You know what you are good at, and you know what needs work. Which is more deserving of attention? As a player, unless you are blinded by supreme confidence, you are aware that you are not perfect. Perhaps you have never been the best shooter, or maybe you are an undersized post player. You also know where you shine on the court or in the locker room. With something like basketball, it is easy to get caught up in the areas that need improvement. This is not always a bad thing; there are always opportunities to elevate skill level but do not also forget to focus on the strengths that set you ap ..read more

Many have heard of the Mamba Mentality, but around here, people know about the Yanders Mentality. During Kobe Bryant's reign in the basketball world, a term was coined: Mamba Mentality. Bryant was the most skilled, ferocious competitor we had seen since Micahel Jordan himself. The Mamba Mentality embodied not only extreme competitiveness but also the mindset that is required to be the best. Here in the Midwest, many of us have witnessed or been touched by something very similar: the Yanders Mentality. Rob Yanders was an extreme competitor in his own right. His desire for personal domination wa ..read more

How are you spending spring break this year? How are your opponents spending spring break this year? Life will always be handing you great excuses for not honing your craft—bad weather, a full schedule, holidays, no gym, and so on. Of course, there is nothing wrong with taking breaks or needing time off - life happens. Just remember that the players you strive to be better than you may not be doing the same. Even the workhorse himself, Rob Yanders, would preach to his top athletes about the importance of seeking peace. You can consider ball to be life, but without balance, you can inadvertentl ..read more

Who can be a leader?
The Basketball Movement Blog
by Wil Harrington
1M ago
When we think of leaders in basketball, we often think of point guards or top-scorers. Leaders can actually come from any position. Inspiration can come from a lot of places. When your team is tired, a fiery speech from a coach or a commanding shout from a teammate can ignite a flame that helps everyone push through. Leaders keep heads from hanging when you're down, and egos humble when you're up. There are a lot of great examples of leaders in today's game, from coaches like Gregg Popovich and Erik Spoelstra to players like Fred VanVleet and De’Aaron Fox. The Basketball Movement was founded b ..read more

It is Valentine's Day, so The Basketball Movement reminds you of the importance of loving what you do.

We hear from the pros all the time about their love for the game or, occasionally, how they fall out of love and drift away from the sport. Love for the game is a common theme for top-tier athletes. Almost everyone likes sports, but i ..read more
