NOTHING NEW
If you know me, or have read my blog or even have talked to me about basketball, I
always preach the same thing. Some people are racking their brains trying to find new
methods, new shooting techniques, they publish books, videos, and DVD’…But like I
have been saying all along, success boils down to who is tougher, has more
energy, and buys into the team philosophy…In order to win, 9 out of 10 times you
have to out-hustle your opponent. You have to be tougher, play with more
energy, defend, and really care about the outcome. You have to keep the lazy
attitude home. You have to check your ego at the door…You can see how much
the Celtics and Cavaliers want to win; the reserves on the bench stand instead of
sitting. They are involved. Whenever I watch a game or attend one, I always keep an
eye on the reserves to see if they are involved in the game…If you don’t play hard,
don’t play with energy, hustle, defend, dive on the floor for loose balls, draw
charges, pull for your teammates and rebound, you’ll have a hard time being
successful.

IT’S ALL ABOUT DEFENSE!
Say all you want about guys scoring the ball. Talk about skill development, shooting
1,000 shots per day, working with trainers, and all that other stuff.
Defense is what it’s all about!
If you can defend, there’s a place for you.
You will be on the floor late in a close game, trust me.
Every coach wants a great defender to stop the opposing team’s best player.
It takes hard work; many don’t want to work. It takes courage, toughness and a desire!

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DREAM & A VISION
Forty-Niners coach Mike Singletary:
"When I look around the NFL, I'm amazed by how many people have a dream and how
few have a vision."
The difference, he said, is that a dream ends up being passive, accommodating
disappointment.
A vision, he said, "captures the imagination. A vision is something that consumes
you like a fire, won't let you eat, and won't let you sleep until that vision comes to
pass."

TEAM QUOTES
Great quote from Ron Artest the other day in the Houston paper:
"The only thing that defines individuals is how the team does."
A good quote from John Wooden that relates is,
"The star of the team is the team."
"When a team outgrows individual performance and learns team
confidence, excellence becomes a reality."

Postman Weight training
Before beginning this program, please make sure you have some weight lifting
experience. If you do not, learn the basic lifts and perform them for 4 weeks at light and
moderate weight. Always make sure you have a spotter and that you have someone to
coach your form. Form can make all the difference when it comes to strength. When
entering the weight room, you need to lose your ego. It does not matter what weight
other people see you lift. You are on a mission to get stronger. Lift appropriate weight
with perfect form, and you will be the strongest one on the basketball court. Controlling
the weight will help you to control your body, control the defender, and control the ball
while competing. Thus, when utilizing this weight program, follow the tempos provided
and keep your body strong and tight.
Monday: Lower Body Strength and Back
Warm-up – 5 minutes on treadmill, elliptical, or rowing
machine (moderate intensity).
Full Bodyweight Squats – 2 sets x 4 reps
This is a continuation of your warm-up. Go slow and
work on form.
Full Squats: 4 sets (increase set number as it becomes easier)
Set 1: 8 reps at 60% 1RM. [T: 2-0-x]
Set 2: 6 reps at 70% 1RM [T: 2-1-x]
Set 3: 4 reps at 80% 1RM [T: 2-1-x]
Set 4: 5 reps at 60% 1RM [T: 2-0-x]
Single-leg Calf Hops – 3 sets x 10 reps (each leg)
Jump as high as you can using only your calf muscles. As soon as you touch the
ground, immediately explode back up into the air.
Pull Ups – 3 sets to failure
Single Arm Bent Over Row – 3 sets x 6 reps
Back Extensions – 3 sets x 8 reps (hold a weight if exercise is too easy)
Flat Bar Curls – 3 sets x 8 reps
Use a regular flat bar for double arm curls. Use moderate weight (75%).
Notes: Make sure to start hydrating as soon as possible. After the workout have a
protein/carb. supplement that consists of approximately 75g carbohydrate and 30g
whey protein. Take a hot 5-minute shower, finishing with 1 minute of cold water. Stretch
for 10 minutes, 30 minutes after your workout. After showering and stretching, if
possible, take a 20-30 minute nap. This will help with recovery as well as strength gains.
[T: 2-0-x] indicates a tempo is being used. 2 is seconds lowered, 0 is seconds held at
the bottom, and x means you explode and move the weight as fast as you can while
maintaining good form.
1RM stands for your 1 rep maximum. This is the weight you can do for 1 rep and 1 rep
only.
Tuesday: Chest and Shoulders
Warm up: 5 minutes on treadmill, rowing machine, or elliptical. Follow with 2 sets of 10
arm circles in each direction.
Bench Press – 5 sets
Set 1: 8 reps (30%)
Set 2: 6 reps (65%)
Set 3: 6 reps (75%)
Set 4: 3 reps (90%)
Set 5: 3 reps (90%)
--
Rest 2 minutes between sets. The tempo on bench
should be 3-0-2.
Incline Dumbbell Bench – 3 sets
Set 1: 8 reps (80%)

