By Adam Filippi, Foreword by Jerry West
Trade Paper Price 16.95

ISBN 9781600785467

Published Feb 2011

Shooting is the most important fundamental skill in basketball, but despite being the skill players are the most willing to practice, shooting technique is perhaps the least-taught fundamental of the game. In addition, there are very few instructional basketball books dedicated exclusively to shooting. Shoot Like the Pros is perhaps the most detailed analysis of shooting mechanics, covering every aspect of shooting, ever published. Divided into seven sections, it covers shooting mechanics, the mental aspects of shooting, free throws, game situations, strength and conditioning, teaching methods, and finally workout drills for advanced levels. Including tips from some of the NBA's biggest stars, this is a book that will give both players and coaches at all levels proper direction on how to improve shooting technique.

Published Nov 2008

In this revised and expanded edition, Los Angeles Times writer Mark Heisler investigates the 45-year history of the Los Angeles Lakers and unveils a pattern of pampered and/or misguided players, megalomaniacal executives, and owners whose obsessive drives for championships and attention combined to create an atmosphere of conflict for decades Throughout the entire 2003–04 season, fans and the media called the L.A. Lakers the biggest reality show in the country. But the laundry list of conflicts—the ongoing Kobe-Shaq bickering, Kobe's sexual assault trial, Phil Jackson's final season, Gary Payton's refusal to admit his physical decline, and the loss to Detroit in the championship—was just another year in the history of the Lakers. Madmen's Ball goes back to the Lakers' unceremonious arrival in Los Angeles in 1960 to show that the franchise has been embroiled in controversy, in-house battles and personality clashes for generations.
