"WHAT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE TODAY WILL SOON BECOME YOUR WARM-UP"
My name is Yakhouba Diawara and I currently reside in Marietta, GA with my family, which includes my two young daughters, who are both very active with all kinds of sports. I was born and raised in France and am fluent in English, French and Italian.
I played in the NBA for five years, overseas for over 13 years and I was also selected to play in the 2012 Olympic games for the French team. Additionally, I’ve participated in Prime Time, The Big 3 and was selected to play this year in the African NBA (BAL league). I also ran a basketball summer camp in France, where I was coaching and enjoyed working with underprivileged young adults.
I would love to be able to help the next generation by being a coach, bringing my vast knowledge and experience of the game to them. I believe that students must put education first, before they can become great athletes. Great students make the best athletes.
I have been fortunate enough to work with and be taught by some of the greatest coaches in my career including Paul Westphal, George Karl, Pat Riley, Eric Spoelstra and many more. I believe I can bring a lot of that experience to your program. I pride myself on teamwork, hard work and attention to detail. I have recently started working with the NBPA. I have been attending their meetings and coaching clinics.
