Game 1 of the NBA Finals had a MUST SEE ending! Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs
made a clutch shot to seal the game. A lot of people saw it as a circus shot and says that it was
“lucky.” But what people aren’t seeing or talking about is the fundamental skill that he used to
make that happen that EVERYONE has been taught since square one…. …Want to know
what that skill is? Do you?
HE KEPT HIS DRIBBLE ALIVE WHEN HE FELL DOWN! Most players when they hit the floor they clutch
onto the ball with dear life. Not Tony, he has been one of the leagues’ top play makers for several
years and as a veteran PG he knew that if he was able to keep his dribble ALIVE long enough to make
a play, then he could do just that. MAKE A PLAY! A game-winning play at that. If you missed it or want
to see it again, I provided the video for you!

While working with Tim I was able to improve my weaknesses and turn them into strengths. He was fully dedicated and passionate about making me a better player and giving me the tools I need to sharpen my game.
I look forward to working with him again next summer.
