Reviews for Basketball Basics


"If you were a kid serious about basketball and actually mastered the techniques in this book and could execute them at full speed, you would become a very good player. Jay's book shows that what you need to know is simple; the trick is being determined enough to actually master them." —Globe & Mail


"Coaching and competing at the NBA level, obviously, is the apex of the game. This slim, soft-covered volume, full of photos and simplification, is aimed squarely at the grassroots, accessible to young readers. But still, how often have you heard pro players and coaches say: 'We have to get back to the basics.' Triano has solid credentials." —Toronto Star
