Okay let us talk about distance shooting.
By distance shooting we mean something that is beyond about fifteen feet or so. The free
throw line if fifteen feet. You start getting out into the top of the key area in this little
area here and you are starting to get into more distance. You are coming up to a three
point line and for the pros it is back even about even this much further. So you really
need to when you are distance practice shooting warm up first it is a little difficult to
come out cool out of the locker room and you are practicing and just start throwing up
from behind the three. You want to ease your way into it and start closer to the rim and
then move back. But keep in mind you want the distance shooting that your legs come
into effect and that is why we do all the conditioning drills, back squats and lifting
of the weights. So we can get our legs on the rust and square up to that basket and
use them to push off and help use push that ball. So even though we are using our arms
and our wrist the further out we get because of this and so make sure when you come up
and shoot behind that three that you are really using your legs. Also your wrist and all the
things that we have talked about before. Keeping our elbow in, our wrist cocked and really
use your legs. Let’s see if I can get one.
CeCe I think that you say a lot of things- CeCe!
[knocks on table] Let me say something
to you really quickly. It’s not supposed
to be any animosity or, like, a rigged moment. This ain’t no
Maury Povich-type [bleep]. It’s okay to spill, you know,
like, little–little tea, but real family secrets
that are close– supposed to be closed
to the vents that people are really
gonna be affected by– it could disrupt
the family dynamic– that’s some [bleep] that maybe
you should keep to yourself. – I get you,
but this whole big to-do of, oh, it’s this
big family secret– it’s not a big family secret. It’s not a huge deal, and because of the way
OG delivered it, it made it look worse
than it sounded like at the conversation
of our dinner. – CeCe, I think OG was able to
throw out several things that she said you told her. The Thomas part–
she knew it was gonna be a jab. That’s why she used it
in that moment. So therefore, it’s kind
of strange that you don’t know. – The one conversation
I had with her about that, which I thought, at the time,
was harmless, he was sitting right there.
We were all together. – But it sounds terrible. It’s not anyone’s to share, especially if it can be used
in a negative way. – I’ve been in this family
for ten years. I’ve never, ever in my life
had a issue with Byron–never. So this, talked about him
behind his back… – But when you say that,
it’s, like, blaming me. – Every argument that our family
has had, you have started. – Oh, girl, please.
I am done. You know what, Kristen?
– I hope you’re done. – You know what? This is the last time
you’re gonna see me, okay? So, good.
– [gasps] – I don’t even care anymore. – I know you don’t care,
but that’s the problem. – You know, let me finish!
– I want you to care. – This is what
I’m talking about. I don’t care if you or
any of his kids don’t like me. I don’t care.
I don’t care! – Yeah, but saying that
is terrible. – Wow. CeCe’s over [bleep] here
talking about severing ties
with all the family. Like, this is [bleep] worse
than I imagined. – You don’t care if his kids
don’t like him? You’re good with that? – Yeah! – OG might’ve started the fight, but that damn CeCe
lit the match. – CeCe, I have a question
for you. When wedding day comes, and you look around, and none of his kids are there, how is that gonna make you feel? ♪ ♪ – I don’t even care. It’s more about
how Byron would feel. – Okay, so how do you
expect my husband to show up at a union when his wife has been
blatantly not invited? – That’s between you guys. – Let’s stop playing. The problem stems
from CeCe and Kristen. Let’s not just
put it off on you. So you guys have to fix it. – I don’t know how to fix it,
to be honest. – I tried.
It’s what it is. – This is getting out of hand, so the only thing left to do
is to call Byron. This is my last resort. I gotta figure out a way
to save my family. – I’m not gonna beg, plead,
try to act any different. I’m just gonna move on
and get married and not worry about it.
(somber guitar chord) – My first reaction was, “I’m gonna leave my daughter behind.” And then my next thought was, “I’ve gotta tell the team.” – After he told us, I felt, personally, I felt like it was just bigger than basketball. There’s no point of being mad on the basketball court, when, you know what I mean, like there’s bigger issues. – My relationship with the guys, I’ll never forget ’em. I think one of the things they definitely learned this year though is that we all can’t do this by ourselves. I’m not gonna quit. I’m gonna be here to give my daughter driving lessons, walk her down the aisle, all that stuff. Death is not a option to me. I’m not going anywhere. (uplifting synth music) (applause) – Everyone welcome Coach Danny O’Fallon, y’all! (hooting, applause) Whoo! You, you got me! Whew! Your determination is amazing. Where does it come from? – Honestly, it comes from my family. I grew up in an athletic family, from baseball players to basketball players and just the fun of playing sports and the determination to do your best whatever court, field, whatever you’re on, has always been part of our…
– Yeah! – Our motto. – Wow! That’s why you’re an amazing human, all right. Well, what made you have, what do you think made you have such an exceptional season? – My team, I was fortunate enough to have a great group of kids my first year there. When we won the title was only my second year at the school. – Wow. – And I was able to get
a great group of kids the first year. When we lost in the second round in the previous year, when they came back, their determination was just everything. And, you know, it was a kind of a situation where they just didn’t want to
