A couple of days ago on Twitter someone asked me, over the last five years, what trends do I see in the game of basketball.
Right away I thought of personal trainers. And after talking to a friend, my second answer would be high school players leaving for Prep School.
Make no mistake, I am for anything that can help a player.
If you have the right trainer, it’s all good. If you’re a trainer and you’re in it for the right reasons, MORE power to you. I know of some good trainers out there.
As for prep school, this is a tough one. I always thought prep school was for post-grad. But it looks like underclassmen are packing their bags and heading to prep school.
Again, if it’s on the up and up, I’m okay with it.
Like almost everything else in the society, there are positive and negatives to both these new trends in basketball.
Do your homework.
Do it for the right reasons.
