Their physical appearance and sometimes even their disease history become part of who we are. Most of the time, we also copy their attitudes and mannerisms. In the case of Wardell Stephen "Steph" Curry, one cannot help but wonder if he also inherited the shooting touch of his father, Dell Curry. An NBA pundit said that great shooters are not made, they are born. The same can be said about Stephen Curry, to some degree. His father, Dell Curry, was always a great shooter. Dell tallied a total of 1,245 three-pointers in an NBA career that spanned a decade and a half. Steph obviously got a lot of his shooting abilities from the genetics that his father passed on to him. However, the younger Curry is not all genetics. He has taken what his father gave him and raised it to a whole new level because of his insane work ethic. In a sense, Steph is a shooter who was born to be made.

Learn the Incredible Story of the Golden State Warriors' Star Shooting Guard Klay Thompson! Read on your PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet or Kindle device! In Klay Thompson: The Incredible Story of One of Basketball's Sharpest Shooters , you'll read about the inspirational story of basketball's star, Klay Thompson. This short unauthorized biography of Klay Thompson highlights his quick ascent into the league as a sharp shooter. Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry form arguably the most dangerous backcourt in the NBA due to their impressive ability to shoot and make three-pointers. It isn't uncommon to find the Warriors down more than ten points with only a few minutes to go, and yet still win the game behind a three-point shoot out led by the Splash Brothers. With a new four-year, $70 million contract as of the 2014-2015 NBA season, Klay Thompson still has much to prove, with his prime still to come. It will be incredibly exciting to follow the young career of this sharp shooter. Golden State's cast of Stephen Curry, Andrew Bogut, Andre Iguodala, and David Lee led by Steve Kerr will be an exciting team to watch out for in this year's postseason.Read on to learn about Klay Thompson's journey into the league, to his college years at Washington State before ultimately propelling into the NBA. Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Childhood and High School Years College Years at Washington State Klay Thompson's NBA Career Klay's Personal Life Klay Thompson's Impact on Basketball Klay Thompson's Legacy & Future An excerpt from the book: Klay Thompson is a natural born athlete gifted with a shooting stroke reminiscent of Alan Houston, who is coincidentally one of Klay's basketball idols growing up. Though genetics may play a huge role in Klay's ability to play multiple sports, hard work and dedication has clearly molded him into the player he is now and the player he will become. Growing up in Oregon, he was always with his brothers playing in a multitude of leagues, which included baseball and basketball. In addition, you would always find the Thompson brothers playing hoops in their backyard or in the front driveway. Klay lived a great life with his family and was brought up in a nice neighborhood.There was not much tragedy that Klay had to overcome to get to where he is now. He was not living in a bad neighborhood where rival gangs and drugs were rampant. He did not have to worry where his next meal would come from or whether his dad would ever return back into his life. Nevertheless, Klay's journey is inspirational in itself and he deserves to be exactly where he is because of his poise and character.Growing up with father Mychal Thompson, who was a 2-time NBA Champion, had its benefits and perks. For one, Klay was taught valuable lessons in all areas in life as well as life as a pro from his very own dad. Naturally, Klay was as intrigued as he was curious to know what it was like to play professionally; to play with the best of them. This eventually increased his desire to make it to the NBA and to experience what his father did successfully. One milestone at a time, Klay worked his way through high school, even setting a few records along the way.

Learn the Incredible Story of 90s Basketball Superstar Reggie Miller!Read on your PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet or Kindle device!In Reggie Miller: The Remarkable Story of One of 90s Basketball's Sharpest Shooters, you'll read about the inspirational story of basketball's premier shooting guard, Reggie Miller. Reggie Miller broke the record books during his incredible eighteen-year NBA career. In an age filled with greats like Michael Jordan, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing, Hakeem Olajuwon and John Stockton, Reggie played in one of the most exciting eras of modern basketball. While the Indiana Pacers failed to win a ring during Reggie's tenure, they played some of the most spectacular playoff series in NBA history and made it to the NBA Finals in 1999-2000 before ultimately falling to the Los Angeles Lakers. A hall of famer, Reggie Miller had one of the smoothest strokes that basketball has ever seen. While newer players like Steph Curry may statistically be the best shooters to play the game, Reggie Miller still easily remains a top shooting guard in NBA history.Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Early Life and Childhood College Years at UCLA Reggie Miller's NBA Career Miller's Personal Life Reggie's Impact on Basketball and Beyond Reggie Miller's Legacy An excerpt from the book:The NBA has two kinds of star players.There are those who are always in the ear of their opponents, teammates, referees, fans and anybody near the basketball court, telling everyone how good they are. Other players would rather lead by example and let their game do the talking for them, believing that sinking a buzzer-beating 3-point shot says more than telling someone that you have got skills.Then there is Reggie Miller.Perhaps no other player in NBA history has combined the two types of players more so than Miller. One cannot think of Miller without harkening back to some of his more famous on-court escapades, such as his back-and-forth banter with movie director Spike Lee in Madison Square Garden, overtly giving the choke sign by visibly wrapping his hands around his neck for everyone to see, bowing to all sides of the arena in a mocking manner and even head-butting a player (see Starks, John, 1993 NBA Playoffs). Miller relished road games and playing the role of the villain so much so, that his 1990's autobiography was titled "I Love Being the Enemy."

