The best teams are those that can win against all the odds. You will find teams who have less talent fighting and defeating teams who have amazing athletes and players who are bigger, stronger and faster. You will see teams who have a great start but a weak supporting cast improve as a unit and become better players individually as a result.
Underdogs win because they have heart. But where does that heart and fight come from? Where do they find the fire inside of them to do as well as they do? The answer is closer than you think. Could it be the practices with basketball drills and hard work that set them apart from the rest?
As a coach, you know that you have to create a winning mentality from day one. How does that happen? By giving your players the best knowledge possible. But not only the knowledge, you want basketball drills in practice that will teach them to become fighters. Make them hungry for success. Give them a drive to be the best at every facet of the game, possible. Whether it’s rebounding drills where you motivate them to show an animal hunger for the ball, or shooting drills where players learn to have laser focus on the rim, give them the best.
Winning teams know it’s not always going to be easy. There will be nights where the team does not shoot great, but still wins. How do they do it? They have practiced day in and day out for tough situations. They know how to fight. Their coach gives them top-notch basketball drills and then infuses them with a desire to do well at those drills and become a team of players who will not back down, no matter the opponent.
If you want the best basketball drills and to teach your team to be the best fighters possible, collections such as the “NBA and NCAA Basketball Drills” collection have top plays and blueprints from fighting teams such as the Baylor Bears. Your team can become “spartans” with the “Spartans Teams Skills Book” and have fun playing the game of basketball while learning how to battle like spartan warriors. Coaches from all over are raving about this collection but the final decision is up to you. If you think your team knows all it needs to know, and has more fight than any other team in the world, perhaps you already have it made.
