This class gave me the blueprint I needed to structure my workouts and really begin to make tangible and visible change in my game. As a high school student who hasn't made the basketball team since freshmen year, I am on the journey to walk on to play for my college D2 basketball team. Wish me luck. The journey begins now.

My kids love this guy. They watched the entire thing with me.

Great for me because I never focused on mechanics and really only relied on instinct and the momentum of the game.

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

A clinical dismantling of every opponent Kid Curry... I love it! I remember when Walt Frazier used to say there's a second way to play; other than who's biggest, strongest, fastest... There's a cat like quickness and precision (like Bruce Lee or Jerry Rice in football) that makes the game a whole lot easier... or let's say efficient. Next level stuff.

Love the film review sessions. Would like to see even more of them as they clearly demonstrate in real time the application of the principles taught. I learn something every time Steph explains what he sees on the court and how he protects the ball.

I wonder when the NBA/NCAA/FIBA are going to remove the traveling violation of lifting the pivot foot before release of the first dribble. It is never enforced and even Steph commits that violation occasionally. http://videorulebook.nba.com/archive/travel-on-the-perimeter-lifts-pivot-foot-before-releasing-the-ball-2/