Hakeem Olajuwon broke the record books during his incredible NBA career. In an age filled with greats like Michael Jordan, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing, Reggie Miller and John Stockton, Hakeem played in one of the most exciting eras of modern basketball. The Houston Rockets won two championships during Hakeem's time with the Rockets. A hall of famer, Hakeem Olajuwon had one of the most infamous signature moves that basketball has ever seen. The 'Dream Shake' was equally as deadly a shot as Tim Duncan's bank shot that we have all grown up watching.Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Early Life and Childhood College Years at University of Houston Hakeem's NBA Career Olajuwon's Personal Life Impact on Basketball and Beyond Hakeem Olajuwon's Legacy An excerpt from the book:Olajuwon came to basketball prominence from relative obscurity in a time when international scouting was not a high priority in either college basketball or the professional ranks. The success of Olajuwon foreshadowed the prominence of international-born players in the future of basketball. For example, the San Antonio Spurs have been the NBA's model franchise over the past decade while featuring stars born outside the 50 states in Tim Duncan (U.S. Virgin Islands), Manu Ginobili (Argentina) and Tony Parker (France). Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki (Germany) and Los Angeles Laker Pau Gasol (Spain) have also made their mark in the league and won NBA championships.

Learn the Incredible Story of Basketball Superstar Michael Carter-Williams!Read on your PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet or Kindle device!In Michael Carter-Williams: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Young Elite Point Guards, you'll read about the inspirational story of basketball's premier point guard, Michael Carter-Williams. Michael Carter-Williams has emerged as a high profile point guard in the NBA amongst the likes of Derrick Rose, Steve Nash, Russell Westbrook, and Rajan Rondo after sporting a stellar 2013-2014 NBA season. While the Philadelphia 76ers still have a ways to go before becoming a contending team in the NBA, Michael Carter-Williams has offered new hope for the city. After a promising rookie season, MCW has a bright future ahead of him as he will be a center piece for the rebuilding 76ers franchise.It will be exciting to see how Michael Carter-Williams and the 76ers do in the years to come.Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Early Life and Childhood College Years at Syracuse MCW's NBA Career Michael Carter-William's Personal Life Carter-William's Impact on Basketball and Beyond MCW's Legacy An excerpt from the book:Besides being the only two 76ers to win the NBA's Rookie of the Year Award, Carter-Williams and Iverson share a love of playing time. Carter-Williams, who averaged more than 34 minutes-per-game as a rookie, appears to mirror Iverson in this underrated aspect of the game. Iverson, though shorter than Carter-Williams at more-or-less six feet tall, would have played 48 minutes a game had coaches allowed that to happen. Like Carter-Williams, Iverson did not have an especially big frame, yet he repeatedly took beatings from drives to the hoop and never complained - an endearing quality to the hard-nosed Philadelphia sports fans. Iverson's drive and determination made up for any lack of a jump shot or other basic basketball shortcoming - lessons that can heed the shooting challenged Carter-Williams. There is no doubt that Carter-Williams can score, based on his numerous double-digit point totals, but Iverson can certainly stand as an on-the-court role model for Carter-Williams as a player who found any way he could to get to the basket when his shot was not falling or opposing defenses were taking him out of his game.There is no guarantee that Rookies of the Year will become great players or that Carter-Williams will follow in Iverson's footsteps and become the next 76ers star. Look for Carter-Williams to put on a little more weight in the off-season to overpower most of his opponents and to sharpen his shooting skills. He may never be seen as an elite shooter, but considering the potential talent around him and his ability to run an offense, Carter-Williams only needs to shoot well enough to keep defenders honest and not drop back to cut off any drives to the basket. If this happens, the holes in Carter-Williams' armor will disappear and Philadelphia's days of high draft picks should fade into memory.

