About the author:
Gary Pluff lives in Upstate New York with his wife and two kids and for more than 40 years has been a player, coach, and huge fan of basketball. An educator for more than 20 years, his love of coaching and teaching has taken him on an exciting journey living in Virginia, the Philippines, and Thailand.
Coaching his son Casey has motivated him to reflect on, and then to chronicle, all facets of the game of basketball that are necessary to become a great player.
Gary's desire to share with others and to help them achieve their basketball dreams resulted in his first book, The A-Z Basketball Book, What Every Player Needs to Know to Be Great at the Game!
