With AAA Physical Therapy’s guest collaborator for health and wellness, we have Mr. William Eric Linzey who is a certified business coach! Just like we are your “coaches” for physical therapy, business owners need to have their business coach too in order to focus on what is important to them! The health of the business is definitely based on the health of the owners hence a business coach is crucial! For example, we discussed the importance of teamwork. As a PT practice, we do focus on teamwork within our organization and with this podcast, we definitely cherish other individuals and teams that we collaborate and work with in our community! However, the best teammates that we work with are our PT patients! Another point that we discussed is how business owners should focus on alignment and this is not far off from physical therapists who focus on proper alignment too! So listen in to this edition of this podcast housed here at Howard Community College’s Dragon Digital Radio!

Great Teamwork is Necessary for success in Sports and in a Rehabilitation Clinic! by Aaa Physical Therapy

Almost two years ago, we highlighted the great teamwork of the

San Antonio Spurs

displayed which eventually lead to them being NBA Champions. Now the Golden State Warriors have elevated their game that they are now the 2.0 Spurs.

With the “Me-First” mentality displayed by most athletes; much more by superstar athletes, it is refreshing to observe that a team is better than the composition of the same number of individual talents. Seeing Steph Curry cheer on his own teammate; Klay Thompson, to defeat him in

3-Point Contest during the NBA All-Star Game

was wonderful to witness! Guess what though, you will see this actually in every game that the Warriors play. Everyone is cheering for anyone who makes a great defensive or offensive play. They could not care less who is the best player that game, who creates headlines, who had great stats, and so on and so forth.

More than half of the starting 5 of the Warriors cheering on their team!

Every time a Warriors player is interviewed, they never fail to mention on how great their chemistry is, how great their camaraderie is, how great other players and coaches are, and how much they appreciate their fans! They hardly highlight themselves with these interviews.

Now, you can have great camaraderie and all but it is quite futile if you do not win. As you may already know, they are very close in matching or eclipsing the regular season wins done two decades ago by my beloved Chicago Bulls headed by Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman; and one of the great Head Coaches, Phil Jackson. Witnessing how well they play on both offense and defense, I would actually be proud if this Warriors team wins 72 or more this season. On offense, they share the ball so well by making extra passes and do not play “hero ball” because everyone is a hero. On defense; they communicate so well, hardly misses defensive rotations, and run back to defend whether it is a turnover by one of their teammates or a made basket.

As well as how they cheer one another, here at AAA Physical Therapy, we want to go and have this “team” mentality as we cheer on one another to make sure that our patients are very much well taken care of in a personalized manner. Also, our team also appreciates other extended team members such as Doctors, community members, and other local organizations.

Since our last blog, our team has grown and this is a great opportunity to emulate the Warriors and highlight our team members. To know more about our staff members please go to

Again, we highlight that WE is greater than me!
