C.A.M. You Digg It?!

Posted in New Posts, News on November 14th, 2010 by Troy Miles


 horses (CAM

  The mind must contain the horses of the brain.  

The brain can take you where you want to go, but can also take you other places not so pleasant. The lesson? YOU must show the brain the way to have things go your way.  This is something you can’t ignore.

 ( “Listen to the Message”)

Alas, the brain is but a tool and fear its great inhibitor,  tis why for gain, the rule for you is to steer nerves to the perimeter… and show them the door.

How else can you absorb the distractions, noise and summon the poise to perform on the floor. What’s more, you must be environment proof (whatever the scoop) or your skills too can go poof … and so can minutes. Getting them back … a helluva chore.

Only be scared if you’re not prepared. Even then fight to win. But, if you know what to do, then  you gotta break through the shackles of doubt and continue to deliver what’s on the menu.  Anything less than 130% of self MUST NOT CONTINUE.  What’s all the work for?

It’s C.A.M. (Calm Assertive Mind) … THAT’S THE PLAN.

Inside you’ll find the keys to unwind and relax perhaps. Especially when there’s chips to stack and circumstances to smack. Put “i n” to it , if you’re tense and get intense. Instead of  allowing brain tricks, do a brain shift. Change the F in fear to G and let your mind ride free of indecision and apprehension. They’re a no-win proposition  and usually around when performance is poor.

Oh, by the way did I mention…


Confidence is the key to your tool box, fear and it’s sphere of doubt are the locks.  So get inside yourself to find wealth (“What You See… Is What You Get”). Without it it’s tough for jocks to tick-tock and see clock. Forget about the crowd roar.


I know I’ve said nothing you haven’t heard before. There’s nothing new Son… especially under the basketball Sun. But things are always changing. And how you adjust to the constant flux will determine which reality you land on.

I implore you to employ all you have in store to sip from the cup of joy.

Give ’em the Rhythm

Posted in New Posts, News on August 13th, 2010 by Troy Miles

The rhythm is the beat and perhaps the most important element in music.  It drives the players forward. It can be even or uneven, steady or unsteady, but always has a certain tempo.  Basketball, just as in music, demands that you be in tune to the rhythm of the game in every circumstance of play.  Understanding when to be fast or when to be slow allows you to operate freely inside your skill sets, yet in harmony with other individuals and the overall game action- just like jazz players or other musicians at the Symphony, perhaps.

The Game after the Game

Posted in New Posts, News on July 3rd, 2010 by Troy Miles

Jordan Hamilton comment from “If You Can Hoop… there’s Hope”:

Growing as a basketball player with the programming of optimal default settings through Virtual Play is the most challenging, frustrating, and rewarding processes I have been a part of. Already I am able to see the infinite connections between the hardwood and the

“real world” and how easily success on the court can be translated to success in life. A virtual basketball player is unstoppable with unlimited potential.. the same is true for a virtual individual.

The Game After the Game: A player’s perspective of  Virtual Play applied outside the Hardwood.  By Jordan Hamilton (Lehigh University)

When I began “virtual” training 7 years ago, I had the simple goal of improving my basketball game.   I had no idea I would be  able to accomplish so much on and off the court.  In fact, I’m in the process of  turning a lifelong dream(s) into reality. My success in basketball can be quantified though numerous athletic  awards and a  Division 1 scholarship. My scholastic awards speak for themselves.  However, it’s hard to quantify how much I’ve changed as a person. The countless hours I’ve spent in the gym programming inside of virtual play is why I’ve gotten where I have in basketball and why I believe I will end up where I want to go in life. Much of “The Virtual Player’s Blog” focuses on virtual play in the context of basketball. I intend to take a step back and look at  how “going virtual” has taken my life game  to another level.

Becoming a virtual player has been the most challenging task I have undertaken, and one I have yet to complete. The difficulty lies in working inside the small details of complete functions. These small parts – each mathematically efficient,  are compounded together to create powerful default settings for successful play or on the everyday level- modes of conduct. The required understanding of how each part contributes to the effectiveness of the whole and greater picture is what makes virtual play difficult, but also superior to any other form of skill development I’ve experienced.

