Offensive Skill Development

Adam’s playing experience, knowledge of basketball fundamentals, and scouting expertise give him the ability to identify player weaknesses and therefore focus on those areas, obtaining measurable results. In addition he has gleaned basketball insight and experience from his working relationships with world class coaches (among them Phil Jackson, Tex Winter, Bill Bertka, Bill Sharman, Rudy Tomjanovich, Jimmy Lynam, Eddie Jordan, Mike Dunlap, Ettore Messina…). Filippi’s personal “hands on” method of training and teaching is proven to work with players of all ages & levels, children to NBA professionals. Unlike most coaches, Adam demonstrates all drills and moves, and trains “with” the players: guarding them in game-like situations, forcing them to “read & react”, “penetrating & dishing” for realistic game shots, and challenging them in competitive shooting drills.
