Ryan Pannone Quotes:

“Most people think that rebounding is just effort . . and offensive rebounding – that’s certainly a portion of it . . but [offensive rebounding] is broken down into different skills.”

[On sending 5 players to the glass] “It’s not something for us that we’ve been punished [for] because people are so worried about giving up 20 offensive rebounds. We go after the glass hard and physical . . we try to coach it every possession and every timeout.”

“In my opinion, you can’t be an elite rebounder if you’re a two-handed rebound guy. It’s just not going to happen . . [One-handed rebounding] is a skill that you have to drill.”

“Most of the time what you see on offensive rebounding is guys go after the ball but they’re a half-second, second late . . then the moment somebody touches them, they eliminate their effort . . these are things we try to build.”

“[Offensive rebounding] is a lot more than ‘go get it.’ It’s your timing, it’s understanding, it’s being able to have extension catches . . out of area rebounds, knowing how to wedge a guy underneath the hoop . . those are all really important skills.”

“Great defenders don’t get screened . . if you watch high level offensive rebounders, very rarely do they get boxed out.”

“It’s something . . that if you’re an under-talented team . . it’s a great way to generate extra possessions.”

“Most rebounders are not extension rebounders . . so you have to train them to be able to catch the ball from the side, high, low, with their arms extended.”

“At the end of the day, I find as a coach, there’s a few reasons you’re not doing something – you’re either not good enough to do it or you don’t care enough to do it.”

“Especially with wings and bigs . . you can run down from the NBA to Europe – the top rebounders get paid.”

“Most players want to get better . . improving your value is what we talk about in our player development sessions. For every player, if you improve your rebounding you improve your value.”

“Often times people are looking at assist numbers and assist-to-turnover ratios which is kind of an archaic stat. To me there’s no real value to assist-to-turnover ratios . . when you’re evaluating a team because at the end of the day it’s assist attempts.”

“When we’re talking assist numbers it’s ‘have I created a good shot?’ . . but you’ve got guys that are high assist guys that don’t want to get off the ball quick, that don’t want to make the simple play, the quick play.”

“You have to have, as a coach, the big picture of, we’re down by 25 . . it’s the fourth quarter . . how do we get better? . . what can we do that can help us come playoff time?”

“The confidence a coach can breathe into a player can change the trajectory of his career.”

“I try to give each player a daily routine for practice . . for 20-25 minutes before, for 20-25 minutes after . . I want them to do something every day.”

“It didn’t matter how tired he was, how hard he went, how much he slept, he made 60 shots every day to end practice . . over a 10-year career that’s a huge difference.“

“If you’re talking offense . . you have to talk the basic principles of offense before you add the pick and roll.”

  1. Your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch backups only include information and settings stored on your device. They do not include information already stored in iCloud such as Contacts, Calendars, Bookmarks, Notes, Reminders, Voice Memos4, Messages in iCloud, iCloud Photos, and shared photos. You can also import your Google Contacts with the help of iCloud. If you use iCloud you can transfer all your contacts as a whole. Also, if you use iCloud, not only you can import contacts from Gmail to iPhone but you can also sync Google Contacts to Mac as well. Remember that you cannot import files to iCloud in CSV format as iCloud does not support that format but as you can see there is a way around it. 6. On the pop-up, tap on Keep on My iPhone to keep your local Contacts on iPhone and tap on Save. Google has posted the detailed instructions here, and they’re fairly straightforward: https://jaredhxmb087531.wizzardsblog.com/10175831/how-import-list-of-emails-into-google-contacts If you don t have a cloud service associated with your phone, your contacts live on your phone s memory. But most people are working with iCloud, Google Contacts, Outlook or another contact repository that exists in the cloud. If that s your case, the contacts you see on your phone s address books are probably pulling information from one or several of those places. Dennis O Reilly How to transfer contacts from iPhone to Android using your Google account: Make sure your Google Account is connected to your iPhone or iPad using SSL, the recommended secure connection. Import Google Contacts into iOS is an operation that can’t be done directly as both services are very different from each other. Therefore, it is highly advised to follow each step carefully: At the end what worked for me is, I opened all groups (Gmail, iCloud, and other that I had) on my macbook. Then, I opened Contacts app on Mac. Then, I go to the group Gmail, click on one of the contacts and then just select all (CMD+A). Then I drag and drop all of these from the Gmail to iCloud (in the left sidebar there are all these groups listed, iCLoud, Gmail….). I do this for other groups as well, i.e. I transfer all of their contacts to iCloud. Then, I just delete contacts from all other groups except iCloud. And yes, in order for this mixup doesn t happen again, I just set the Default account on my iPhone to be iCloud .

