Posted by Barry

I will be a guest today on voiceamerica.com on Ray Ellis’ sports talk show. I will be on w/ several pro athletes to discuss pressures of Game 7 for the Lakers/Celtics. Feel free to listen and give feedback.

Lakers or Celtics?

Who do you like to win tonight and why? Not necessarily who you are rooting for.

Do You Play Rondo at End of Game?

Posted by Barry

f you are Doc Rivers do you bench your star pt. guard at the end of game 7 vs. Lakers. Shooting 25% in the finals is piitiful. A free throw shot can make or break a team…and win or lose a game. Even the best players can be poor foul shooters. But can you as […]

Big Game Tonight in LA

Posted by Barry

So.. who’s gonna show up tonight? For LA, will Kobe try to do it himself? Will LA use the triangle and/or work it down low to Bynum and Gasol? Will Bynum get more than 1 rebound? Will Artest be Jekyll or Hyde or both? For Celts, will Ray Allen shoot blanks or set records? Will […]

Why Tall Players Can’t Shoot Foul Shots

Lakers Should Foul Rondo

Lakers vs Celtics

Posted by Barry

One of the most important areas Lakers have advantage in is foul shooting. Although a couple of Lakers are below NBA average, 77%, Celts Kendrick Perkins and Rajon Rondo have both been very poor free throw shooter their entire careers. This may proof pivotal as series move along. Suns lost game 5 and eventually series […]

Paul Gause

Posted by Barry

Worked out Paul Gause, former Big East pt. guard from Seton Hall. Paul, former 3000 pt. scorer in HS and minor league pro cornerback in football, is an excellent learner eager to take his hoops game to next level. Adjusted how he received pass, footwork and follow through. With practice, he has great chance to […]
