COACH LOK'S BIG THREE
CARE. When teams begin to work together and go thru the everyday effort necessary, they develop a certain comraderie that forces them to truly CARE about their teammates. When that happens, they will do everything that they can not to let their teammates down.
THINK. Players and coaches must strive to have knowledge of the system and the fundamentals of the game of ba
sketball, inside and out. THINK about the risk and reward involved in each decision, both on and off the court. 
TRY. Just try. Your very best. Every time! Be competitors without equal. Players and coaches, should strive to make sure that no one prepares more thoroughly or works more diligently to become successful - in everything they do.

PLAYGROUND
Pick-up basketball is a great place for players to build their game by playing against other players, maybe that are bigger or better, and testing their skills in an open environment. Other lessons are learned like getting along with others, conflict resolution, and the will to do your best - because if you don't your team steps oiff and ..."who's got next?"
YOUTH BASKETBALL
Teach young playters Skills not Systems. They need to learn how to play & make play-not just run plays. Do this in practice thru dynamic games and competitions, rather than static drills, to allow them to discover their abilities. Keep this level fun so they continue to come back and equate basketball with a great time!
HIGH SCHOOL
High School basketball is still educational based athletics. Even though it looks like pro sports it has a different mission. Coaches need to continue to strive to win, but understand the greater goal is to teach players some life-long lessons they can use long after the ball stops bouncing.
COLLEGE
Basketball can provide an avenue for social mobility and open doors to colleges players may not have thought of, gain admission to schools they may not have gotten into, get financial assistance to attend those schools, and connect them with others who can help them after graduation. Players should begin to prepare for this early and make sure their academics are in order.
DEVELOPMENTAL LEAGUES
NBA D-League, the PBDL, and the new ABA are all leagues where players can continue to compete and some can develop to the extent they get looks from higher professional leagues.
PROFESSIONAL 
By the time you see players at this level they've put in 1000s of hours into their game. The time to start is NOW!

Basketball Logic

by Ray Lokar on 05/23/18


Do we want to be easy to guard or hard to guard? Hard to guard. #Logic


Are you harder to guard when you are standing still or moving?  Moving.  Then move. #Logic

Is it easier to get open, pass or drive when it's crowded or when you have space? When you have space. So create good spacing. #Logic

Is it easier to throw short passes or long ones? Short ones. Throw short passes. #Logic

If you have good spacing, it's impossible to throw a basketball pass too hard. How hard should we throw it? As hard as we can. #Logic

If a teammate is open, what should we do? Throw them the ball. #Logic

Are you sure a teammate will be open later? NO. So Who should you throw the ball to? The 1st open man.  #Logic

Is the ball in the air longer if you wait for it, or come and meet it? When you wait. Don't wait. Meet the pass. #Logic

Is it easier to catch a ball with one hand or two. Two. Then catch  the ball with two hands. #Logic

Once you catch it, can you run with the ball or do you have to stop? You have to stop. So be on balance, and stop #Logic

Why would a teammate throw you the ball? You were open. So do something with it. #Logic

If you're open, it's a shot your supposed to take, and you're in your range, what should you do? Shoot it. #Logic

If you're going to shoot it, shoot it the way that gives you the best balance, vision and rhythm. #Logic

Do you shoot better when you're on or off balance. On balance. So be on balance #Logic

Do you make more shots when you're open or guarded? Open. So work to get open shots. #Logic

Is it easier to make short shots, or long ones? Short ones. Take short shots. #Logic

If you could shoot or pass-you would have. Maybe you need to go somewhere you're supposed to. So get there. #Logic 

Why dribble? Go somewhere you're supposed to. Improve a passing angle if you need to. Escape pressure if you have to. #Logic 

If you're not open for a shot your supposed to take, continue with #Basketball #Logic. The right shot will find the right player at the right time.
