    Great read!! Networking is very hard for me. I’m an introvert. I coach high school, my ultimate goal is to work with the NBA in some capacity.

      Just see if you can build a few meaningful relationships and help as many people as you can. The rest will take care of its self.

    Coach,
    Great advice . I feel the same way about networking , and value the meaningful relationships I have built rather than the ones I tried to establish when I was younger trying to get in. Thanks for the words.

      Thank you! I appreciate your comments. It’s almost like most people think “networking” means “meeting a bunch of people once”.

    Dave, I enjoy reading your emails on shooting. (You and I just exchanged an email on role reversal with player clients to make teaching stick) Today, for some reason, this specific email I discovered in my “Junk” folder. This may be the most valuable one I’ve read from you. I too was at NBA Summer League, but as a part of professional improvement with Pro Scout School and a Drew Hanlen Combine. The very networking skills of being humble, adding value, and starting out “for free” were repeatedly stressed – the very ideas you touched upon. I had a whole new world of learning explode in front of me; and I plan to go again next year. Thank you for your valuable insights on the physical and the professional levels. Priceless!
