AP Interview: Thibodeau on hoops, hope and balance in life

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The alarm rings at 4:30 a.m., but only for a split-second. Tom Thibodeau has been wide awake for the last eight minutes, waiting for the buzzer to go off.

He unplugs himself from the matrix, where he has spent the last four hours downloading video of Rick Carlisle's push offense, all 722 of Russell Westbrook's pick-and-rolls last season and diagrams of Gregg Popovich's plays after a timeout straight into his brain.

Or so goes the caricature of the NBA's ultimate grinder, a reputation that has morphed from reality to apocryphal over Thibodeau's three decades in the league. The snarling, growling, basketball savant so consumed by the game there seems to be little room for anything else in his life.
