What has Dallas Mavericks wing Josh Green been working on at Impact Basketball?
Joe Abunassar and his staff have created a plan for Green to improve his game, and they want him to work on the things he will be asked to do for the Mavericks next season. Abunassar had this to say about what Green is focusing on so far.
"The first month, we really just worked on ball-handling, finishing, and getting him more efficient."
The head of Impact Basketball also noted they are working on his 3-point shooting and attacking the rim at angles. Part of their program is getting in peak physical form, so Green is eating right and working hard on his craft.
In the piece, Green talks about a flaw in his shooting mechanics they found and corrected. He also notes his lack of confidence in dribbling the ball last season. His jump shot mechanics and form look better than ever during his training sessions at Impact.
There has also been an uptick in the 21-year-old wing’s confidence after his work with Impact Basketball. Nobody has ever questioned Green’s talent, but he has struggled in part because he has been hesitant on the court.
Improvement in his shooting, ball-handling, and playmaking coupled with an uptick in confidence could be the recipe for a breakout year from Josh Green, but what should MFFLs expect from the 6’5 wing during the 2022-2023 season?
