In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Head Performance Coach at the Golden State Warriors, Carl Bergstrom. I have been wanting to get Carl on the podcast for some time. I have wanted to chat to him about his transition into the NBA having played and worked in soccer. There is so much to chat about, especially as I know very little about basketball but am fascinated by the sport. I have had a number of practitioners on who in the NBA (Ramsey Nijem Bill Burgos) and each has given a unique perspective on what it’s like to work in the environment.
In this episode we discussed…
- Who is Carl Bergstrom (background, education, and current role)
- The environment – what it’s really like?
- Pressure on players
- Players as brands
- Shift the perception of ‘ideal’
- Shift in mindset
- How practice changes
- NBA Schedule
- ‘Load management’
- Maximising potential
- Eccentrics & isometrics
- Regular stimulus
- Peripheral players
