Former NBA coach Eric Musselman is entering his first season as coach at the University of Arkansas, and it seems he has come up with a picture perfect way to have fun with recruits.
Or at least, Musselman begun to relive iconic scenes from the NBA in pictures, as you can see in the photos below, provided by Arkansas basketball.
You may know Musselman as the coach who led Nevada to the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA tournament in 2018. He spent four seasons with the Wolf Pack and they won at least 24 games each year, including a 29-5 finish last season.
Those who have followed the NBA may also know him from his stints with the Golden State Warriors (2002-04) and Sacramento Kings (2006-07).
And those going even further back then that may know Musselman as the son of the late Bill Musselman, the former coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers and first coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Bill Musselman was known as a basketball innovator … and Eric clearly is carrying on that legacy in his first season with the Razorbacks.
Along with Nevada, the Kings and the Warriors, Eric Musselman has been an assistant in the NBA and at the college level, as well as head coach of the Reno Bighorns and Los Angeles D-Fenders of the G League.