take ‘no’ for an answer. It just kind of followed suit throughout the day. – How do you think that the team’s success helped you battle cancer? – Our motto, throughout the year, has always been, “Be about one-and-oh.” My players are not just players. They’re student-athletes, and they understand that
they’re students first and athletes second. – Amen, yeah. – And, so our motto being “one-and-oh,” is not just to win the game, it’s to win the day. And, you know, seize the day, seize the moment, and even when things like, situations like cancer get you down, you just do your best to battle through, and they helped me, along with my family helped me, every day, they’re all about being one-and-oh. – Do you think it helps, being productive, still, and just going on about
your business, so it doesn’t slow you down?
– Oh, yes, absolutely, I mean, yes, there’s days that I just can’t. But every chance I get, with, the love and care from my wife and my daughter, and of course, my guys, they’re like, “Coach,
you need to be here,” and I’m like, “Okay, I’m on my way, “I’m on my way.” – Yeah. – You know, they’re everything to me. – It’s beautiful, that’s beautiful. We know Coach O’Fallon loves his team but they love him, too, and wanted to tell him in person. Come on out, boys! (hollering, applause) Yeah! (whistling, clapping) – What’s up, Coach? – Oh, no! – Oh, guys… – What’s going on? – Aww. (applause) (whistling) – Oh, no… – Hi Coach, how you doing? – Oh my God! – What’s up, Coach? (clapping) – Y’all are such great guys! Like, you ran out and hugged! I hope my boys are like you. Okay. Tell Coach what he means to you. Why’d you want to be here? Tell him what he means to you. – Ever since day one. We didn’t have the best
patch at first, (laughs) but we got to learn and got real good with each other. At first, you know, how I wasn’t the best at taking criticism well (laughs) but… – No teenager is, by the way, but we all were, we all were you. (laughter) – But he pushed me where I didn’t think I could be pushed. Like, he seen that I had a lot of potential in me, and I didn’t see it, at first, and he just pushed me so hard, I, first I, you know, I didn’t really like, I was like, well, this guy, new coach, he’s trying to tell me
to do all this stuff. But it worked out all in the end, because– – He pushes you because
he believes in you, and he sees something that
you might not see, yet. – Yeah. – Yeah. So, has this, what do you admire about Coach O’Fallon? – He’s always been like, a great person. Even when he first came into the gym. I already noticed that he had a passion for basketball, you know? And the, most of the guys here have a passion for the game, too, and he’s always been like a second father to me. I always seen him as that. And then, his diagnosis and stuff, it was kind of sad. There was days when he couldn’t even, he couldn’t even stand, and he still managed to come in, which is really amazing of him. And he’s shown me that anything, that you can, with dedication and hard work you can overcome anything. (applause) – What does this mean to you? I mean, to make an impression on teenagers is already hard enough. And you’ve made an, an extreme one. – Well, like I said earlier, With these group here, just these individuals right here, they’re so special to me. And we, our motto, besides being one-and-oh, is that we always talked about being family. That’s you know, they are, they, till the day they go off and venture off into
other parts of the world, it’s like that, they’re always gonna be my family. They always know as long as I’m around, they can always reach out to me, and vice-versa. Matter of fact, it was so funny, I was having to think about
you guys this weekend, and I was just like, “I gotta text my guys, “just to see how they’re doing.” (audience member coos) But they, I mean, it’s been an honor and a pleasure to be a part of these, these young men’s lives.
– Yeah. (applause) Well, there’s someone else here who can’t wait to meet Coach O’Fallon. Come on out, Kobe! (whooshing) (uproarious applause) (fanfare) (boisterous applause) – That’s right! – Hi! How ya doing, Coach? – It’s a pleasure. – Oh, my gosh! – What’s up, young man? What’s up? What’s up? What’s up, man, how ya doing? What’s up? Yo, what’s going on, back here? What’s happening? (applause) – Oh my gosh! (laughs) I wish, wait, come on over here! Can y’all, you can sit right between. – All right. – Right here? – Oh my, okay, I wish we had a slow, like, motion camera on you, my man. He went, he heard me go, “Ko…” and he went, “What?” (laughter) He was like, he was so excited. What do you want to say to Coach O’Fallon? – I mean, it’s just extremely inspirational, when we talk about, sometimes we get caught up in the world of sports and thinking about the significance of each game, but not understanding that the game is, pales in comparison to life. And the lessons that we teach as coaches, and the inspirational message that he’s created for his players, the determination, the fighting, the belief, is something that’s, that’s way more valuable than
anything that you can learn from hitting the game-winning shot, or winning the NBA championship, or winning the high-school championship, whatever the case may be. So it’s just a true inspiration, man. – Thank you. – Any of y’all have any questions for Kobe, I’m just saying… (laughter) – Y’all caught me off guard. I was not– (laughter, clapping) Y’all told me Martha Stewart was gonna be here, it was like, you didn’t say nothing about Kobe, come on. Got my hands sweaty. – “My hands are sweating!” (laughs) (applause) No, but here’s the thing: he started out just like y’all, on a team, growing up playing ball, and you never know where you, I mean, I did the same thing in my field, you never know. It doesn’t matter where you come from, it doesn’t matter how much money you have, that does not limit your dreams. And you can accomplish anything. And it doesn’t matter what’s
going on, you can do it. (applause)

