Great shooters like Ray Allen and Kobe Bryant are providing a must-watch NBA Finals series as they show off theiroffensive games to give their teams another NBA crown.

I was given this book “The Go Giver” by a mentor of mine, and the powerful thoughts shared in the book are now a part of my every-day life (along with the sequel, “The Go Giver Sells More”). While the book does not offer great basketball drills or agility exercises (because that’s the message), I found immediate correlations between a Go Giver and the type of leaders we are trying to teach, build, and mold at Point Guard College. Here is a brief summary of the book and its correlation to being a true point guard and leader – both on and off the court.
If you’re running a basketball camp or conducting a basketball clinic for basketball players or coaches anytime soon, you’re going to have one big problem on your hands.

I recently spent the day at the Psychology of Coaching Teams Conference in Boston, MA. It’s an all day event for coaches of any sport and it features some great speakers with vast experiences. I am committed to a life of education that is fueled by my insatiable hunger for growth. I find myself growing on a daily basis, but it’s events like these that really fuel my fire.
