Heat assistant Keith Smart returns after rare skin cancer surgery

Heat assistant coach Keith Smart returns after rare Skin cancer surgery
Coach Keith Smart, he is a husband, father, all around great guy, and now we can call him a Cancer survivor.
Without question, Keith is one of my best friends in the coaching fraternity. he has had a great journey in the business. His journey had a brief pause with a recent scare with a very rare form of skin cancer,  one in one million people in the US are affected with this rare form of skin cancer.

Keith hit the SHOT to win the National Championship for the Bobby Knight led Hoosiers over the Cuse back in '87. he had a brief Professional playing career. Yet he has Head Coaching stints with NBA teams such as the Cav's , Warriors, Kings and now assistant with the Miami Heat.

Click the link to read the interview and video with the Sun Sentenial in Miami on his return this week to the Miami Heat bench prior to the Warriors game last night.

Please continue to send prayers and well wishes for this friend of mine. Keith is ever positive, always optimistic, he is led by his faith.
I continue to send prayers to Keith, His wife Carol and his boys, as they have handled this with class and dignity, just like the Heat organization.

God Speed my friend !
