Education of a Big Man (Repost)

Written prior to the 2015 NBA Draft, this article does a great job detailing Rakeem Christmas’ development in his four years of college under the supervision of Syracuse associate head coach Mike Hopkins. Hopkins is a Tim Ggurich protege and there are a ton of good coaching nuggets in here on post player development.

“The very best players at the top of the NBA, they come in before practice or after practice and do something,” Hopkins said. “When you focus on the process of getting better every day, you become a professional.”
