What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

"Dave is one of the all-time great shooting coaches. I continue to be amazed at his ability not only to shoot so well but also to teach others to do the same."

Jim Calhoun--Former Head Men's Basketball Coach, University of Connecticut

“Dave is not only the best shooter in the universe, he is also the best shooting coach.”

George Karl

“I never miss an opportunity to work with Dave. He’s the best in the business.”

Kobe Bryant

“Dave has not only helped my shooting, but he improved my overall game. He has given me the confidence in all phases of my game.”

Ray Allen

"He's a great motivator, man, especially when you're out there shooting the basketball. He's very positive, always going to tell you about your mechanics and what you're doing wrong. So his main thing is just consistency, doing the same thing over and over again.”

Carmelo Anthony

    I think the book and DVD complement each other well. One without the
    other would not be enough. This is a great resource for coaches with
    lots of ideas for drills included in the DVD and outlined in more detail
    in the book. My 12 year old son believes he will use it during the
    season for practice. I don't buy many books because I work in a library
    but this is a great book to own because you can keep coming back to it
    for ideas.
