  •  How do you define ‘Basketball Intelligence’?
  • What are some qualities of an ‘Intelligent Player’?
  • What would you say makes your approach unique to others out there?
  • What is a ‘Teaching Games For Understanding Model’?
  • What do you mean by ‘basketball is an open skill sport’?
  • What do you mean by ‘Task Complexity’ and why is this important for younger coaches to understand?
  • What’s the single most important thing that a coach can do this week to help develop basketball intelligence?
  • Plus more!
