Magic Gonna Lose Cause of Howard’s Free Throws

Posted by Barry

As much as I like Jameer Nelson, the Magic are gonna lose for 3rd yr. in a row due to Howard’s poor foul shooting. Watching him agonize at the line w/ 50% should make all players, teams or agents do something to not feel the same. Perhaps,The Foul Shot Doc?

Jameer leads Magic to win

Posted by Barry

As teacher, always great to see student succeed. “After my rookie season, Barry really helped me out. Not only did he work with me to correct some technical flaws in my shot, but he taught me some different ways to think about my free-throw shooting, jumper, and three-point shot. So much of the game depends […]

Live by The Jumper, Die by it. LA Loses

Posted by Barry

Old coaching adage, “live by the jumper, die by the jumper”. As Phoenix went to zone “D” yesterday, the Lakers began firing from the outside, instead of going inside, which is their strength for easy buckets or foul shots. Result 9-32 or 28% of 3 pointers. Game decided at foul line as Suns made 21 […]

NBA Tryouts and Visits

To all the college guys visiting NBA cities for workouts and interviews, it’s not too late to get together for shooting improvement. If you are visiting the Knicks, Nets or Sixers, I am in NJ. If you’d like The Foul Shot Doc to visit you at home or in some NBA city, that’s possible. I […]

Good Time in PA

Had a really good time Friday evening doing a shooting clinic for Morrisville HS boys. Players paid attention and asked excellent questions. Changed and/or improved shooting techniques significantly. Shout out to Coach Orick Smith and Dave Reither, really caring and good guys. Look to work w/ them again real soon.

Shooting Clinic Today in PA

Looking forward to doing shooting clinic tonight for high school kids in Morrrisville,PA. Always fun to get on the court and help players improve their games. Doesn’t matter whether it’s little kids or NBA guys, it’s also great to lace ’em up, hear b- balls bouncin’ and sneakers squeakin’.

NBA Playoff Schedule/Format

Posted by Barry

Really dislike playoff format. After every other day of games, the Lakers-Suns series doesn’t start for about a week. Hate 2-3-2 games in Finals.

Times Have Changed $$$

Not complainig but… in 1986 I coached Quinnipiac University to a 25-4 record, ranked 3rd or 4th in USA most of year and NCAA wins. I got $5,000 for the season and had to manage a hot dog joint to make ends meet. They recently signed coach to $1.5 million, 5 yr. deal.
