Why You Should Listen?
In this Jim Huber Podcast, you will learn the art of shooting with NBA shooting instructor Dave Love. While with the Phoenix Suns, Coach Love was able to increase players’ shooting percentages. These successes led him the opportunity to work with Grant Hill and DeShawn Stevenson, as well being hired by Oklahoma City Thunder as a shooting consultant.
In 2013, Coach Love was hired by the Cleveland Cavaliers to work with fellow Canadian Tristan Thompson. Thompson became the first player in NBA history to switch his dominant hand, and under Coach Love’s guidance increased his career high from the free throw line from 60% to 69%.
He is currently the Orlando Magic shooting coach. Coach Love has had a huge impact on Aaron Gordon, who has said, “Dave Love is a shooting guru…”
