Basketball Basics

On - Basketball Basics by Howard Marcus.
This is a good book covering basic stuff. I think this is a good book for a novice coach, especially coaching at the youth level. It covers all the various aspects of the game with some drills. It has some coaching-specific chapters on "Why Are You Doing This (coaching basketball)?", "Coaching Techniques", "The Basic Coaching Sequence", "Season Starts-Tryouts", "Organizing Practices and Setting Priorities", "Game-Day Coaching", "Coaching Junior High and Recreational League Teams", and "Parents and Children". Although the book is somewhat out-dated (copyright 1991), the fundamentals still hold true today.

A very good book for Junior-High and youth recreational basketball coaches.
