Renowned basketball coach Irv Roland fell in love with basketball early in life, feeling most at home on the court throughout high school and college. He then landed a job in the NBA with the Boston Celtics as a video intern and was drawn to the art of developing players of every age and skill level.

Roland has trained NBA players such as Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Chris Paul, James Harden, Kyrie Irving, Trae Young, Devin Booker and P.J. Tucker.

Speaking to SLAM Magazine in March 2020, Roland eluded to his core belief in basketball training that rings true across every video below.

“At the end of the day, the game is still a simple one. If you execute proper form and technique, you will improve.”
