Part 2: Scoring Conquers All
I’ve always been a big proponent of training for scoring above everything.

Why?

Well, there are a few reasons.

The first reason is simple...

If you want to become a threat on the basketball court then you have to be able to score.

When you are a great scorer, you become that threat and you open up the entire game for you and your teammates.

Being able to score the ball consistently, efficiently and effectively allows you to effect the game at many different levels.

I’m not telling you to forget about defense or the many other skills needed to become an overall great player...

But scoring should come first.

Let me explain...

I want you to think about something really quick...

When is the last time a player got a lot of recognition, headlined your local newspaper or became an All-Star for something other than their scoring ability.

I was an assistant Varsity coach for 2 seasons after my professional career and I can assure you that it doesn’t happen often.

Think about the best guards in the NBA... 
Here are just a few of them...

But one thing stands out — they all can score the basketball at a high level.

The guys that you see and hear most about like Lebron James, Stephen Curry, Kyrie Irving, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant — the list goes on and on — are all top scorers on their teams and in the NBA.

Quick story for you before we move on...

Early in my high school career, I thought that in order to be a great point guard I had to be a pass first point guard.

I would only shoot the ball sometimes — if I was open — but my main goal was to get the ball to my teammates and help them score.

The opponents would know that I wasn’t a scorer so they would practically let me to shoot.

My confidence would quickly disappear more and more after every shot I missed.

Physically and mentally I wasn’t prepared to be a threat on the court.

Even though I averaged 8 assists and 5 rebounds and 3 steals a game...

Because I only averaged 6 points a game — I didn’t get any respect from anyone.

It wasn’t until our top two scorers left for college when Coach Joe Kania called me into his office and told me that SOMETHING NEEDED TO CHANGE.

He said that I needed to be more aggressive and look to score more. 

I had to become a threat if I wanted to have any future in basketball.

From that day on I changed the way I trained and the way I played.

My last two years in high school were MUCH different than the first two. 

I had transformed into a confident scoring machine.

Opponents began to FEAR and RESPECT me and I quickly became the biggest threat on the court in every game.

I ended up averaging over 22 points a game my senior season, went on to get a scholarship in college and played professionally in the Dominican Republic.

Now let’s talk about HOW, so that you can experience a similar transformation.
