I enjoy randomly searching YouTube for all sorts of random things, music videos and how-to’s. The other day I was trying to teach my son a few basic moves that he can practice in the driveway. We both enjoy watching Kobe Bryant of the Lakers and found a “free lesson” taught by Kobe Bryant.
As a player and coach of the game of basketball, I love to watch and learn from others. Kobe Bryant, is who I like to pattern my game when I am on the court. I like to get into “character”, and be a “basketball player”. He has won 5 championships and is one of the best players ever to play the game, so finding this video of him teaching some basic’s he uses, I hope it will improve me as a player and coach.
The video is about 7 minutes long, and Kobe is a very good teacher. Some of these “basic’s” he teaches I try and relay to my kids that I coach.
Get Kobe Bryant tips on:
1.) Proper Grip and Shooting form
2.) Attack the Foot, Sell the Fake.
3.) The Pull up Jump Shot.
4.) The Art of the Foul Shot.
