Get Higher With Avery
As teased here a while back, Dallas Mavs coach Avery Johnson spoke with Texas Monthly editor Evan Smith for this month's ish, online today as a preview piece courtesy, well, Evan Smith. Guess we somehow missed that Johnson had a book forthcoming in 12 days: It's titled Aspire Higher -- words to live by, twice a day. What's it about? "Aspire Higher is the essential game plan for reaching your goals. Johnson begins by outlining what it takes to get to the top: determination and discipline provide the foundation that allows you to make the right decisions, on the basketball court or in the boardroom." When I first read that, I thought it said "bedroom." --Robert Wilonsky
