Since 2008 Nick Graham Player Development has contributed to the development of thousands of players worldwide most notably, Jimmer Fredette, Trae Young, a handful of other NBA players and hundreds of division 1 college players.

Nick released his first book, published by Lucid books, God x Basketball, which is a book of basketball themed Christian devotionals aimed at character development for competitive hoopers this past September. Please take time to get to know NGPD better by visiting the enclosed link.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
