HoopsHype Kerry Kittles rumors

August 7, 2012 Updates

What are kids this generation lacking in comparison to when you were 20? Kerry Kittles: They are lacking the ability to play without the ball. Every kid I see now has to have the ball in his or her hands to shine. Everyone who teaches now also puts the ball in the kid’s hands and tells them to go one-on-one, stresses moves. So kids don’t know how to play without the ball in their hands. They need to learn how to move, when to cut, learn how to create space. Also, kids don’t know how to shoot. I am a big golf fan, and when you watch the pros play golf, it’s a mechanical sport, the large majority all have the same technique in regards to swing. You would think in basketball it would translate and we would have the same form in regards to shooting the ball. Lack of fundamentals. SLAM
