The Hoop Consultants is a basketball consulting company created to assist players and coaches at all levels. Our site was designed to streamline how our clients receive their information. Instead of looking at 20 different locations to get information to help you in your career The Hoop Consultants sends you personal information to your personal interface in which you log on to. We send you the information that you need that is pertinent to you. If you are a shooting guard you will receive all information pertinent to that of a shooting guard, not a big man or point guard. We will help all of our clients by creating an environment in which basketball players and coaches and receive files, videos, and memos to assist them reach their goals.
The Hoop Consultants was created off of the idea of the work that I do with Kobe Bryant. Kobe receives reports and insight year round to help him become the best basketball player and winner the game has ever seen. I’m honored to be able to assist a player that is so gifted and motivated to be the best. In assisting Kobe on a day to day basis and players like Kevin Durant, Dwyane Wade, Devin Harris, Channing Frye, Caron Butler, Michael Finley , Juwan Howard, and over 150 others during the off season not only do I give them all I can as a teacher but also learn as much as possible from them. Basketball has been my life. I’ve been very fortunate to learn from some of the world’s top coaches and instructors. The same lessons that I have learned from them I plan on sharing with all of my clients.
There are too many bad habits in our game. Our mission here is to try to give as much information as possible to help our clients. For our paid clients we will answer any of your questions and give you all of our insight to make you better every day. This game isn’t about just skill development and drills as well as its not just about playing games. Its about taking both sides of it and combining it to make our game better as a unit. This is a simple game. You play it simple and we teach it simple. We don’t try to out think ourselves. We don’t try to set the perception that we are smarter than ourselves. Everything you receive from us will be thoroughly researched and broken down. The information that you will receive from us isn’t by suggestion from our clients. We send our clients information that generally as a group will help them. As a client of The Hoop Consultants there’s one thing you will be is prepared.
