Didja catch this: Millionaire coach Jim Justice boosts prep girls hoops team
One day last week, Jim Justice canceled practice for his Greenbrier East High School girls basketball team so the players could come to his home and bake cookies.
Justice has coached basketball "forever," he says. In 25 years, he's coached more than 1,000 games — from AAU teams to the Greenbrier East team, which he took over 10 years ago.

"There are three things I can do," he says. "I can make a business deal; I can shoot a shotgun; and I can coach a basketball team."
So... can you run the WNBA while you coach a franchise?
