Word on the Street.

The book no baller should be without.

——————————

Content: The Silent Assassin’s A-Z of basketball for dummies, striving to be the best b’ball dictonary in the world. (Missing a word or phrase? Mail us at silentassassin@live.se and we credit you for it.) And for all you lazy, no good, jelly button, cramp up, I can’t-play-worth-a-shit, crybabies out there, here’s the dictonary in alpabethic order. And …oh ja, the words that are marked with a (*), is the coach steps. Translation: They actually mean something on the court, and you can learn from them. Like defense stance and offense patherns, along side with different training drills. No need to thank me, we are all here to help, you the basketball challenged, to a better life.
