    Hi, i like alot of the stuff that you guys put out. I have the Jump Manual Program and used it with my HS team and they saw results. Biggest gain was 6 inches in about a 2 1/2 month period and the least was 2 inches in the same period of time. I thought the program did a good job of helping them with their vertical. I also bought the Prolific Shooting Program. I did receive some benifits to teach players with it, but in my opinion Taylor talks too long on his tapes. It is hard to watch because of this. You have to fast forward through alot of it to get to the stuff that is benificial. Also, on the 1 on 1 tape that was sent out the other day, and I am not trying to take anything away but the defender did not look like he was playing very hard and he looked to be about 4-5 inches shorter. Those are some things I took away from it. I did realize you read the defender well and are a very talented shooter. That forces the defense to play you very close opening up the drive. You had good footwork and I think that is something all players need to have, it just did not look realistic to me. So overall, I think there are things that you can take away that are good but some of the things in the tapes and video make it hard to believe some of it.

      Thanks for the feedback – I definitely agree with you, I watched Prolific Shooting the other day and made some notes on what to cut out. It’s very difficult to cover every point efficiently from a powerpoint, and it’s VERY easy to start rambling – scripts work a lot better. Will be re-doing Prolific Shooting soon and the customers will get the new (more efficient) version sent for free. Thanks again for the comment and we always appreciate the feedback – positive or not.

      Hey Josh. Thanks for your feedback. With regards to having to “fast forward” to get most of the beneficial stuff in Prolific Shooting, you have to realize that not everybody is as advanced as you. We have some really young athletes who need to be told things in a simple, step-by-step manner (and unfortunately, this info may be too basic for others like you). Thanks for letting us know though, because we will have to find a way to structure the content in a way that both beginners and advanced athletes can gain maximum benefit from.

    Thanks for the videos…Great concept! I think that by defining the the skill set/things that great scores have/do will help other players a lot…I bought several baasketball training aids/DVDs for my son and have shared ideas/techniques with my players. I coach a boy’s youth basketball team from time to time with one of my friends and our philosophy is that everybody’s a guard…We try to help our players develop into well rounded players. We want everyone pushing the ball, running the break, scoring and playing evry position…See a lot of coaches just wannt to win no matter what and don’t take the time to help their players grow as athelets and more importantly young men. Again, thanks for the videos!

      Hey Mark. I really respect your philosophy… I agree that winning is not everything, and simply focusing on “winning at all cost” could really harm the players in the long run, because they won’t be able to grow and develop great character. All the best with your team, they have a great coach :-)

    Those sound like great points to display in the next video. Gewd Sheet! The video content I would like to see along with those that will be provided in the next video is how to pull up for that inside the arch shot or A.K.A. “Mid-range jumpers” and the timing along with the hand positioning against any defender, no matter the defender’s height or vertical. I would also like to see the timing and hand positioning for 3 ptrs. that require quick release such as a defender coming within that 1-2 seconds at you and the timing and hand positioning with release for 3 ptrs. that allow one to have 2-4 seconds without a defender on them.

    Thanks,

    J.C.

    Where are the references to Dwayne Wade and LeBron James? Two of the best instinctive scorers in the game.

      You could make that point about probably 15 players right now – there’s only so many to reference. Right now, I really like watching Roy and Tyreke Evans (Evans is UNREAL at beating the second line of D)

      hes too busy saying the words instinctive scoring a million times over to get to anything important

        Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, so if you didn’t get any benefit out of the video, I respect that. With that being said, Taylor did talk about LOTS of important points, and a large majority of the viewers agree, and gained a ton of benefit from it. We can’t please everybody, and we don’t force anyone to watch our videos.

    This was a great video. I am 43 and in freakishly good shape and still play ball hard. I do need help with settin up my defender with a jab step or head fake. I am interested to see what I will learn fm ur vids.

    Thanx for the videos. I have seven children and all are out of the house except for my twin girls who are freshman in high school. They are guards and are very athletic. They have all the instincs you have mentioned as I watch them play but couldn’t help them identify and build upon until these videos. They will help them to excel in basketball. They have such good court awareness now but sometimes give the ball up more than they should. Thank you once again for helping them hone their skills and I am positive this will help with the confidence level this year.

    I’m 15 now, and personally i think that id really benefit with these scoring strategies in my game mind you i am actually beginng to understand how to control and abuse my defender everytime ecspecially when you know right off the bat your defender cannot stop you. I think that like you said everyone is not a natural scorer but people try and force the issue just to say they score points aswell( not the scorers) the guys who ghave different roles, everyone is so focused on scoring because usually the top scorer gets the most recognition but overall thank you for the video this will certainly help me be way more effective and deadly out on the court and it’s much appreciated, hoepfully you have more vids to come..thanks

    good video. good job explaining the points. i am a sophomore point guard at VHS in NJ and this video layed it all out very well. The point that stood out to me was the “make ur defender move” and “control his movements” as well as mid range game. The mid range game for me is lacking right now, and this video helped me see it all. Thanks

    I play jv basketball and need to be more aggressive offensively in the post. Any feed back for how I can be a better post scorer???

    • Taylor Allan Says:

      A couple things to think about:

      - Keep contact with the defender at ALL times, make sure you feel where he is applying pressure on your back, and react away from that pressure

      - Keep your shoulder between your defender and the ball

      - MASTER the over-the-shoulder soft hook shot. You don’t have to be Kareem, but get really comfortable shooting over your shoulder with one hand. It’s next to un-stoppable.

      - Again… Contact. Don’t be soft.

      - Learn to take your game to the short wing and high post. Master shooting in the 15-18 foot range.

      Just a few things to think about.

    I think that my game would be better if I had more moves for creating space. I would like to learn more about perimeter play and how to spot a defenders weakness.

    Hey guys, ummmm

    I got all the scoring without the ball, control the defence and strong,
    but I don’t have the mid or perimeter range. How do i improve on them?

    I think instinctive scoring is something a person can develop. We all have the potentials to do it but many of us either do not have the information on how to become that type of player or we do not have people who believe in us and are willingly to be patient enough to teach it. I watch Kobe alot and each time i try to attempt the fundamentals of is moves in a game, i am told i can NEVER be or play like him. It is all about being around the right people

    Prolific scorers are blessed with their gift from god. Once that blessing is recognized it can be developed. If everyone had that kind of talent in them there would be hundreds of (the next mike) in the nba. But those guys come around once every ten or so years mike kobe lebron durant.most people are not even willing to put the work in required to reach that level of a player.

    i think what i need to work on is attacking the basket, and controling the defenders movement cause whenever i see an open oprotunity to attack the rim, i go for it but then, i either get it stolen or i miss because i defender doesnt give me any other option, so how can i work on that?

    It’s one of those things and concepts that seem almost too obvious but extremely eye opening at the same time. Definitely a more than necessary article and I’m looking forward to your follow up. I would and will especially recommend high school/collegiate athletes to check this out!

    What would it do for me personally? Are you kidding? This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. It would change my life forever. I would finally be able to reach my full potential on the basketball court. I’m a pass-first player, but if I’m in a situation where I need to score points, this would make me a more complete player. I’m very interested in becoming a more prolific scorer and jumping higher. Please show me how.

    Hey,
    I bought prolific shooting and scoring secrets and they have made my game so much better. However, I am having a problem shooting over my defender, even when I am sure he is not in a position to block my shot. I’ve practiced with real defenders, but I sometimes make a mistake in the air, and my shot may go off a few inches, causing it to miss usually. Feedback would be appreciated.