  3. Ihr freies Spiel genießen Sie nicht nur am Computer, auch am Tablet oder am Smartphone ist dies möglich. Viele Casinoplattformen haben sogar eigene Apps im Angebot, die Sie sich auf am Gerät installieren können. Falls es keine gibt, öffnen Sie einfach den Browser und geben Sie die URL des Casinos ein. Sie werden automatisch auf die mobile Seite weitergeleitet und genießen dort Ihr Spiel. Wo auch immer Sie sich befinden, zocken Sie bis zum Umfallen. Bevor Sie Ihr Spiel in Casino online beginnen, lohnt es sich, mit den Informationen über die verfügbaren Casino-Spiele zu erfahren. Wie möchten Sie all das erzählen, damit Ihre Spielerfahrung angenehm sein wird. Nun, diese Aussage allein könnte wohl bereits ein wenig verwirrend sein. Schließlich gibt es beinahe keinen Software-Entwickler mehr auf dem Markt, der seine Angebote nicht auch kostenlos irgendwo zur Verfügung stellen würde. Und dennoch, manche Unternehmen haben die Szene bereits derart weiterentwickelt, dass es mittlerweile ganze Casinos gibt, die auf diese kostenlosen Angebote spezialisiert sind. Wir haben uns drei Entwickler herausgesucht, die für diesen Trend hauptverantwortlich sind: https://familyfarming.co.tz/community/profile/berylmahon99362/ Hi, bin noch Anfänger und wollte nach Tipps fragen:) Hallo zusammen, Nutze, wenn möglich, unser sicheres Bezahl- und Versandservice PayLivery. Neben einer komfortablen Abwicklung bietet dir PayLivery auch Sendungsverfolgung und Käuferschutz. Suchtgefahr Die neue Version hat sich ständig aufgehängt. Jetzt muss ich leider wieder komplett von vorne anfangen Online Casino Bonus Ohne Deposit – Die beliebten slots im casino Website Stell dir einfach Folgendes vor: Es können bei normaler Verteilung nicht mehr Münzen vorne Herunterfallen, als eingeworfen werden. Da aber immer wieder seitlich welche runterfallen,die nicht aus dem Ausgabeschacht kommen, hat der Betreiber einen Nettogewinn. Es gilt also der alte Casino Grundsatz : Am Ende gewinnt immer die Bank.!

  4. Vi kan väll också vända på frågan, varför skulle du vilja spela på ett komplext sätt – istället för ett enkelt? Det är så mycket tid som går till spillo vid en registreringsprocess, inte bara vid själva registreringen utan också vid insättningar och uttag. På vilket sätt tänker du då? Jo, i många fall kan du även behöva styrka din identitet hos spelbolaget vid en insättning om du inte spelar utan konto. Då behöver du oftast skicka in exempel: Det finns bra casinon utan spellicens i Sverige, men inte utan licens någonstans i världen. Detta beror på att spelleverantörer som NetEnt eller Microgaming inte hyr ut sina casinospel till bolag utan licens. Du kan inte använda ditt svenska BankID för att registrera dig för att spela på ett casino utan svensk licens. För att göra detta måste du använda dig av den registreringsmetod som just det casinot har. Det innebär i majoriteten av fallen att du fyller i en del personlig information om dig själv och exempelvis verifierar kontot med hjälp av din e-mailadress eller en lösenkod. Det går dock att använda ditt svenska bankID för att exempelvis göra insättningar eller uttag med Trustly. Du följer då instruktionerna efter att ha gjort ditt val av Trustly som betalningsmetod och använder din telefon för att godkänna transaktionen, precis som vanligt. https://aktionsbund-ahr.de/community/profile/mervinthiel7311/ Tjänsten är ett krav för alla nätcasinon med svensk licens men inte för casinon utan licens. Utländska spelsajter och nätcasinon är per definition att betrakta som casinon som inte kan erbjuda Spelpaus då de inte lyder under Spelinspektionen, den statliga myndighet som ser till att spelbolagen som fått en svensk spellicens beviljad agerar enligt spellagen. Andra marknader har givetvis sina egna specifika lagar och regler att ta hänsyn till. Som grädde på moset så sparade dessutom casinot själva en massa arbetstid då de slipper verifiera dig med tråkiga dokument som elfaktura och bankuttag. Helt klart en vinnande situation för alla inblandande. Idag så finns det fler casino med BankID & vi på CasinoWings håller dig uppdaterad med alla casinon som hakar på denna populära trend framöver.
