More About Coach Darius

Worked with a former NBA player and coach at his basketball camps for kids and teens, and also training sessions for adults leagues. We held shooting clinics for all ages, teaching them the 3 F's of shooting (Focus, Foundation, Form and Follow through). I have been coaching (Mostly private) for about 7 years.

The NBA player/coach was former teammate of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen during their first 3 peat championship run during 1990-1992 seasons. And he also was assistance to Phil Jackson and coached Kobe Bryant during the Lakers last championship run in 2007-2010 seasons.

I was recruited by the Army for college and made UNLV team but could not partake due to my mother's illness and later death.
I had a brief time in the NBA Development League, now the G League and CBA. ( My time was brief because I do not like professional sports leagues, though I love playing basketball, the business of sports is not for me).The business of pro Sports take the fun out the game.

Client Reviews

Coach Darius was able to make accurate assessments of my son's needs on the court. Continued training as a Center, agility on the court, importance of making the free throws and running laps was the message conveyed. Wearing the right athletic basketball shoes can be key to having the footwork needed to perform on the court as well as the mindset to go to the next level. Thanks Coach Darius! We are looking forward to great things for Lyle with your continued training and experience

Coach Darius is a great coach. He took the time to evaluate where my daughter weakness and strength were. He's very patient and makes learning the game fun. My daughter enjoyed working with him and can't wait for her next session.
