I know how to. I’m the best player in the game. We’re all pretty skilled. And we have a lot of players. So we can coach them, because it’s not just one guy. Every team has a coach. We can coach anybody.
Do you think any of the coaches will be coaching under your banner next year?
I’m going to be very tough on them, very hard on them. I told them to make the right move if they’re going to come here and try to become the best player. And in this system, that’s the most you will ever see. And the way we play, I think we’ll be a pretty good team to win a lot of trophies.

But as a husband, I have also been deeply worried about the direction the Jewish community is taking — and my concern could be the first sign of what’s to come for American Jews in a post-Trump world.
The Jewish community’s response to Trump has reached a fever pitch since the election. Last week, when I was honored by the White House to address the National Jewish Democratic Council, a Jewish-American organization founded in 1944, I was asked to reflect on my life as a Jew in
