USA USA we are back!!!

Kobe is great down the stretch and D Wade lifted us in the first half. Lebron is a great leader. Coach K does a great job of leadership and motivation and the new title of his leadership book will be "How to lead the Best". Great Job by all the team and total team effort. A classy group who deserved to win the Gold. Jerry Colangelo did it the right way.

Shooting was also a Major Factor in the Celtic's Win

When Doc Rivers went to 5 shooters on the floor, that made it so tough on the Lakers. Garnett had single coverage in the post and Ray Allen and Paul Pierce were able to get to the hoop. Shooters are very overlooked in the game.

Summer Basketball is a Major Factor in the decline of Fundamentals

Summer is here, but I have major concerns for my favorite game:
1. More high school coaches and AAU coaches are concerned more about playing games and putting in their systems, then working on skills.

2. America has lack of shooters and shooters need time in the gym to shoot.

3. America has lack of Point Guards. So that tells me that Dena Evans Point Guard College and Dave Devenzio National Point Guard Camp does not get to work with our best prospects in the country, probably due to a kid's lack of time and funds.

4. All camps for the most part of been shorten recently due to cost.

5. Shooting, Passing, Dribbling, and Footwork have taken a back seat during the summer months.

6. There is no Basketball hierarchy any more and what mean by that is younger players playing with older players.

7. Lack of Mental and Physical toughness in kids is frightening.

8. Hating to lose is something out of the past.
