Top 5 NBA Guards & Individual Development DVD

As the seasons begin to change amidst unprecedented political debate while entering a new era of financial irresponsibility, I for one am ready for some hoops. There is nothing better than watching this game on a cold December weekend protected by the warmth of the gym lights, awakened by the sound of that bouncing ball...In honor & anticipation of the upcoming season, I have chosen my Top 5 NBA Guards and included information on how to purchase a DVD compilation of over 300 MB on individual workouts & drills including breakdowns of the Memphis Dribble Drive and Herb Welling's Dribble Motion. Go here to purchase:

5. Deron Williams - I know this guy might not be on everyone's list with guys like Billups, Davis, Iverson, and McGrady left out, but I can't help it. I love his game. He is a smooth player with a remarkable court savvy and sense of how to play. On top of that he is a big, physical guard that can dominate a game with his outside touch or ability to create offense for his teammates. His leadership will determine if the Jazz are able to make another run to the Western Conference Finals (2007).

4. Steve Nash - What more can I say about the toughest guard in the league? He is the grittiest competitor since Michael Jordan in my opinion as evidenced by the way he handled the Spurs/Suns debacle two years ago in the playoffs. I don't want to reopen any wounds here, but most men would have lost their temper after any one of the cheap shots unhinged by the Spurs. Despite the trades and chemistry problems, Nash continues to lead one of the fastest scoring attacks in the league. Go here to learn about the Suns vaunted fast break attack:

3. Dwayne Wade - Despite injuries holding him back most of last season, DWade elevated his status to the second best player in the world during the Olympic games. At 6'4, 215-pounds, Wade is an exceptional athlete that relies on his spin move near the 15' marker as well as his Jordanesque ability to finish plays at the rim. His rugged, reckless style can cause injury as he has missed many games each season. However, I love watching this competitor play basketball and if he remains healthy, he will be a force to reckon with in the JV league Eastern Conference. If you interested in Marquettes complete individual workout, go here:

2. Chris Paul - At 23 he is the youngest guard on the list, but has the potential to be the best. After struggling through 64 games his second season, I was worried about his durability. However, after leading his team out of nowhere last season to the Western Conference semifinals before bowing out to the reliable Spurs, Paul has shown the ability to be his best when his best was needed. This competitive greatness is a trademark of the great ones and if Paul can remain healthy, he has a chance to be part of that elite group.

1. Kobe Bryant - This was the easiest position to choose in my opinion. Even Michael Jordan recently went on record saying Bryant is the best floor player of the era. Even more impressive is that he did it with a torn ligament in the pinky finger of his right hand, should have had surgery in February and probably won't have it done until the end of next season. Topping it off, he proved to be the clutch performer for the U.S. Olympic team on its way to a gold medal. There is no arguing this position.

Speaking of Michael is an old clip of him breaking a backboard...

Don Haskins & the NBA's Best Plays and Individual Workouts

Don Haskins was a legend in his own time for starting five black players while the head coach at Texas Western when they played Adolph Rupp's team for the 1966 NCAA National Championship. Disney made his story into the movie entitled Glory Road. I found this article and was amazed at the life of this man even after he had retired.

Team USA & Memphis Dribble Drive Offense

I have been gone to BASIC training for 10 weeks and I am back to a civilian lifestyle. It was a real learning experience and I made friends there, but the most important thing for me was volunteering to serve the country at a time of its greatest need. I missed my hoops and at least was able to see TEAM USA implementing the dribble drive offense. It was a beautiful to see our country back on top in basketball where it deserves to be. Also, what can be said about Michael Phelps that hasnt already been said? He is the all-time greatest...
