Default Re: Basketball coaching discussion

As far as individual skill development and helping players translate all that practice time to real game situations I've really started to get into Taylor Allan's stuff at Basketball Renegades. I love his ideas, for individual development, of micro- and hybrid-drills.

A lot of coaches still preach about being in the gym for hours and hours, putting up 500 shots. Personally, I think it's more about efficiency, game-intensity, and game applicable practice. I don't think, but I may change this opinion as I test out different workouts, that a player needs to be on the hardwood for more than 1.5-2.5 hours a day if they come with a plan and are going at game speed for those 1.5-2.5 hours.
