While we all have different personalities off the court, it is important for YOU to be assertive on the basketball court. The game is played at a fast pace. The game is very physical. And if YOU are a competitor being challenged by other players in games is personal. YOU want to beat the other player, beat the other team and PERFORM for your team. The young ladies in this video are training with Danielle Gant (@gantsportsokc) in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Danielle was drafted by a WNBA team, played professionally around the world and played college basketball for Texas A&M University so she is definitely a student of the game. When you watch the drills on the @gantsportsokc page it is clear the focus is all about preparing the young players to PERFORM in games. PRACTICE is fast. PRACTICE is hard. And once the players have been taught a new move or drill and they taken the time to master those new moves, they will be expected to pick up the intensity of the workout. The young ladies in this video are grinding hard and moving fast. This will translate into their games when defenders and are trying to steal the ball and disrupt the offense. If YOU want to one day become an elite player it will take HARD WORK. That means YOU have to push yourself in PRACTICE so that YOU are prepared to face the challenges in your games. PRACTICE Works! Thanks @gantsportsokc for the videos. #improvepractice#basketballneverstops#ballislife#girlsbasketball#wnba#womensbasketball#ballhandling#pointguard#bball#aaubasketball#youthbasketball#basketballpractice#basketball#basketballplayer#basketballislife#basketballcoach#gantsportsokc#basketballdrills#basketballtraining#basketballtrainer
About 25 years ago, in the town of Tomball, Texas was a young boy abandoned by his father. This kid loved to play basketball and definitely had a talent. He had one goal on his mind; making it to the NBA.
Growing up in a small town, this young boy's mother kicked him out of the house by the age of 13 because she didn't "like the looks of him." His own MOTHER didn't believe in him.He was homeless and left to live on his own at 13 years old.
Probably grew up to be some loser right? Nope. He wasn't recruited in his high school years and spent his first year at Tyler Junior College. His dreams of the NBA looked dull to many, accept himself.He knew he would be great. After long months of tireless work he finally gained interest from Division 1 schools and was given a chance by none other than Marquette. He improved over the years and eventually entered the NBA draft where he was selected #30 by the Bulls.
He had finally reached his goal. The kid from Tomball is known today as a 3x All-Star, NBA Most Improved Player, Olympic Gold Medalist, and goes by the name of Jimmy Butler. Stop complaining about your situation. No excuses. Just work. #repgreatness
