“The task of shooting the basketball is one of the more difficult skills in all of sports. I think Adam Filippi’s book “Shoot like the Pros” is the best on this topic that I have ever read. He refines the technique into basic movements from the feet to the final release at the fingers in very basic terms”

Fran Fraschilla – ESPN

“I have gotten to know Adam Filippi over the past 10 years, as we have worked camps together and have had many discussions on the art and techniques of shooting the basketball.  In that time I have seen Adam work with players from grade school on up to the NBA.  I have looked over his shooting analysis several times and am very impressed!  It’s the most detailed and intricate analysis of shooting that I have ever seen. I have also read and incorporated his book and ideas into my own coaching and consider him to be one of the leading coaches in the world on shooting”

“It is my understanding that Adam is offering his services  as a Shooting Coach. I feel he would be a very positive influence on both the Coaches and all the young developing players. As a former player and great scout, he has spent endless hours analyzing proper fundamental shooting techniques and perfecting his method of teaching. Adam has authored a wonderful book on the subject of shooting. Any team and its developing players would benefit tremendously from his instruction and knowledge”

Bill Bertka – Legendary NBA Coach, Los Angeles Lakers

“When the Pistons organization asked me to improve my perimeter shooting, I began working with Adam Filippi. What I liked was that he did not try to make any major changes to my shot technique, but rather showed me how some very simple hand & finger position adjustments would allow me to control the ball better to stabilize my shot line. He also helped me understand my body better in order to develop a smoother shot rhythm, focusing more on extending my feet and not retracting my shoulders. The next season, my free throw percentage jumped from 71% to 81%”

Jonas Jerebko – NBA Player, Detroit Pistons

I’m absolutely certain that working with Mr. Filippi can add value to the success of any player or organization”

“Adam Filippi is an elite shooter and coach.  Those seeking mastery of free throw, three point and pro basketball game time shooting need look no further.  He is a rare jewel in a sea of shooting knowledge havoc. I was so impressed with the amount of information and content in Adam’s highly acclaimed book Shoot like the Pros that I contacted him and begged him to share his chapter on Free Throw Mastery at the National Basketball Shooters Association, www.nbsashooters.com, which he gladly did. The book is the most complete and accurate publication on shooting ever written. Adam is also a master shooter, who daily shoots 98% from the free throw line and 90% from 3p range”

Jim Schatz – Director, National Basketball Shooters Association
