With its technical limitations, modern basketball has developed radically to a physical game. A revolution of basketball fundamental skills is needed, and now it is feasible with a break-through technique—Three-Finger Zen, Universal Ball-Handling Mechanism. In 2010, after five-year dedicated research and praxis, Xiaoxing Chen discovered Three- Finger-Zen (3fz), a nature mechanism of human hand and arm for handling the basketball. It benefits every participant of the sport, and has technical capabilities to revolutionize basketball for a perfect game. Chen built his theories and praxes of how basketball should work in 3fz with its unique features: • Integrates all basketball offense skills as one simple mechanism. • Enables unchallengeable shooting with exceptional accuracy. • Improves players’ athletic abilities and prevent passive injuries. • Enhances physical and mental development of children. • Sparks logic and artistic intelligence in youths and adults. • Promotes physical and mental health of the general public. Distinctive from conventional basketball skills, 3fz applies the last three fingers—middle finger, ring finger and pinky—to handle and control the ball. In this method, the ring finger plays a command-and-control role in the ball-handling processes of dribbling, passing, and shooting. The technique is easy to learn when you understand the 3fz mechanism and follow the training instructions. In this book, Chen reveals the steps to 3fz basketball revolution and teaches you how to be the best basketball player you can be.

When Kevin Garnett shocked the world by announcing he would not be attending college, as young basketball stars his age were expected to do, but would rather enter the 1995 NBA draft directly from high school, he blazed a trail for a generation of teenage basketball stars to jump right into the pros. That trend would continue until the NBA instituted an age limit in 2005, requiring all players to attend college or another developmental program for at least one year. Over that ten-year span, the list of players who made that difficult leap includes some of the most celebrated players of the past few decades-Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Garnett, Dwight Howard, Tracy McGrady, and numerous other stars. It also includes notable busts, players like Darius Miles, who either physically or mentally proved unable to handle the transition. But for better or for worse, the face of the NBA was forever changed by the prep-to-pros generation. Now that many of those players like Kobe and Garnett have concluded their careers, this is the perfect moment to revisit them and tell the definitive story of their era. Award-winning basketball writer Jonathan Abrams has obtained full access to all of the key players, coaches, and media personnel from that time, and he's written a book that is packed with rare insights and never-before-published details about this chapter in NBA history. Boys Among Menwill be a must-buy title for any basketball fan.

Per capire come da una fattoria del Wyoming si possa tracciare una linea che arriva dritta agli Splash Brothers. Come una sala da ballo di Harlem abbia aiutato un intero popolo a trovare dignità. Come giudicare gli arbitri sia molto più facile che essere giudicati da loro. Come il male delle scommesse facesse parte dello sport anche in passato. Come abbiamo dimenticato gli allenatori che hanno davvero innovato il Gioco. Cinque uomini, un ideale quintetto di rivoluzionari del Gioco made in Usa: l’allenatore-uomo d’affari, il giocatore all’avanguardia, lo scommettitore incallito, l’arbitro tutto d’un pezzo e il coach visionario. Storie vere che raccontano come il cambiamento, dentro e fuori dal campo, ha più a che fare con la forza di volontà e la capacità di cogliere delle opportunità che con la tecnica e il talento. LE LEGGENDARIE IMPRESE DI BOB DOUGLAS E DEGLI HARLEM RENS, LA RIVOLUZIONE DEL TIRO OPERATA DA KENNY SAILORS, LA CONTROVERSA FIGURA DI JACK MOLINAS, LA PERSONALITÀ SENZA LIMITI DI EARL STROM E IL GENIO TATTICO DI PETE NEWELL RAPPRESENTANO ALCUNI DEI MOMENTI PIÙ SIGNIFICATIVI DELLO SPORT CHE PIÙ DI TUTTI HA INCARNATO LA LIBERTÀ D’ESPRESSIONE E D’INTERPRETAZIONE, NEL GIOCO COME NEL PENSIERO.

