Like the Shawn Marion case, or the AD case. Maybe a kid with obvious flaws will still make it.
But as a coach and parent, is that the chance I want to take?
Yes, I agree. That one girl, Deja, whose father posted here is a good example.
She was a very athletic, motivated girl but she was doomed to failure because the techniques she was being taught were so poor.
As for AD, I tend to think (hope) they will correct her game as she develops and correct her serve. They are obviously doing a lot right so far.