Set 3: 10 reps (70%)
Rest 2 minutes between sets. The tempo on
dumbbell bench should be 3-1-2 .
Dumbbell Shoulder Press – 3 sets x 6 reps
Rest 1-2 minutes in between sets. The tempo on
shoulder press should be 2-1-1. Use moderate weight (75%).
Lateral Raises – 2 sets x 8 reps.
Go slow and keep your body steady. Do not swing or jerk the weight up. It is hard on
your shoulders and not as effective.
Cool down: 3 minutes jogging followed by stretching or 5 minutes working on post
moves.
Notes: Follow the same post-workout routine as Monday.
Wednesday: Quickness and Core
Warm up: 3-4 minutes jogging
Form Running:
High Knees – 20 yards x 2
Run at a relatively slow pace and raise your knees as high as possible in each stride
like you are trying to knee yourself in the chest.
Bounding – 20 yards x 2
This exercise is best described as exaggerated running. Try to make each stride as long
as possible. Each time you touch the ground use your legs muscles to drive you farther
and farther. Exaggerate your arm swings.
Sprints:
10 yards x 6 (Focus on the quick start, this sprint won't last long)
15 yards x 4 (Focus on the quick start. Continue accelerating through the finish line)
25 Yards x 3Standing Long Jumps – 2 sets x 4 reps
Try to jump as far as you can and stick the landing.
Reactive Long Jumps – 3 sets x 4 reps (Alternate Directions)
Long jump diagonally at a 45 degree angle. - Immediately upon impact, jump back
straight.
Jump rope – 4 sets x 30 seconds
*Do all movements as quick and as explosively as
possible. This will teach your motor units
to fire in this manner, making you faster*
Core:
Superset 1 – 2 sets [Rest 1.5 minutes between sets]
Hanging Knee Raises – 7 reps or max
If you can't do 7 a set, go to failure. Make sure you
lower your legs slowly on this to work the
eccentric contraction. Tempo: 1-1-3
Back Extension – 8 reps
Superset 2 – 2 sets [Rest 2 minutes between sets]
Swiss Ball Stabilization –10 reps
Sit on a Swiss ball and lean back slightly. Put your hands over your head. Alternating
arms, move one out slowly until it is parallel to the ground. This will throw your center of
gravity off, forcing your abs to stabilize. Keep your abs tight; they will be contracting
isometrically except for their stabilizing action. If this is easy for you, grab some light
dumbbells (5-10lbs) and the difficulty will become evident.
Swiss Ball Curl ups –10 reps
Crunches on a Swiss ball will force you to stabilize. Stretch over the back of the ball
(elongating your abs) and contract them to pull yourself up. Squeeze at the top of each
rep.
Notes: Implement the core workout into other workouts. Do not just do it on
Wednesday. Adding one or more of the exercises into each workout will build valuable
core strength for controlling the paint.
Follow the same post-workout routine as Monday.

Horns – Flare to Diagonal Back Screen:
In this set, the point guard enters to O5, cuts off O4’s flare screen and receives a pass
on the other side of the court. At the same time O2 cuts into the lane and O3 moves
slightly inside the 3 pt. arc.
O2 sets a back screen for O5, looking for a pass from O1 for a lay-up. O5 could go
over top of the screen or under the screen. If O5 does not receive the pass in the lane
he/she steps outside the key. O1 will then reverse the ball to O4 who has stepped out
high. O3 begins to move towards the lane.
O2 breaks out hard to the wing and receives a pass from O4. O3 sets a cross screen
for O5 and O4 sets a down screen for O3.

Pillow Test
No matter what you do today, or what you don't do, there is only one question you need
to ask yourself when you put your head on your pillow. After reflecting on the days
events and things you needed to do, when your head hits the pillow at night are you
going to say,
I'm glad I did?
Or.
I wish I had?

