PRACTICING WITH A PURPOSE

"Champions play as they practice. Create a consistency of excellence in all your habits." — Mike Krzyzewski



    Have you ever heard of that phrase, "Practice makes perfect?" I am sure many people have, especially if you are an athlete. But can you really ever be perfect in anything you do? We are all human beings therefore we will make mistakes no matter what the situation. But in saying that, I do believe this saying digs…

As coaches, we have to try to teach as well as possible. In my case, I think that shooting is also hard to teach, especially with players who have never played, or even worse, they have played but they haven’t been taught properly.…

What happened to the basics of man to man defense???

The more basketball I see, the more "frantic" it has become.  I see less fundamentals and more out of control play.  Way too much contact in the sport now.  Players get to the rim way too easy because players "over play" their man.  What happened to keeping the player in front---using words like contain and arms length apart or cushion.  Bring the mid range jumper back---the mid range and short jumper are a lot harder to make than a 3 pointer these days--it takes more touch.  I hope…
