Better Basketball FAQ

What videos does Better Basketball produce? Can I watch previews of the videos?

Better Basketball produce two things:

  1. The highly respected Better Basketball videos for player improvement, perhaps the finest videos in the sport to help players improve. These seven DVDs can be purchased individually, or as a set at a discounted price. The seven DVD are: Better 1-on-1 Offense, Better Shooting 2, Better Ball Handling, Better 1-on-1 Defense, Better Passing, Better Post Play, Scoring Without the Ball.
  2. The Read and React Offensive System, which is only available as a 6-DVD set. This unique offensive system is being called “groundbreaking” or “revolutionary” by coaches from all levels.

To learn about either the seven player development DVDs, or the Read and React Offense, this website offers a free preview of each DVD, as well as very detailed written information about each video. To view the free previews or read about the DVDs, use the dropdown menus located above this text, titled “VIDEOS/DVDS.”

What makes the Better Basketball videos special? Will they really help me improve?

The Better Basketball videos are often considered the best improvement tools in basketball, particularly by those that usually know best – coaches. The videos are easy to understand, yet extremely detailed with a logical learning progression. Each video is well produced, starting with the absolute basics before moving onto very advanced techniques.

If you carefully watch the Better Basketball DVDs, and then you put in the sweat to make the techniques a part of your game, you are absolutely going to improve.

What If I don’t have a credit card?

Not a problem, people pay every day by sending in payment through the mail. Please click here for our mail-order page.

Once I order, how long will it take for the DVDs to arrive?

It depends on the time of shipping you prefer. If you’re in the USA, regular mail takes about 5-14 days, depending on your distance from our offices in Atlanta. Priority mail, which costs $3.99 extra, takes 2-4 days. If you’re outside the USA, shipping can be 7-21 days, depending on your distance from the United States, the time of year, and simply how fast the mail is, which often is unpredictable with international shipping. In addition, if you need overnight delivery through UPS, please give us a call to process the order at 1-800-Better-B. This is quite expensive, but we can offer it.

What service do you use to ship the videos?

We ship using the postal service, and we pay a little extra for a delivery confirmation number so you can track your package.

I live outside the USA. Can I order?

Yes. In fact, we have customers in 99 countries all over the world. If you want to order, we will get the videos shipped to your door! (And if you know someone in Nepal, Tanzania, Panama, or any of the other places we don’t yet have customers, please tell them to order. We want to get to 100!)

What should I do if my package does not arrive?

After waiting the allotted amount of time that corresponds to your shipping method, please call or email us. We should have a tracking number for your package, and should be able to determine why it hasn’t arrived. Regardless of the reason, we will ensure you get the videos you pay for.
