Kevin Whitted is the founder and Master Trainer at Kevin Whitted Basketball Services (KWBS), a year-round player development curriculum and training camp. Kevin brings experience to the court as both a player and a coach. After playing in the NBA for the Dallas Mavericks and playing professionally overseas, Kevin has gone on to work with other top professional athletes, including LeBron James, Amare Stoudemire, and Vince Carter.
The 1990 McDonald’s All-American has coached at all levels during his career. At KWBS, Kevin works to create "positionless basketball players" who know how to play all over the floor. KWBS's curriculum focuses on fundamental skills, including, hand-eye coordination, footwork, balance, and shooting mechanics. "We try to make our players students of the game vs. just basketball players," he explains. His “whole-player” approach trains athletes physically, emotionally, and mentally based on his five points of success (P)reparation, (O)rganization, (W)ork, (E)ffort, and (R)esponsibility.
Kevin is a sought-after speaker on player development and has led clinics for coaches across the globe, including the New York Knicks-affiliate the Westchester Knicks and the Danang Dragons in Da Nang, Vietnam. He also speaks to middle and high school youth, providing them with the motivation and tools needed to succeed on and off the court.
