Coach Antonio is a players coach. He not only understands the game well, he understands his players and puts them in the best position to be successful. My one year playing for him, has been my favorite as a professional. He is a great offensive mind, while playing for him, our team was easily one of the best offensive teams in the league. Coach Antonio can take any team and put them in position.
Coach Antonio Pérez was the first professional coach I ever had. Being new to the professional game and FIBA, he did a fantastic job of teaching me the concepts and skills necessary to succeed. He used basketball to build our relationship and it became clear he cared about me as a person and wanted to see me do well. When I struggled as a player he encouraged me saying that I was doing the right things and working in the correct way. When I succeeded as a player, he was authentic in his happiness for me but also reminded me that I could reach another level. I trusted him because of the time he invested in me and the work we did. Coach Antonio showed a great balance of encouragement and discipline all while teaching his ideas about basketball. He understands that basketball is built around relationships and took the time to develop ours. I have a lot of respect for the person Coach Antonio is, the work he has done, and the discipline he has shown to improve himself every year. Even though I have not played for him in several years, I can still count on his support when I need it. That is a special quality to possess and not many people in this business actually have it. Without his help in developing my skills, as well as the guidance he provided off the court, I would not have been able to experience the level of success I have had as a professional basketball player.
Antonio was a great coach and mentor during my year with him. Always trying to help the team and individuals to be their best versions. Great on managing different people and try to reach the goals. All from individual talks and workouts to team chemistry. Good on details and got answer on all the tactics. But what I take most from him is the way he understood the player and how to got out the best out of them.
Coach Antonio Pérez is a Great coach with clear ideas and standards for his players. Has a lot of management tools to maintain the team in the best possible shape, prepare for the competition and get better. Hard working person who doesn’t mind spending a lot of extra time for players development and bring the best out of them. Can get his point across very clearly and communicate the objectives to his players and staff. Great person to be around and to learn from.
During my career I was fortunate with a lot lot of great coaches, so when I signed towards the end of my career in the Spanish 2nd division, I didn’t really know what to expect. To my surprise the transition was really smooth, mostly thanks to coach Antonio. From the coaching stand point Antonio kept the bar high, up to the point that he was not far away from some of the top coaches that I had the privilege to meet. I enjoyed our time together both on and off the court. I loved our style of play, I really admired Antonio’s game knowledge and even more his dedication to player development, that I consider a very important „duty“ for any team. We were able to build our relationship off the court as well. I am ready to recommend coach Antonio Perez any time, for his great basketball knowledge and passion for the game.
Coach Antonio is an awesome coach! I am very thankful to have had the pleasure of playing for him professionally in Spain. He helped me develop into a better player by putting him into positions to succeed and giving me an opportunity to work on my game. He does a great job of managing a team and keeping guys focused toward a goal. Offensively, he is brilliant as we had one of the most explosive offense teams in the league. I loved playing for him in the past and would love to play for him again in the future. Great coach who helped me transition well in a new country and new league. Also a great guy off the court, as I have kept in contact with him since playing for him.
