So what better kid to give it a go than our own Jeff Zevely who grew up dreaming he would someday play in the NBA.
Jeff's dream never came true but this story is a close second. Jeff went to CoachUp.com and booked a one on one coaching session with NBA Legend Alton Lister.
Lister played in the NBA for 17 years and coached 2 years in the NBA. These days he coaches 5-th to 9-th graders for 75 dollars an hour.