The "See" and "Listen" of Concentration
To me, concentration is basketball in a nutshell. Concentration leads to anticipation,
which leads to recognition, which leads to reaction, which leads to execution.
The concentration I'm talking about involves four key words.
The first two are "look" and "see." Everybody who plays basketball looks, but very few players
see. Very few players train themselves to use their eyes. Not everybody has the same shooting
ability as everybody else, nor the same size, nor the same quickness.
But each person who's playing this game can develop the ability to see what's
happening on the court -- see the open man, see where to take the ball, see the guy who's
being defended, see who's open on the break.
"Hear" and "listen" are the next two words. Most people only hear. The key is listening to
what you're being told, what's being said, what is expected of you in your role as
part of any team.
A basketball player who learns to see and listen has improved tremendously without doing a
single thing involving physical skills. Once learned, seeing and listening are valuable traits for
anyone doing any thing.
-- Coach Bob Knight
-- Shared by Eric Musselman, from his blog, Basketball Notebook
I have heard Coach Knight talk about “look and see” and “hear and listen” at least 10
times at different coaching clinics. It was certainly true in the 1970’s and 80’s and is
also very true today.

STANCE
Ironically, the genesis point of teaching basketball begins without the ball itself. Regardless
of what phase of the game you want to work on, whether it is offense or defense, dribbling
or passing, shooting or rebounding, it all starts with stance and footwork. We refer to this
as a “basketball stance.” It’s not just a defensive stance. Good body positioning will help
us
in
every
facet
of
the
game.
There are three keys to a good basketball stance. First, we want the proper body
position. Second, we want to evenly distribute our weight in order to have good
balance. Finally, we want to move in our stance in such a way that allows control. The
combination of position, balance and control gives us maximum speed, quickness
and agility. It allows a player to explode into a cut quicker. It enables a shooter to get the
shot off in a timely fashion. It is a “jump start” for the defensive player. It will positively affect
every
fundamental
that
we
want
to
execute.
We are interested in a stance that is both low and wide. The knees should be bent with
the feet a little wider than the shoulders. The bend of the knees should put us in a near
“sitting” position. We want the head up and positioned directly above the feet. We want
our weight sitting on the balls of the feet with a slightly forward lean. (Fig 4-1) photo
While most players do a good job of assuming a stance at the beginning of the possession,
only a few are disciplined enough to stay in their stance the entire time. Staying in a
stance and mastering the proper footwork can help any player take their game to the
next level. Regardless of size or speed, you will instantly become a better basketball player
by
maintaining
a
good
basketball
stance.
Proper stance and footwork will also make you a quicker basketball player. It is
common for defensive players to rise up out of their stance when their assignment doesn’t
have the basketball. Should the ball be skipped to their defensive assignment, the first thing
the defensive player has to do is get into her stance. The instant it takes to get in a stance
could be the difference in getting beat off the dribble in a closeout situation or stopping the
drive.
The same can be said of a shooter who is not in a stance. A player has a better chance of
getting the shot off if he receives the ball in a stance, with the feet and hands prepared to
shoot. A player not in a stance may lose the window of opportunity to get the shot off
because once he catches the ball; he must first get in a stance before thinking about
shooting.
Even with all the importance of being in a proper stance, it is one of the most difficult things
for players to master on a consistent basis. As a coach, you must constantly stress to
your players, both individually and collectively as a unit that they must remain in
their stance. While there are several drills to work on stance and footwork, it is imperative
that a coach is constantly looking to correct poor stance even in whole method work.

DISCIPLINE AND LOYALTY
"We live in a world where these two great words—discipline
and loyalty—are becoming meaningless. Does this mean that
they are worthless? On the contrary, they are becoming priceless
qualities because they are so hard to develop in the first place.
And should you be one of the fortunate few who, by God's grace,
has caught the vision, your battle has just begun, because the
greatest battle is to keep what you've learned through these two
priceless qualities. Discipline is that great quality few people
use that enables them to be constructively busy all the time.
Even in discouragement and defeat, discipline will rescue
you and usher you to a new place to keep constructively
busy while you forget about doubt, worry and self-pity. Oh,
that more in this day would realize the absolute necessity of
discipline and the degree of growth and happiness to be attained
from it. Most people think that loyalty is to a thing or to a
person when actually it is really to one's own self. Some think
that it is to a goal or an objective, but again it is to one's own
convictions. If loyalty has to be earned, then it is deserved and is
hardy, more than devoted emotion based on a temporary feeling.
No, loyalty is the character of a person who has given
himself the task before him and he will always realize that out
of a loyal heart will spring all the other virtues that make life
one of depth and growth.

