What Now? (Journey For Growth & Development)

Posted in New Posts, News on October 8th, 2012 by Troy Miles

So you’ve hit a plateau and don’t quite know where to go? Well it’s not as bad for you as it is a pro… trust me, I know. 


As a youngster I never quite understood when I would see a martial artist in the park going through exercises in slow motion. I thought, “He’ll never fight in slow motion”. Fortunately I understand now that it is less about the speed at which you train and more about the precision of technique in each frame of movement.

Game + Game = Game

Posted in New Posts, News on August 23rd, 2012 by Troy Miles






 A Pro with consistent quality application is an All-Pro

An All-Pro with consistent quality application is a Hall-of-Famer


The first prerequisite for being able to “play” is to have the skill set to “play”.


However just having the skill set to “play” DOES NOT mean you play the game well.  The critical aspect in the equation is how you APPLY YOUR SKILL SETS during play. Therefore, your ER (efficiency rating)  or how you operate  during actual play is more critical than your PR (proficiency rating) or skill package in a vacuum (outside of game conditions).

Finally! LeBron is the Don

Posted in New Posts, News on June 22nd, 2012 by Troy Miles

LeBron James is a NBA Champion–finally! In perhaps the most entertaining Finals/playoffs in many years, he was the star of stars, beast of beasts. He is the best basketball player in the world and quite possibly the most valuable teammate in any sport.

The manner in which he weaves  cohesiveness  with his group conjures the maestro magnificence of Magic Johnson. While comparisons to the other MJ are inevitable, LeBron  is unique in his own basketball right. He has ascended the NBA mountain top and taken his place in rarefied air. Now Miami Heat fans can exhale and blaze into the summer as a championship city.

LeBron is the undisputed King (for now).  He has vanquished his opponents and silenced his critics. At the ripe young age of twenty-seven he has claimed  basketball’s ultimate crown, AND will watch as they raise a championship banner bearing his DNA.  I guess the question is, where can he or the Heat go from here?

Virtual Journey (John Allen)

Posted in New Posts, News on April 13th, 2012 by Troy Miles


It’s easy to be proud of John “Noog” Allen. He has gone through So much, and has gotten SO far. He is a cerebral basketball gladiator who is bound for greater glory in the game as a player and most likely as a coach.  

Opponents BEWARE. He has but scratched the surface of his Virtuality.

Virtual Journey: By John “Noog” Allen

“My Virtual journey started the summer before my senior in year high school, but my journey of life, love, and hoops started on the concrete of my backyard as a youth… “

 I felt like I was in my higher virtual self vs. Central (video)

Hour after hour I’d imagine myself playing in the big game. Day by day I’d return to the same hoop with the same ball, dreaming the same dream. It went something like this… close game, I got fouled and it was up to me to ice it. No pressure, just a little wind on a sunny Seattle day. There were days I missed one, sometimes two, but that never deterred me from coming back the next day– even in the rain.

Virtual Journey (Jordan Hamilton)

Posted in New Posts, News on April 10th, 2012 by Troy Miles

Jordan Hamilton has come an incredible distance as a VP (Virtual Player, Virtual Performer and most importantly-  Virtual Person).



“Virtual Journey”– By Jordan Hamilton

Virtual Training is more martial art form than drills. Individuals are taught to understand their body, mind, and the process in which one creates their reality (through skill acquisition). Programming new material into the established patterns of the nervous/belief systems is hard work. The body and brain are resistant to change; which is why so few players/people are able to reach there desired destinations” 

Jordan Hamilton, Co-Captain, Lehigh Men’s basketball

When I first picked up a basketball at the age of six, I had no idea where the round ball would take me. All I knew is that my dad, uncles, and cousins played; and being the impressionable youth that I was, I wanted to be just like them. I was hooked immediately and although I was uncoordinated (to say the least), gangly, and timid, I continued to play-albeit not very well.
