Mike Procopio leaves no stone unturned as he delivers one of the most comprehensive skill development DVD's ever made.
Coach Procopio begins with a with a 25-minute warm-up that that provides a variety of shooting drills involving jump stops, pivoting, scoring off of the hand-off and the pull-up jumper in transition. Complex dribbling drills that include beating one and two defenders with various cross-over moves are also utilized to get players ready for the actual workout.
Shooting DrillsProcopio delivers a progression of position game shooting drills that emphasize the catch and shoot without the dribble, the post up and coming off the pin-down screen.
You will see how to drill various phases of dribble penetration through several 1-minute shooting drills that incorporate both a guard and a post player. Procopio demonstrates various "peel cut" and "fade cut" scoring opportunities that produce difficult to defend shot opportunities within any motion offense.
Procopio shares his technique for footwork, reading screens and attacking defenders in the individual wing portion of the workout. He covers four different reads off of the pin-down screen as he adds defenders to incorporate decision making into each 5-shot drill.
Players are taught scoring with a one dribble pull-up jump shot in various directions from the catch on the wing. Kobe-like jab steps and shot fakes are taught to create space, as players make 1-on-1 defending at the wing area a very difficult task.
Position-Specific DrillsProcopio shows you a number of guard post up opportunities as well as feeding the post and using dribble relocation for dangerous peel and fade cuts out of the posting area. The wing workout is concluded with a challenging 3-point shooting drill training shooting from different spots on the floor.
The post segment workout features 15-foot jump shots and one dribble pull-up shots from spots around the perimeter. The post players are taken through a variety of drills involving screens to learn proper technique for the pick and pop, screen & roll and the roll & replace, which are used on a nightly basis in the NBA.
This basketball skills DVD will improve your team's scoring from every position on the court making it a must for every coach's library.

This tape is long, it has some nice ideas for drills, but nothing I have not seen before, also the teaching is not tremendous, that's why the kids kept messing up in the video. Clear teaching and instructing and the kids would not have messed up as much. Good pro skills coach who is great tuning and working on all ready develop skills. The pace is okay not great.
The other reviews are spot-on, there is great value in this tape because of the length and the multiple position work. I wish there was some more emphasis on ball handling, its almost exclusively a shooting workout, but overall theres just so much gone over from such different perspectives to worry about that. Really good one to check out.
Championship Productions should include a 10 star rating because this DVD "Complete Player Development for Perimeter and Post Players" is the real deal and worthy of a 10 star rating!! Holy smokes, Mike Procopio is one heck of an instructor. He include game shots, at game speed, from game spots in this DVD. The warm-up section is worth 5-stars off the bat! I like the fact that you are using the players at the same time rather than having Post players at one end and the perimeter players at the other end. Procopio uses both position players at the same time!
The individual sections for the wings and post and how to read the defender is excellent. You have the wings working on curl cuts, fades, or flares. Plus the wing section on one dribble jump shots, how to create space, and tons of other stuff...Plus the hang dribble!!! (I have seen it but never knew what the term was for the dribble).
The post section covers the lost art of the mid-range game. Procopio has the fellas working on their mid-range game from 5-spots (25 shots total). How to catch the ball in the post and read the cutters as well as defenders.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. This is really a complete player development workout for both perimeter and post players. No need to buy one DVD for perimeter and one for the post. This covers them both!!
10-stars from me. I am buying more Procopio DVDS!!! :)
If you are looking for player development drills then this is a good DVD. No particular offense is highlighted, just good/sound basketball drill to help with building player fundamentals. 144 minutes of drill work speaks for itself!!!
I thought this was a very good dvd, you definetly get your money's worth as he goes from drill to drill quickly. I have purchased other instructional dvd's and you spend the majority of your time watching the same drill for way too long. Coach Procopio does a great job of incorporating perimeter and post players together to make workouts gamelike. I also liked how the drills were different, and not the basic drills coaches have been using for years.
