NBA Coaches Playbook: Techniques, Tactics, and Teaching Points Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Phoenix Suns' Steve Nash shines in running the break, but how do his teammates know where to go to get open to receive his passes? Orlando's Dwight Howard is a tremendous talent in the post, but how has he improved and added new dimensions to his game? And how is it that Utah's Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer run the screen-and-roll as smoothly as Jazz legends John Stockton and Karl Malone did years before?

Coaching. Yes, even in a league loaded with superior athletic talent, the teaching, tactical maneuvers, and strategies provided by NBA coaches are second to none. And as younger, sometimes less mature and less experienced players from all over the world have entered the league, those coaching skills are more diverse and better honed than ever before.

Now NBA Coaches Playbook takes you into the practice sessions and sideline huddles with detailed Xs and Os and more from the game's best at maximizing performance on the court. Let the likes of Phil Jackson, Mike D'Antoni, Avery Johnson, Stan Van Gundy, George Karl, Eddie Jordan, Mike Dunleavy, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and many other head and assistant coaches provide you with new insights to benefit your own team and individual players.

Synopsis:

At a time when more high school and college coaches and players are studying the pro game to get an edge, top coaches from the National Basketball Association have assembled their knowledge in one authoritative coaching manual. NBA Coaches Playbook provides a collection of proven methods and strategies for maximizing player and team performance. Many top current college coaches, such as Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, Louisville's Rick Pitino, and Auburn's Nell Fortner, attest to the benefits gleaned from the pro level. And now that information is available at your fingertips - be it from Phoenix Suns coach Mike D'Antoni on the fast break, Phil Jackson and Tex Winter on the triangle offense, or Pete Carril and Eddie Jordan on the Princeton Offense. In all, 28 successful coaches with more than 750 years of coaching experience all over the world share their wisdom on topics for which they are considered the experts.