One thing that both players and coaches must work through are mistakes. This includes
areas in both practice and games. The role of the coach is to be able to handle his
mistakes as well as those of his team. It is an ongoing process because the one
common denominator from coaches that I think are truly special is that they realize the
importance of PROCESS OVER PRODUCT. We will delve into this in later blog but it is
the journey and not the destination. Here is some advice that Coach has passed down
to many of us in regard to mistakes.
MISTAKES...
....RECOGNIZE
...ADMIT
...LEARN
...FORGET

around and make it in a game, it is your fault.

RESPECT
Re-spect (ri-spekt’) Hold sacred - To regard as important - Pay attention to. A just regard
for and appreciation of worth - Honor and esteem - Hold serious compliance for an
observance - Rendering of honor.
RESPECT for the GAME
RESPECT for your TEAMMATES
RESPECT for your PROGRAM
RESPECT for YOURSELF
Coach also speaks to the point that in practice you can't "let anything slide by," but that
in games you must learn to "let some things slide by."
In other words, there is a lot more teaching going on in practice where games are
grounds for coaching and managing.

FOUR TYPES OF PEOPLE
When it comes to commitment, there are really only four types of people.
COP-OUTS: People who have no goals and do not commit.
HOLDOUTS: People who don’t know if they can reach their goals, so they’re afraid to
commit.
DROPOUTS: People who start toward a goal but quit when the going gets tough.
ALL-OUTS: People who set goals, commit to them, and pay the price to reach them.

1-3-1 Zone Defense Extended
Ed DeChellis, Penn State
The extended 1-3-1 burns prep time for the other
team, makes an athletic team less athletic,
changes tempo quickly, and can neutralize a good
post player since most teams use a 2-1-2, getting
him away from the basket. It is high-risk, highreward, can't be used for 40 minutes, rebounding
is a problem (long shots mean long rebounds), and
gives up corner jumpers.
X2 is crafty, athletic, and can finish at the other
end. He picks up the ball at half court, pushes it to
one side, will spin off and go under any ball screen.
X3 is a 3-man (long), covering wing to block. X4 is
the best rebounder, most teams are right-handed.
Wings X3 and X4 are on a string. In transition, X3
and X4 must get wide to prevent passes up the
sideline, X2 sprints to half court and looks for the
ball. X5 is the linebacker of the defense, able to
stop penetration. He has his toes on the arc, but
will drop down a step or two if there are two lowpost attackers, and there should be heat on the
ball (cover two high posts with X5 and a wing). X1
is probably the smallest defender, a point-guard
type, athletic and fast to cover corner to corner,
and a communicator because all the action is in
front of him. He is always ball side.
--
There is always ball pressure when the ball
handler has his dribble; if he picks it up, get back
in the passing lane. Apply fake pressure, make
teams feel like they are going to be trapped.
Usually front the post unless you want the ball in
there.
With the ball on the wing, X4 covers the weak
side block and has his ball side (left) foot up in a
boxer stance to see attackers on the weak side
with peripheral vision. X5 keeps the ball out of the
high post, but if there is no attacking high post, he
can drop back a step or two to help the point guard
on the low post. Never allow a direct pass, stay
between the ball and the next attacker, hands up to
force a pass overhead. Defenders have to have
"bounce", they can't play flat-footed. Sprint when
the ball is in the air.
On a pass to the corner, X5 sprints down to cover
the ball side block and can't let the ball go into the
post. X3 faces the ball between the ball and the
next offensive player, does not allow a direct pass
back out (if there is a pass to 1, X3 pushes the ball
away from the scoring area, then retreats). X4
reads the passer and looks to steal a skip pass.
If 5 up screens X5 coming down on a pass to the
corner and 4 comes across looking for a pass, X4
has to come with him.
Trapping the corner, X4 takes away the high
post, X2 takes away a pass to 1. They don't trap on
the wing.
On ball reversal, wing X4 comes out wide, no
direct pass to the corner, pushes the ball out.
Against an overload, X3 can't pressure the ball,
X2 does. X3 plays in front of 2, he can't let the ball
get there. X1 communicates this.
