Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the country, and continues to grow globally. Historically, the US national team has dominated, however in the past 15 years, countries like Spain, Greece and China have improved dramatically. To be the best at basketball, players need to have great athleticism, technique, and knowledge of the game. Some of the best current NBA players have improved their technique and basketball IQ by working with high skilled trainers.
Some of the best shooters of all time, such as Ray Allen, Reggie Miller and Larry Bird, worked with shooting coaches throughout their careers to improve their form. All of them spent hundreds of hours in the gym with their coaches taking thousands of shots until they had their form down, while working to develop their off-hand, their ball-handling, finishing moves, post moves, and overall basketball conditioning to say in game shape. The best players -- such as Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitski and Stephen Curry -- continue training with their coaches every off-season, regardless of their already immense talent and demonstrated success.
