A huge step in raising your game from being a good player to a great player is decision making. Phil's vision and basketball IQ were off the charts. In a school with a history of GREAT point guards, Phil Ford was the greatest! Learn his process for decision making that made him the guy people wanted to play with and be like. Decision making has two components. The first is what decision to make, the second is to know when to make it. Nobody understands this better than Phil Ford. This is why Coach Smith put so much trust in him and knew when he called for four corners with Phil as his point guard the game was over. Phil was an exceptional ball handler and scorer but what made him great was his ability to know when to dribble, when to pass, and when to shoot.
Arguably one of the best ball handlers to step foot on the court of North Carolina. Phil became one with the ball. If he had the ball in his hands you were not going to steal it plain and simple. Go through the drills that made his opponents fear him when he decided to put the ball on the court and drive to the basket.
Phil was the leading scorer in Carolina history until Tyler Hansbrough broke it. A great outside shot with the ability to seemingly drive at the basket and score at will. His shot was the envy of basketball players growing up.
