ABOUT Hoops consultant
As basketball players must have both offensive and defensive skills to be successful, they also must have both physical and mental skills. Before a player’s game can improve, they must first understand how that improvement is supposed to happen. Basketball is no different than any other skill, athletic or otherwise, in that experience and repetition are the best teachers. Every possession, (and every shot, dribble, pass, defensive rotation, close out, box out, etc.) is a repetition that should be stored in to memory and learned from, be it good or bad. Whether a team is hoping to improve their collective offensive and defensive abilities or an individual player is aiming to better understand their strengths and weaknesses, a thorough film session is critical.