Virtual play  forces you to accept , internalize, and execute specific information. This process demands  extreme focus (in order to stay present  against the emotional distraction of the brain while dealing with  material that has not already been programmed into the system).  Each rep  must be analyzed  and necessary adjustments  must follow. Perfect reps are difficult to come by and lack of emotional control further inhibits growth.

The good news is, with each perfect rep comes development and  a strong sense of confidence and empowerment to do anything.  As long as I’m willing to work on the right things, it  gives me a huge boost on the court and a tremendous edge in the classroom.  Of course, no one has command over each area, but through programming, proficiency will improve at a rapid rate.  I’ve found these skills to be useful in every area of my life – including  relationships and daily interactions.

My Journey as a virtual player has been rewarding beyond belief.  I’m winning the greatest battle of all: the battle over the mind. Over the years I’ve steadily surpassed my peers  and  believe no obstacle is too great. I continue to improve technically and emotionally while others seem to mostly maintain or improve only physically.   I recommend exploring the world of virtual play for anyone looking for an edge in basketball and a model for successful life. Virtual play has changed my life forever and for the better.


It has been a long and windy road to arrive at this point in my journey. Feeling blessed to have the opportunity to do what I love and spread soulful joy through the medium of basketball. Thank you for all that supported and believed in me along the way especially Troy Miles whose patience, knowledge, and powerful presence taught me how to play and live as a VP.

Enter the Basketball Matrix?

Posted in New Posts, News on June 29th, 2010 by Troy Miles

This is the dawn of the new  basketball vanguard. “The  Virtual Game…” will usher in a new understanding of prowess, objective and expectation.  I hope the articles to date have moved you at least closer towards the world of Virtual Play and the realm of optimization.

Welcome to the basketball matrix.  Here ultimate technique meets artistic expression. As a Virtual Player, you are bound only by perfection and emotion. Actualization as a Virtual Player occurs when you have mastered the art of allowing yourself to demonstrate the full gamut of your skill sets in the moment of exchange.

The road to virtual actualization is an arduous journey. It is truly the road less traveled. It takes incredible brainpower and discipline to deal with the rigors of programming and development: Man vs. Brain is the main event in an emotional “super fight.” So few stay the path as the stress and strain of change becomes too difficult and the process outweighs the passion and resolve of the individual. It is understandable. A Virtual Player is a rare treasure and like the most precious stone, the product of proper pressure, focus and time. Pressure to improve steadily. Focus on the right materials. And time to make it all happen.

May this material be a new testament for a new

millennium player

VP’s objectives for play are governed by net result and outcomes. Success is based on established default settings for optimal performance and extreme focus. VP’s mental make-up is one of emotional control. This control is rooted in the ability to withstand the toll of programming – interjecting commands to forge positive reps and acquire skill. VP’s realize they are greater than the brain and can exercise dominion through hyper-focus and a calm assertive mind. This mastery of the brain game will stand as a purposeful model of understanding advancement for whatever else in life.

As a VP you function as a viable component of any system.  You understand that it takes the right inputs for the right outputs and are machine-like in your approach. Intellectually you process the action of the game frame-by-frame, as if driving through an uncontrolled intersection: quick to assess and ready to act. This ability makes you an outstanding decision-maker even under duress. In fact, the more pressure you are subjected to, the closer you will move toward your defaults for clean play and performance. You fully embrace the law of leadership and work to preserve your offensive advantage to be first.  Your mission defensively is to “SCHOOL” your opponent and protect the “Queen” by any legal means necessary.

You are supremely confident, and your purpose and resolve is unshakable. You evoke the ire of inferior competition and the nodded respect of other true players. Purists will revel in the “basicology” of your play. However you must accept the reality and responsibility of continuously impacting others both positively and negatively. People’s perceptions of you as a player and person will be in constant flux as they attempt to balance your ability with their ego. Still, you must continue working to minimize negative impacts involving those in your environment who cannot comprehend your prowess or processes. Your sole goal is chartable growth at all times.

Technology will forever change. You must adapt to these changes or be prepared to fall short of your objectives.

Be gracious in victory and honorable in defeat. You are a Virtual artist who respects the game and others who play it. Above all, you respect yourself enough to register and accept optimization where you may find it. Grow in the game like you will play forever. Play like it is your last opportunity to perform —  “The Virtual Game of Basketball”
