Players who want to excel must be able to make split second decisions. In this video, Nike Basketball Trainer Ganon Baker provides the tools needed to improve decision-making and basketball IQ. You'll see Baker, one of the most innovative basketball trainers in the world, run a group of players through an intense workout that will challenge any player to focus, execute details and read the defense.

Baker begins by breaking down his philosophy on building a workout that focuses on the mental aspects of the game. He identifies the maturation process a player must go through to elevate their game, as well as what it takes for a coach to get them through the process. One of his core beliefs is that the biggest divider from one player to another is their ability to make decisions. The drills that follow address this theory.

The workout begins with Attack the Cones drills. This series of dribbling drills focus on reaction and decision making, while developing and executing moves for attacking the basket in transition. The series also includes:

  • Attack the Hand - Players practice four kinds of floaters. In addition to working on the floater, this drill teaches patience, control, and explosiveness.
  • Reading Two Defenders - Ball control, explosiveness, and competitiveness are just a few of the elements involved in this drill. As players attack the defender head-on, they must also read the closeout correctly and then beat a second defender after the first defender.
  • Squeeze Drill - Players learn NBA actions while being forced to make split second decisions. Backdoor cuts and dribble hand-offs highlight this drill, but it is the added mental challenge that makes it so unique and challenging.
  • Narrow Pin Down Drill - A great two-man drill that teaches team work in addition to the skill.
  • Down Screen Drill - This drill is great for both forwards and guards who need to learn to play with their back to the basket.

By utilizing Baker's workout program, your players will be challenged to improve their teamwork and making precision reads. You will learn how to teach players to build their skills while also making them think on the fly. The included drills are fun and competitive, and your players will enjoy practice more than ever.

Working simultaneously on basketball skills and the mental aspect within each battle is what makes this video so unique. Players of all levels will benefit from the instruction that Baker presents. Learning to make split second decisions on the court can often be the difference between success and failure.
