The NBA season is finally here! Our Alphas were hard at work all summer getting some of the League's best players ready for tipoff. Over the next few days, we'll drop a series of blog posts that showcase some of the great names that have worked with our Alphas.
Starting off right here at home, our first post of the series features the Atlanta based The-Skill-Factory, also known as "TSF."
TSF founder Josh Burr started the company with an eye towards developing the youth. However, it eventually spawned into something much greater. In addition to the private individual and group training sessions they hold, one thing TSF prides itself on is offering game-style competition that simulates a 48-minute NBA game. The "Pro/Elite Skill Sessions" as they're called run throughout the summer and are lead by head trainer Jeremiah Boswell. The sessions are always oozing with top talent, including a group of Atlanta Hawks players, a slew of overseas guys, and even a couple NBA All-Stars. The program continues to grow each summer. Most recently, Wizards guard and 2014 Vegas Summer League MVP Glen Rice Jr. came to TSF to work on his game and prepare for the upcoming season.
