NBA and WNBA players crave his knowledge and energy for getting them better, and seeing what other coaches miss.

“The third part that makes him unique is that a lot of people acquire knowledge and then hold onto it. He’s willing to impart it to others, to help others reach their goals and become what they want to become, either a better player or a better skill development teacher.”

Ganon has worked with and shared the court with Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and many more.

He has been to 45 countries and counting working with players and coaches on their game, Ganon was able to find some time ins his schedule after returning from China to connect with me.
