In 1891, Dr. James Naismith Basketball invented the game called basketball: god bless this man!! Basketball, my favorite sport, is a game that is not only exciting to play, but to watch. For me, the only thing more exciting than seeing Vince Carter dunk over 7'2" Frederic Weis in the 2000 Olympics was to be able to do it myself (I wish!).

Basketball players are amazing athletes, and the best players possess the right combination of skill, agility, speed, stamina, athleticism, power and strength.

The game, at the professional level, has been changing. Players are more well-rounded. You have 7 footers taking three pointers on a regular basis (Dirk Nowitzki, Yi Jianlian). You have 6'8" guys who can run and handle better than some point guards (Lebron James, Tracy McGrady).

The drills and workouts below are designed to help you develop your full potential as a basketball player. Below you will find programs that will develop your strength, athleticism (agility, speed, and vertical jump), aerobic capacity (exercises over two minutes) and anaerobic capacity (exercises under two minutes)...