Limited time offer: If you buy the print edition, you can keep the Kindle edition for yourself! In Aaron Gordon: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Rising Star Forwards, you will learn the incredible story of one of basketball's most exciting young forwards, Aaron Gordon. As the fourth overall pick in the 2014 Draft, Aaron Gordon has become a prominent piece of the Magic franchise as they continue rebuilding post the Dwight Howard era. Now entering his fifth season, expectations are the highest they have ever been for Aaron Gordon with his new four-year contract he signed in the summer of 2018. At the time of this writing, Gordon is coming off a career season, still with a great deal of potential and upside to actualize at the young age of twenty-two. It'll be exciting to follow Gordon's journey as he continues to grow in the years to come. Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Childhood and Early Life High School and College Career Getting Drafted, Rookie Season, Putting on a Dunk Fest Aaron Gordon the Small Forward and Breakout season Gordon's Personal Life Impact on Basketball Legacy and Future An excerpt from the book: The NBA is a league that goes through a process of constant evolution. Players, coaches, and new systems change the game. The modern-day NBA has become wildly different from what old-school basketball fans are used to. The success of three-point shooters, guards, and versatile big men have paved the way for how teams now emphasize space and a faster pace. Because of how the game changed, players have had to change as well. Guards today focus more on scoring and shooting rather than passing. Wing players are now supposed to space the floor well and defend all perimeter positions. Meanwhile, most centers are now only rebounders and paint defenders. But despite the massive changes to how players now play, one thing that remained constant is the athletic and versatile power forward. Throughout the years, the NBA has seen the likes of Karl Malone, Shawn Kemp, Kevin Garnett, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Blake Griffin. Those players are known for their athleticism and versatility as power forwards out on the floor. No matter how the league has changed, any team can appreciate the talents of such players because of the variety of what they can do on both ends of the floor. They can use their superior athleticism to score inside the paint. They can blow by or outrun their defenders because of their mobility. And on the defensive end, they can cover both big man positions and can also keep up with some perimeter players. Today, the player that is next in line for the mantle of the league's premier high-flying power forward is Aaron Gordon. When it comes to sheer athletic ability, almost no other power forward in the league can match up to what Gordon can do. He is known for dunking the ball hard in creative ways. He not only uses that athleticism to put up contest-worthy dunks but also to outplay and outrun slow-footed opposing big men that fail to keep up with him. And on the defensive end, he does not only guard both big men positions but also the perimeter players as well. But what makes Gordon truly fit as an athletic power forward in the modern-day version of the NBA is his ability to stretch the floor.

Rob McClanaghan, the NBA’s most sought-after trainer, shares a behind-the-scenes look at how superstars like Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, and Kevin Love work to excel at the game. When Rob McClanaghan failed to make the Syracuse basketball team as a walk-on freshman, he asked the coaches what he needed to do to achieve his goal the following year. They all agreed: get stronger. So that’s what he did. For months, Rob traded fraternity parties and hanging out with buddies for hours in the gym lifting weights and shooting baskets. He was single-minded; the only thing that mattered was defying the odds. He returned to Syracuse for his sophomore year thirty pounds heavier and caught the coach’s eye. In Net Work, McClanaghan—referred to by many as “RobMac”—brings to the page what he brings to each of his training sessions: the same grit and spirit that got him into the college game. He calls it “the grind,” and he knows that without it, even the most talented players will come up short. McClanaghan pushes his clients hard; he does whatever he can to drive his players to the edge and to simulate fourth quarter, at-the-buzzer adrenaline and fatigue. An all-access pass to the practice courts of the NBA, Net Work combines McClanaghan’s hard-earned wisdom—both on and off the court—with rare glimpses into the dues-paying life of professional athletes determined to stay at the top. McClanaghan shares stories of working one-on-one with some of basketball’s greatest names, explaining how each athlete works to shore up his offensive and defensive weaknesses; perfect his nutrition; treat injuries; build mental toughness; and find occasional refuge from the glare of the spotlight. This book is life inside the NBA as you’ve never seen it, where players differentiate themselves by their willingness to put in relentless “net work.”

The greatest joy and fulfillment are within your reach, but they require an enduring Promise to The One…someone you might not expect. It’s not your boss, your spouse, your children, or others—no, the ultimate commitment is The Promise you make to yourself to discover your purpose and gifts and share them with the world. Everyone has been hurt or negatively impacted by broken promises. Promise-breaking and a lack of integrity are symptomatic of the most chronic illness faced by society today. Even though many leadership courses and ethics programs tout “integrity” as a buzzword, few of us are really assessing our own values unless someone calls us out on a discrepancy. But even when others don’t catch on to the façade, when our values aren’t in alignment with our actions and when our actions aren’t consonant with our gifts and passions, we’re left feeling isolated, drained, and depressed. No recognition or acceptance from others can fill the void in the same way as when you keep a Promise to yourself and actually follow through on it. The Promise is the highest level of engagement we commit to in any experience. The Promise is greater than a goal—it’s a sacred commitment. It’s complete dedication to identifying your Signature Moves—the unique talents you’ve been given that, when developed and used to better others’ lives, make you a Legendary Leader. What choices do you make when no one is watching? How do you approach a decision that requires you to let either yourself or someone else down? How do you stay committed to your values, even when the less-rewarding path is more convenient? A renowned speaker and performer who has helped audiences worldwide appreciate what accountability really means, Jason Hewlett shares his program for self-discovery and taking ownership of your gifts in The Promise to The One. His unique three-step method—IDENTIFY • CLARIFY • MAGNIFY—will enable you to pinpoint your strengths, shape them into an identity to which you commit, and develop them so that they can improve others’ lives as well as your own. Filled with Jason’s signature wit and vulnerability as well as actionable exercises, this book will help you refine your character and reach your dreams through the power of kept Promises. Start your journey to living a life of Promise Making and Keeping…beginning with The Promise to The One.
