Mr. Torbett, as you know, is the CEO of Better Basketball, Inc. in Acworth, Georgia, USA. Rick might be best known as the creator of the Read and React Offense, but Better Basketball has a good number of player development instructional videos (DVDs) as well.
Rick Torbett has just released Dynamic Defense, a DVD set containing 5.2 hours of extremely well-thought out basketball defense training that looks to do for the defensive end of the court what Rick’s Read and React Offense did for the offensive end. (My review on the Dynamic Defense DVD set is being written up so watch for it).
The plan is to interview Rick via Skype or Facetime (video over the Internet), then break the interview into parts and post each part as a separate article here on Basketballogy.com in sections based on topic. For example, one post may focus on the Read and React Offense, another article might focus on Dynamic Defense, another on Player Development, and perhaps we’ll do a post on something aimed more at being fun like asking Rick to share some of his more memorable war stories of teaching basketball in the trenches.
I would like the interview to be very relevant to you, so please help me make it so.
There are 2 ways you can contact me.
First, you can use the comments area following this article.
Second, you can use the Contact Us form on this site if you want the conversation to be just between you and me.
As you give suggestions, please leave me your name and where you are from, so I can attribute the question to you. Example:
“Serge Ibaka of Oklahoma City asks: Rick, I am the 3rd youngest child of 18 siblings in my family, so I learned to box out at an early age. What other specific advise do you have for young players wanting to be dominate rebounders?”
I’m looking forward to hearing from you and making this interview with Rick really first rate.
