Check out the Phil Martelli Shooting Workout – 2017 Nike Championship Basketball Clinic Notes!
You will need to take a look at the Phil Martelli Shooting Workout from the 2017 Nike Championship Basketball Clinic in Bioxli. Coach Phil Martelli is a veteran basketball coach that has been at St. Joseph’s for quite a while. One of the things that have maintained their success is the Phil Martelli Shooting Workout.
Coach Martelli gets a lot of phone calls when a college basketball team gets close to an unbeaten regular season. It’s because in 2003-2004, St. Joseph’s had a magical ride. It was the type of ride like Wichita State in 2014 or Kentucky in 2015.
Coach Phil Martelli and his team went 27-0 and ran to the NCAA Tournament regional finals that year. Just like Gonzaga did this year with Head Coach Mark Few. Coach Martelli thinks that it’s almost comical the pressure that is on Coach Few right now. Gonzaga was undefeated, but they have to get to the Final Four or National Championship game to have a good season?
St. Joe’s did it with Jameer Nelson back then. The Hawks were a media darling because they were the underdogs. It’s not like Gonzaga was this year. Jameer Nelson, Delonte West, and their team grabbed the attention of the country with a NCAA Tournament run that hasn’t been seen since. It was a time when college basketball tv ratings and attendance was going down, but it gave the sport a shot in the arm again.
It’s been a while since Saint Josephs has gotten that close to the National Championship, but Jameer Nelson still follows his school.
Jameer Nelson, NBA veteran with the Denver Nuggets, watched the Hawks run this year with a second round exit to Oregon. He watched their conference tournament games too.
Nelson is still close with his head coach Phil Martelli as they text off and on during the season. Jameer was the driving force behind the Hawks team that made it to the Elite Eight when they lose to Oklahoma State when his shot fell short.
Jameer Nelson has played ten seasons in the NBA with Magic, Celtics, Mavericks, and Nuggets. He still uses the Phil Martelli Shooting Workout to this day.
