ATTENTION, NBA COACHES!
NOW is a great time to get help for your problem shooters. Training camp is months away, so whether the player in question needs fine-tuning or a major makeover, this is the moment to make some changes and put them to the test.
I’m available for part-time or full-time duty. A three-day trial is more than enough time for you to determine whether I can be a big help to Ben Wallace, Shaq, Dwight Howard, Gerald Wallace, Tyson Chandler, Jason Maxiell, Andres Biedrins, Rajon Rondo or any of the others who struggle with their free throws and/or jumpshot. If a player struggles year after year, it’s not in his head. It’s in the way he shoots. The problem could be in his technique, timing or rhythm — or in all three. Progress begins when flaws are identified and then, one at a time, ironed out.
Check out the links to the right under the headings “Hot off the presses” and “Shooting analyses” to get a feel for my “Different strokes for different folks” philosophy. Links under the other headings show that I have a track record of successfully challenging conventional wisdom on very serious matters. I do the same on basketball, including the CW that 1,000 shots a day cures everything including the common cold. Those shots can just as easily ingrain the bad habits that are the cause of your career FT percentage languishing at 53 (Shaq) or 42 (Big Ben).
