Controversial but promising coach Raymond Maha

Raymond Maha looks poised to bring new ideas, fresh training regime and a lot of passion to his role as an emerging basketball coach, but his perceived egocentric attitude could as well scatter his dreams.

A former player of Cantonment and an MVP in the maiden edition of the Indomie Community Dunks, the young prison officer is fast carving a nice of notoriety in the game which if not checked could crumble his ambitions of becoming one of the finest in the sport.

Maha’s career has not been without controversy right from his days as a player and now turned coach.

One could argue easily that his passion and drive could account for his perceived arrogance towards officials anytime the tables are turned against him in a match.

He displayed his usual controversial posture during Burma Camp’s humiliating defeat to eventual winners of the 2012 Indomie Community Dunks Kawanopado where he threatened to stop his players from continuing with play  due to what he claims was biased officiating.

His over-bearing ego angered many who were at the centre court of the El-Wak stadium – displaying sheer insolence to authority and bringing the hugely successful competition into a  momentarily standstill.

The commitment of the 21-year-old to inspire the younger ones cannot be questioned but his perceived negative attitude could be a minus for a promising career.

He guided the team to an impressive Greater Accra regional qualifiers where Burma Camp remained unbeaten but struggled to strike gold during the grand-finale- placing a disappointing third in the overall standings.

The former point guard for Cantonments loves to stir the pot whenever he can. No subject is a taboo for him to touch, especially if it brings him attention – simply put he is a lightning rod for controversy.

He is touted in many quarters a promising prospect but will need to work on few sucks to become a complete persona.

Life has taught many great basketball coaches all over the world that good things come with a hefty price.

The sport has given countless legendary trainers and personalities and yet sometimes it exactly these persons who seems to so often go off the boil, and get lost amidst a wave of controversies.

An avoidable controversy can make a coach or a player lose on his own making. – That is the lesson that the likes of Maha and up and coming trainers should take in good stride as guiding example.
