Virtual Journey (John Allen) Part 2: “The Wizard” of Sam Carver

Posted in New Posts, News on April 2nd, 2013 by Troy Miles

JA All-Merican

 John Allen DII First Team All-American

The scariest thing (for opponents) is John Allen STILL has mega room to grow… and he knows it.  As is…he’s a cold ass honky (the best one in the country for sure), BUT… he has loftier goals.

He’s CP2 (too), yet he’s still in college.  The better he gets, the  hungrier he seems to get.  He embodies the spirit of CQI and E5M: Continuous Quality Improvements and growth (at your craft) Every 5 Minutes. Read more »

Battle For Seattle

Posted in New Posts, News on December 14th, 2012 by Troy Miles

A Division I basketball school in Seattle should thrive perennially- especially as a member of the Pac 12. Lorenzo has basically done that and redefined what success means for UW basketball.

Think about all the major things he’s done and the bevy of talent to roll through since he’s been back on the block. What about all the terrific things we have given him credit for over the years… HE’S STILL HIM. He has won and electrified Montlake in the process . As a result he’s created a very high expectation model–which is great, as long as it can be lived up to . 

With a few tweaks, UW could be a national power. Without them they will remain an enigma, tantalizing fans with what could be or have been. Read more »

Your Arms Are Too Short To Box With Virtual Play

Posted in New Posts, News on December 11th, 2012 by Troy Miles

You’re beginning to notice there’s something about this Virtual Play stuff (Can’t quite put your finger on it?). Yet something draws you to it–especially if you’ve been anywhere near enough to witness its impact on players firsthand. More and more people are discovering the benefits of Virtual Play as a martial arts form of basketball. Organized optimization is becoming the blueprint for the new millennium player.

“Troy Miles knows what he is talking about people. The lessons you can learn from him personally, the Virtual Game of Basketball blogs and the book will not only benefit you on the court, but off. You may be thinking “does this stuff really work?”, well as a former D-I athlete who spent hours in the gym with Troy I can personally tell you it does work, and it works really well…”

Garrison Carr –Former Patriot League MVP



The word is steadily getting out there. Book sales have risen dramatically since the summer and quietly I’ve sold books in 23 countries. Still, I’m expecting “The Virtual Game of Basketball” to be the #1 basketball book on the planet. It’s the way…at least a way to a quantum leap forward as a ball player–even if your a top player.

It’s starting to sink in to those in the immediate “Virtual” vicinity. Other players and coaches are starting to recognize that there’s something different about a Virtual Player (VP). No way around the fact that, whoever embraces  the principles of Virtually seems to get waaaaay better– rather quickly.  Read more »

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.

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.
