Students give MasterClass an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars.

Really insightful in the world of b-ball, no videos go into depth as much

I am enjoying the class so far. I just started but I know the rest will be even better!

This has been one of my best resources for basketball and I don't even have to pay for every lesson! it is great in every way

Thank you for putting this Masterclass together Steph. You were the one who got me into basketball and are such an inspiration in more ways than just being on the court. I can already see improvements in my game and I can't thank you enough. Love your work and all the best for the next season.

I really like how Steph breaks down each film and notices small details. He is also looking for his team mates in every play instead of looking for a shot for himself at all times. He is humble and generous with the ball.

hi, what i realize is that its easy to say , but from the proof of play and action, i can say it was done. well done,i think i learnt something

For some reason, every time I get double or triple teamed, I always hesitate for a second. If I shoot, I usually get blocked. If I drive, I mess up. If I pass, the defender usually steals the ball.

I get a little afraid when the big guy comes at the person I am screening for and sometime I lean in and forget to protect myself, then get confused as to what to do next. My dad says to keep moving towards the basket. So now I understand to wait until the opponent clears before I make my next move but the guys I play with just run over you or push you out the way. Dad says we are just kids and need to understand and practice as best we can, but screening is hard at 9yr old. And I am clearer now on what to do, thank you.

if coming to screen and I see my screeners defender popping at the side I want to come off of could I do a cross over and try to initiate contact with the defender who was just screened or should I just dribble out and reset play

It would be interesting to see film from different years on how teams are adjusting. Things like ice and how more nba defences are trying to switch as much as they can.
