"Basketball Evangelist," Ganon Baker, takes his message and passion all over the world. His energy is dedicated to developing basketball skills in young men and women. Baker and Williams teach drills in three segments, starting with form and advancing to speed and contact. As players work on form, they are encouraged to expand their game by moving out of their comfort zone. Improvement is based on the mistakes that come from pushing your game beyond comfortable limits. All of the teaching in this DVD will make kids confident and comfortable with the ball so that the ball becomes an extension of their hand. Good ball handling is the foundation of a players' developing game. The Form Series encompasses 24 stationary drills including ball wraps, triangle, knife, pound dribbles, WNBA dribble moves, wall and tennis ball drills. Next, ball handling is put into action in the Drive segment. Two partner drills are demonstrated that teach players to get close to defenders before making contact and driving by. The "body dribble" is illustrated as the key to dribbling past defenders and is incorporated into many of the drills. The action extends to the full court in the Jordan Maze drill and the "tip drill." These drills are applicable to all coaches and use cones on the floor to guide the dribbler. The Circle drill is a unique drill that focuses on dribbling and one-on-one play. All of the drills in this DVD will help players become better scorers by getting by the defense and putting pressure on the defense. This exceptional DVD makes a huge statement about building a foundation, which starts with handling the ball and will help build individual and team ball handling skills, teamwork and communication.

Ganon Baker has done it again with a breakthrough shooting workout that has it all. Footwork, shooting mechanics, teaching points and drills are on display in this intense one-hour workout. On this DVD, Baker instructs youth-team players on "the lost art of shooting." Players learn how to find shots in four ways: Catch & Shoot, Shoot on the move, Dribble & Shoot and Shoot off the fake. Average players can become offensive threats by working on these four facets of shooting. Because many players waste practice time with half-hearted shots, this DVD preaches players to "practice game shots at game spots at game speed." The workout shows how the serious player can use practice time to improve his shooting and scoring ability daily. Shooting mechanics depend on "perfect feet" by pointing 10 toes to the rim. A quick "one motion" shot is demonstrated that will help players shoot quicker and straighter. Jump shot basics are covered with six superior drills, including the demanding five spot shooting drill. An underrated aspect of the game is shot faking. When the fake is short, quick and balanced, the defender becomes the victim. The Iverson Jab and the Kobe Jab are taught and used in these drills. Shooting on the move is illustrated with the Iceland drill, a new version of the elbow to elbow shooting drill. The Downscreen, L-cut, and America's play drills teach players to play without the ball and create good shots. Conditioning plays a part in Baker's drills as seen in the Intensity Jumper chair drill and the cone drill. By incorporating multiple aspects of proper shooting, players execute combo drills to refine their skills. The workout concludes with seven shooting drills that test player's skills and intensity.