I met Carl… I moved on with my life. And… I didn’t–I wanted

to think that, “You’re so close

“Are you still communicating?” – With him?
– Yeah. – Yeah, just respect.
I understand. – Yeah, but I always felt
so [bleep] about it. You know, I wanted

I just felt bad about that ’cause I know
you were in a tough position. My relationship with Chad
was, um, crazy. [chuckles] When it was great,
it was super great. But on the flipside of that, we, you know,
had some dark moments. When domestic violence starts
playing into your relationship, you got to [bleep] go. You know, you can always
call me for anything. – I have a habit of, like,
saying “stepmom,” like…I’m like,
“ex-stepmom,” but most people know

I’m in Miami.” [both laugh] – Miami vibes.
– I know. I love you. – I love you, too.
– Look at you. I cannot even deal with this.

too long to be doing this,

it just was–it was bad. So I just want to take
accountability for anything that I may have said that
was negative about Shaniece that was viewed as negative. But I just wanted to apologize
to you and to Shaniece. I did send her a message, because I’m like,
“This is just a lot.” And I love that girl,

something negative, I don’t want her to feel like
I don’t love her, ’cause I do. And I don’t want you
to feel like that either. – I just don’t understand,
at what point in our friendship you felt like
it was okay to, like, bring my daughter into it. It’s like my child