It began with Magic, Bird, and Dr. J. Then came Michael. The Dream Team. The WNBA. And, most recently, "Spree" Latrell Sprewell—American Dream or American Nightmare?—the embodiment of everything many believe is wrong—and others believe is exciting—about the game. Today, despite the NBA strike, despite home run derbies, despite football's headlock on network television ratings, despite the much-heralded return of baseball, basketball has assumed a role in American culture and consciousness impossible to imagine 20 years ago, when arenas were empty and the NBA finals were broadcast via tape delay in the wee hours. So what happened? How did a "black sport," plagued by drug scandal and decimated by white flight, come to achieve such prominence? What are the subtle and not-so-subtle racial codes that define how the game is played and perceived, and the reception of its high-profile stars? What does the shift in popularity from the predominantly white, working-class ethos of baseball to the black, urban ethos of basketball suggest about contemporary life in America? What linkages exist between basketball and hip-hop culture and how did these develop? How has the arrival of women on the scene changed the equation? Bringing together journalists, cultural critics, and academics, this wide-ranging anthology has something for everyone, from hard-core fan to casual observer. Contributors: Todd Boyd, Kenneth L. Shropshire, Gerald Early, James Peterson, Susan J. Rayl, Davis W. Houck, Mark Conrad, Charles J.

For the last twenty-five years, the most dominant offensive strategy in college football has been the spread offense, which relies on empty backfields, lots of receivers and passing, and no huddles between plays. Where the spread offense started, why it took so long to take hold, and the evolution of its many variations are the much-debated mysteries that Bart Wright sets about solving in this book. Football Revolution recovers a key, overlooked, part of the story. The book reveals how Jack Neumeier, a high school football coach in California in the 1970s, built an offensive strategy around a young player named John Elway, whose father was a coach at nearby California State University, Northridge. One of the elder Elway’s assistant coaches, Dennis Erickson, then borrowed Neumeier’s innovations and built on them, bringing what we now know as the spread offense onto the national stage at the University of Miami in the 1980s. With Erickson’s career as a lens, this book shows how the inspiration of a high school coach became the dominant offense in college football, prepping a whole generation of quarterbacks for the NFL and forever changing the way the game is played.

It’s hard to believe that there was a time when the jump shot didn’t exist in basketball. When the sport was invented in 1891, players would take set shots with both feet firmly planted on the ground. Defenders controlled the sport, the pace was slower, and games would frequently end with scores fit for a football field. It took almost forty years before players began shooting jump shots of any kind and sixty-five years before it became a common sight. When the first jump shooting pioneers left the ground, they rose not only above their defenders, but also above the sport’s conventions. The jump shot created a soaring offense, infectious excitement, loyal fans, and legends. Basketball would never be the same. Rise and Fire celebrates this crucial shot while tracing the history of how it revolutionized the game, shedding light on all corners of the basketball world, from NBA arenas to the playgrounds of New York City and the barns of Indiana. Award-winning journalist Shawn Fury obsesses over the jump shot, explores its fundamentals, puzzles over its complexities, marvels at its simplicity, and honors those who created some of basketball’s greatest moments. Part history, part travelogue, and part memoir, Rise and Fire bounces from the dirt courts of the 1930s to today’s NBA courts and state-of-the-art shooting labs, examining everything from how nets and rims affect a shooter to rivalries between shooting coaches to how the three-pointer came to rule the game. Impeccably researched and engaging, the book features interviews and profiles of legendary figures like Jerry West, Bob McAdoo, Ray Allen, and Denise Long---the first woman ever drafted by the NBA, plus dozens more, revealing the evolution of the shot over time. Analyzing the techniques and reliving some of the most unforgettable plays from the greats, Fury creates a technical, personal, historical, and even spiritual examination of the shot. This is not a dry how-to textbook of basketball mechanics; it is a lively tour of basketball history and a love letter to the sport and the shot that changed it forever.
