Klay’s Superhuman Night and A Surprising 19% NBA Study

There is no doubt that this article shows you how to dramatically improve your shooting drills and workouts.

It also helps you improve faster and play better during games.

And below, you see how these concepts align perfectly with Klay Thompson’s superhuman performance when he dropped 60 points in just 29 minutes.

The Pareto Principle

The more you study Don Kelbick’s Attack & Counter Skill Development System, the more you realize that it is perfectly aligned with the Pareto Principle.

What is the Pareto Principle...

It is also known as the 80–20 rule, and the law of the vital few and trivial many. It states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.

If this is true, you better spend as much time as possible focusing on the 20% (the vital few).

Well, this system does this for you. It focuses on the most important things that happen over and over and over.

How The Attack & Counter System Applies The Pareto Principle

As previously mentioned in this education series, Don Kelbick’s Attack & Counter Skill Development System accelerates the development of your basketball moves and skills, speeds up your decision-making, and improves your confidence and aggressiveness. (In case you missed the other articles, we discussed these things in detail in here, here, here, here, and here.)

In addition to all of that… Don makes you more efficient and effective with your drills, practices, and workouts. He does this by focusing on the most important things.

Here is a sample of his drill or workout progressions. Depending on your situation, you can use some of the progressions or all of them in a workout.

Corner To Wing Cut - Catch and Shoot
Corner To Wing Cut - 1 Dribble - Lay Up
Corner To Wing Cut - 1 Dribble - Jump Shot
Corner To Wing Cut - 2 Dribbles (Dribble Move) - Lay Up
Corner To Wing Cut - 2 Dribbles (Dribble Move) - Jump Shot

You can replace the corner to wing cut with any cut that occurs during a game; wing to corner, block to perimeter, half court to wing, etc.

But how does this apply the Pareto Principle? How is this effective? This NBA Study shows how...

An NBA study from 82games.com showed that only 19% of shots came after three or more dribbles… That means the majority of shots come with two or fewer dribbles.

Don’s workouts focus on the things that happen the most during a game… shots with 2 or fewer dribbles… That’s the Pareto Principle.

Additionally… look at the points per possession based on dribbles!

Zero Dribbles - 105.7 Points Per Possession
One Dribble - 96.7 Points Per Possession
Two Dribbles - 102.6 Points Per Possession
Three+ Dribbles - 93.4 Points Per Possession

So not only does Don’s workouts align perfectly with the Pareto Principle by focusing on things that happen most often...

They also steer you towards building playing habits that are the most effective and will lead to the most success… shots with 2 or fewer dribbles.

Klay Thompson Scores 60 Points On 11 Dribbles

Now back to Klay Thompson’s performance scored 60 points in just 29 minutes. Even more amazing, he only took 11 dribbles!

Why? For all of the reasons and stats mentioned above, you’re more efficient when you don’t dribble too much. And you don’t need to take a lot of dribbles to score.

Additionally, Thompson only held the ball for 1.5 seconds on each touch. From the previous articles, that probably sounds really similar to the principles of Mapping and Attack Immediately.
