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.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Founded in 1976, the National Basketball Coaches Association membership is a who's who in coaching: Every coach in the league is a member. Through the Celtics-Lakers rivalry in the 1980s, the 1992 Team USA Dream Team, and the unparalleled skill and marketing power of Michael Jordan through the 1990s, the National Basketball Association has become the world's most famous sports league over the past 25 years. Its coaches represent the top instructors and game technicians in the sport. They have mastered not only how to coach the world's top athletes but how to strategize and scheme against other world-class athletes and coaches as well.

Some stuff like the execution of a crossover-dribble, would clearly be easier to learn from a video, but if you puzzle over the descriptions a bit and slo-mo a few plays for them the explanations are adequate to get the idea across to a 10 year old. Also the book could probably use an expanded section on interpreting play diagrams (or a bit more discipline diagramming writing them) because while many where quite clear, there were definitely a few where I found myself scratching my head trying to guess the coaches intentions.
But if you work at it a bit, the info is there and I mean *LOTS* of info. From basics of shooting, dribbling and passing, to complex stuff like how to customize defensive switching strategies based on your opponents strengths. I have had coaches that talk about having a high IQ for your sport, and this book is all about that.
I am still supplementing this book with some SIMPLER books like "Bird on Basketball" (which is also great), and am also researching videos which are probably better for teaching basic physical skills. ...But compared to what else I have found, this book is the BIBLE.
