80 Shot Drill

Posted by Steve Bzomowski on March 3, 2016

At all our NTL Weekend Camps, in our Boston NTL Videotaped Shooting Clinic, and, every week at our NTL Intermediate Skills & Scrimmage Clinic in Jamaica Plain (Boston), we do the 80 Shot Drill. I always reference Bill Musselman, head coach of the then new-to-the-NBA expansion Minnesota Timberwolves, as the person I stole the drill from. (Musselman is the basketball mind that is most often cited as the greatest influence on Tom Thibodeau, one-time Musselman assistant and later – and, who knows, future? – NBA Coach of the Year.)

Here’s his son, Eric, former NBA head coach himself (Golden State Warriors, Sacramento Kings) and now coach for the Nevada Runnin’ Rebels, talking about the value of the drill.
