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and while we were practicing he actually said ‘good job’ to me twice!” PCH is a youth basketball program for grades three to eight presented by the BGCC.
