Thibodeau: Championship Standards are Key
‘‘Well, it depends on what your standards are,’’ (Coach Tom Thibodeau) he said. ‘‘On the first day of camp, if you went to all 30 teams, everyone would say, ‘Yeah, we want to win a championship.’ Very few teams are willing to make that commitment over a long period of time in putting the necessary work into it each and every day. It’s easy to say it; it’s harder to do it.
‘‘I measure everything on whether it’s being done at a championship level,’’ Thibodeau said. ‘‘Whether it’s your preparation, how you practice, how you conduct yourself in the weight room, how you conduct yourself in a film session, how you conduct yourself on the bus. There’s a lot that goes into winning, so you’ve got to be willing to pay the price.’’
