There’s nothing quite like the summer for NBA players. It’s a chance for them to reset their minds from a rigorous 82 game regular season schedule and even expand their individual game for the next season.

For many NBA players such as guard Spencer Dinwiddie, Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and a few high-profile rookies, Olin Simplis is their go-to guy for offseason training and development.

Simplis is a certified sports performance coach and for the past 22 years has combined his Kinesiology major acquired from California Baptist University and his basketball expertise to develop athletes at all levels of the game.

Luka Samanic of the San Antonio Spurs has worked and trained with Simplis prior to getting drafted.

Samanic has all summer to tweak a few things in his game before entering training camp.
