Kyle Korver- Elite Teammate

Kyle Korver describing being invited to tryout with team USA- 

"I don’t consider myself an elite superstar player by any means. I’ve always tried to be an elite teammate. Someone you want. If you are going to build a team, you’d want me to be on it. That’s my biggest goal."

Jump Rope for Basketball

Here are some great demonstrations of jump rope exercises a player could use. If a player (especially a young post player) would develop a simple daily 5-10 minute jump rope routine, they would be surprised about how much their quickness and agility improved.

Great Ladder Agility Drills

There are a lot of good ladder agility drills- here are 13 favorites of Coach King...

Mark Cuban

  1. Happiness doesn’t have anything to do with money. “I was happy when I was poor. I am happy now that I am rich.”
  2. Treat people like winners if you want them to perform like winners.When he took over the Mavs they were the worst team in the NBA.  The very first thing he did was up grade their locker room and travel accommodations.
  3. Always be the most prepared person in the room. Knowledge is power. Mark relentless studies everything before he gets involved.
  4. If everyone is zigging, make sure you zag.  Mark doesn’t jump on bandwagons; he creates them.  He doesn’t like doing what others do; he likes carving his own path.
  5. Focus on the present. “Today is the youngest you will ever be for the rest of your life – so live like it!”
  6. Success is a matter of effort. If you want something bad enough, you work and work and work until you get it. No excuses.
  7. Get paid to learn.  Most of your education will come after you are done with school.  Work as many jobs and try as many things as you can – they are all learning experiences.
  8. Speak your mind. Mean what you say and say what you mean.
