Why You Should Listen?
There has never been a shooter as good as Steph Curry. Period. He’s so good, he has literally changed the way the game is being played and the way offenses are being structured. In this podcast we look at the rituals, techniques and mentality that go into becoming a truly world class shooter. In my experience coaching great shooters like Marvin Clark (Michigan State), Michael Porter Jr (MOKAN) and Ben Richardson (Loyola) I have seen the repetition, dedication and the mentality that elite shooters possess, In this trip into the shooting lab we break down the elements and conditions necessary to create, “the Next Steph Curry!”
What people don’t see is the time that Steph spent at a young age working on developing his shooting mechanics the right way. His dad helped him realize that it only takes between 100 to 300 repetitions to teach a new movement. They also understood that is takes 2,000 to 3,000 repetitions to re-teach a movement that was taught incorrectly.
I can’t tell you how many players I see at the high school level with NO chance to be a great shooter because their shooting form has serious flaws. These flaws that have been there for many years are VERY difficult to correct. 9 out of 10 players don’t have the time, confidence or will-power to break their bad habits.
As in life, you must crawl before you walk, walk before you run, to many people just want to run, or grab a ball and shoot. IT SIMPLY DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY. Not enough people teach proper shooting mechanics. Don’t take for granted that a player knows what you know.
Our hope is this podcast will give coaches, parents and players the tools to develop a successful shooting plan to follow.
