Pro-Style Drills: How to Train like a Pro

I mentioned pro-style drills or training like a pro in Fake Fundamentals: Volume 2. In the off-season, it seems every private trainer uses one of these catch phrases in their marketing, as parents are drawn to anything associated with an NBA player.

Well, see above. Uncontested, block practice shooting drills. Pre-determined 1v1 moves. Finishing against a pad. NBA drills.

Does anyone really believe that these types of drills are the reasons that NBA players are NBA players?

    It may not explain how these players are pros, but it sure helps explain why the Sacramento Kings are the Sacramento Kings.
