✏Buy A Game Book Summary : "1. Stop Playing Scared. 2. Buy A Game. " What you read above is the best life advice I've ever been given. It was told to me by a fellow classmate in the 8th grade. And I've been using it ever since. I started playing basketball at age 14, after failed tries at football (equipment too costly) and baseball (couldn't hit a fastball or field a ground ball). I was a complete bum. Everyone in Mt. Airy was better than me - male AND female. I didn't make my high school varsity team until my senior year. I scored 2 points per game. How, then, did I get recruited to play at Penn State Altoona 2 summers later? How did I develop the game to sign my first professional basketball contract only 9 years after I started playing? This book is the story of how. I have had the idea of writing a book for a while now, and the beauty of the Internet is that anyone can put their work out there -- websites, workout videos, books -- freely without having to navigate through the traditional gatekeepers of self-expression. The Internet also allows one to experiment and do trial runs of their work, like this book: I made it free to all because the most important part of putting this out is your response; I know I can get a lot better at this writing thing and your critiques will be my first step in doing so. What you are about to read is my story as a basketball player -- only as it pertains to basketball -- from the time I began playing the game up to and through my college years. It is to be hoped that you find it interesting, insightful, descriptive, and entertaining. If so you should tell me. If you don’t, I want to know about that too, and why. Speak your mind. Enjoy. #WOYG

✏Basketball 30 Days to Tryouts Book Summary : I still remember tryouts day, my senior year of high school. I hadn't made the team for my first three years, though I knew I had enough game to be on the team. In fact, I felt I was better than some players who were on the damn team. But, the fact was, I hadn't proved it yet -- at least not when or where it mattered, or in front of whom it mattered. Until that happened, all the game I believed I had would remain a secret. I'd be the greatest not-on-a-team player in history. QUOTE "I hadn't proved it yet -- at least not when or where it mattered, or in front of whom it mattered. "We got out of school early on tryouts day my senior year, 12 noon, but basketball tryouts were held at the normal after-school time of 3pm. I walked to McDonald's to get a meal (this was way before I knew anything about nutrition), then came back to the school. Many of the boys who were also trying out had congregated in the auditorium to pass the time until tryouts, but I wanted to be alone. I didn't feel like talking, laughing or even listening to people. I just wanted to get my mind right for what I needed to do. I went to the 3rd floor and grabbed a chair next to my locker. I read the latest copy of SLAM magazine and bided my time. This was about to be my last chance to prove myself in basketball, my last chance to prove that all the time I'd spent on those sweltering outdoor courts had been for a purpose. I didn't want to make the basketball team. I needed to make the basketball team. QUOTE I didn't want to make the basketball team. I needed to make the basketball team. If you read my first book Buy A Game (you should read it, because it's free at, you know what happened: I finally made the team my senior year, and the rest is history. I walked on in college, got recruited to another college after my freshman season, and played 9 years of professional basketball in 8 countries. During this process, in 2006, I began publishing videos to a new site called YouTube. Over the course of over 7,000 videos, many players asked questions about a shared challenge that has kept myriad players from advancing in basketball: Performing at tryouts. Some of the most common questions: * How can I best impress the coach at tryouts? * What can I do to stand out? * What position should I play at tryouts? * What if I'm not allowed to play my normal position during tryouts? * How can I get the returning players to respect my game? * What mindset should I have during tryouts? * What can I do to better my skills, with only a week's time before tryouts? * Should I get hyped up before tryouts, or remain calm and steady? * I didn't make it this year. Can you tell me exactly what I should do to get ready for tryouts next season? * I feel like my career will be over before it starts if I don't make the team -- can you PLEASE help me get ready for tryouts? To address these questions and others on the subject of basketball team tryouts, I created this workbook, 30 Days To Tryouts. How It WorksI will share with you 30 pieces of information, suggestions and calls to action that will have you ready for your next basketball tryout. The information in this workbook applies to all levels of tryouts, from middle school to professional teams. By completing this workbook, you will: * Know exactly what will be expected of you at tryouts * Understand your ideal mindset for playing your best, and know how to get into this mindset at any time * Be able to relax yourself and defeat any possible nerves or performance anxiety before tryouts * Perform to the best of your ability at tryouts, definitively securing the roster spot you covet

✏The Mamba Mentality Book Summary : The first book from the basketball superstar Kobe Bryant—a lavish, deep dive inside the mind of one of the most revered athletes of all time In the wake of his retirement from professional basketball, Kobe “The Black Mamba” Bryant has decided to share his vast knowledge and understanding of the game to take readers on an unprecedented journey to the core of the legendary “Mamba mentality.” Citing an obligation and an opportunity to teach young players, hardcore fans, and devoted students of the game how to play it “the right way,” The Mamba Mentality takes us inside the mind of one of the most intelligent, analytical, and creative basketball players ever. For the first time, and in his own words, Bryant reveals his famously detailed approach and the steps he took to prepare mentally and physically to not just succeed at the game, but to excel. Readers will learn how Bryant studied an opponent, how he channeled his passion for the game, how he played through injuries. They’ll also get fascinating granular detail as he breaks down specific plays and match-ups from throughout his career. Bryant’s detailed accounts are paired with stunning photographs by the Hall of Fame photographer Andrew D. Bernstein. Bernstein, long the Lakers and NBA official photographer, captured Bryant’s very first NBA photo in 1996 and his last in 2016—and hundreds of thousands in between, the record of a unique, twenty-year relationship between one athlete and one photographer. The combination of Bryant’s narrative and Bernstein’s photos make The Mamba Mentality an unprecedented look behind the curtain at the career of one of the world’s most celebrated and fascinating athletes.
