This class has helped me improve my shooting and ball handling. It has taught me the basic fundamentals of the art of shooting as well as more complex drills. It has definitely had a big impact on my basketball skills

The kind of man you are is the kind of player you are. Thank you Stephan Curry.

Amazing! Steph has been an impact to my life and now I will try to better after these lessons . Wish that I can go to his game one day! Hard for a 16

Stephen Curry's Masterclass was the best so far I have seen!

Wow. Wow. Wow. For me, Stephen's guidance on shooting form as foundation is good, but already known and could be a little bit better. Shooting drills explained by him are exactly what i need to help me improve my game. But his ball handling. Seeing him dribble so extremely efficiently blew my mind away!!!!! It's insane. The foundations are extremely solid. On the surface, it doesnt seem like much but damn.. in reality, thise is truly a masterclass

I think the order of the bullets in the workbook is incorrect (Section labeled Training: Phase 3 (Cont.)) - I'm guessing it should read: 1. Warm-up and Stretching 2. Stationary ball-handling circuit (1st Rep) a. One-ball pound right: 30 seconds b. One-ball pound left: 30 seconds c. Crossover: 30 seconds d. Between the legs (alternating): 30 seconds e. Behind the back: 30 seconds 3. Form shooting Progression: 100 Total Shots 4. Stationary ball-handling circuit (2nd Rep) 5. Four-way form shooting: 25 total shots a. 1-2 Step (straight up and down): 5 Shots b. Toward the basket: 5 Shots c. Away from the basket: 5 shots d. Lateral left: 5 Shots e. Lateral right: 5 Shots 6. Stationary ball-handling circuit (3rd Rep).

I think that these tips are very good. They have helped me a lot in basketball. It takes one to know one😺

I found this to be much more useful and informative than the shots-based practice. Super!

After these 6 lessons, I've realized I've been playing basketball ALL WRONG my whole life. Loving the focus on fundamentals, but it's gonna take time and patience to break a 42-year habit.

Actually this lesson is no creative but very practical. I've heard all those drills all the time. However, Stephen did enlighten me on some tips, for instance, keep in shoot-ready stance when we're practicing the drills.
