Chauncey Billups knows a thing or two about shooting. In fact, he was nicknamed Mr. Big Shot for his ability to knock down jumpers when it mattered most. He was the kind of player you wished was on your team because of his ability to perform under pressure, and the kind you feared if you were up against him in a game that came down to one shot.
Although Billups has since retired from the NBA, his passion for basketball remains stronger than ever. He’s currently an analyst for ESPN, and in his free time, he runs basketball clinics for youth players. Billups has a lifetime’s worth of knowledge of the sport, and we got the chance to chat with the sharpshooter to get his best advice. In the exclusive video below, Billups dishes on mental strength, his love for the game, and how the Wilson X basketball—a ball that tracks your shooting—can dramatically improve your offensive ability.
