Interesting quick look at LeBron and the Cavs as they prepare for the next round of the playoffs. Great quotes from LeBron on focus and preparation.
I’ve always been a strong advocate of teaching the jump stop since it was taught to me my sophomore year of high school. Being a quick and small guard, it really help me play more under control in the paint and give a good strong effort to the rim. While it is important to learn different finishes, both 1 foot and 2 foot, it is very important for players to learn the jump stop to give them a variety of options. Here are some clips from the 2014-2015 season of our guys at Baruch and their different variations of the jump stop.
Some interesting quotes in here about how some view failure and how failure is determined individually.
Kevin Durant’s infamous ode to his mother during his MVP speech. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there today!
Just think about it.
I played 59 games over my two year career at The College Of Staten Island for legendary coach Tony Petosa. My first home game I scored ZERO points on 0-5 shooting in 32 minutes of playing time in a regular season win vs non conference opponent Rochester Institute of Technology. My last home game ever I scored 40 points to help our team advance into the sweet 16 for the first time in program history. Conventional wisdom would say I played “better”, maybe even a lot better, in the game where I scored 40 points. I’m here to tell you why I played just as well in the game in which I didn’t score.
Love behind the scenes stuff. Great look at Geno Auriemma and his staff preparing the now 4 time national champion UCONN Huskies for the beginning of the season. Big fan of how Geno and his staff interact and the standard they maintain for their program year in and year out.
Kevin Gates speaks about handling conflict, changing and being true to yourself. Awesome insight from someone who has overcome a lot to get to where he is.
