San Antonio Spurs Player Development – Day 1

At the moment I’ve got quite an interesting opportunity, in that one of my former players (as an assstant coach) is back home for the holidays – and the San Antonio Spurs’ D-League team (the Torros) have sent a coach home with him so he can continue his recovery form double shoulder surgery.

The player is Ryan Richards, who was drafted by the Spurs in the second round of the 2010 draft. Since then Ryan have been injured, but the Spurs see enough talent in the 6’10” 7’0” [update: Ryan pointed out he’s grown to 7’0” with shoes!] British sharp shooter that they have stayed with him, and continue his development.

For the last three days I’ve recorded his individual basketball workouts, and I thought I’d share it, even if it doesn’t have anything to do with the dribble drive directly.

The videos show most of the first workout (where the YouTube uploads didn’t fail), so it gives an interesting look into how NBA caliber players work out. I’ll keep updating with the next workouts over the next few days.

Note: The videos are unedited, and the language is sometimes rather PG. If you don’t approve I suggest you turn off the sound or don’t watch 🙂

Many more videos after the break
