The Pro Training Center and its founder, David Thorpe, have been helping professional basketball players since 1999.  Thorpe is considered the “Godfather” of player development in America.  He’s the first person to run a business helping players improve and his training dates all the way back to 1993. His client List includes hundreds of players who have appeared in every major professional basketball league in the world. His first client was Udonis Haslem.  Then an undrafted rookie trying to make the Miami Heat after playing a season in France, came to Coach Thorpe seeking help. He went on to play 16 seasons there and has enjoyed an amazing career where he overachieved more than any other undrafted player has.

PTC and Coach Thorpe also helped Luol Deng in a contract year where he excelled greatly.  He then earned the largest Bulls contract in franchise history (at the time). Kevin Martin was a PTC client for his entire 12-year career and he retired as the second highest earning player drafted in the 26th slot in the NBA history behind Vlade Divac. The same can be said for another long-time client Courtney Lee in the 22nd draft slot. Those are just a few of our success stories as our goal is to continue to help players reach their goals.



 "I first met Coach Thorpe as a 19 year old college player at a small D-1 college, and I could shoot the ball. And score. Simply put, he changed my life, more as a man than as a player. I used to call him my "Florida dad" because that's how my own dad in Ohio saw him. He was a mentor, not just a coach, and now he is one of my most trusted friends.  What he taught me on the court over 15 years, yes, from that first summer in 2002 to the day I retired from the NBA after 12 seasons in 2016, he was my guy, helped me grow my game nonstop. I was always in learning mode. I loved getting his texts 4 times a week to teach and inspire me, I missed them so much when I was injured and couldn't play or practice. But what he taught me off the court is what means the most to me. My wife and I asked him to speak at our rehearsal dinner, so our families could experience what I got to for so long. I'd like to tell everyone reading this on the PTC website what I tell every young player in person that I meet when I see them training with him. Just do what this man says, trust his guidance fully. In basketball, you will find your best game. And you will be the player and the person your parents hope you to be. We all need help in that regard.

It's pretty simple for me. I was a McDonald's All-American, a two-time National Champion in college, and a lottery pick in the NBA. But then I suffered a serious knee injury and lost all my confidence as a player. From there my friend and teammate Joakim Noah told me about Coach Thorpe, I flew down to Florida, and the rest is history. That was over a decade ago, yet I'm still in this league and he's still the man who texts me what I should be doing every day. I've played for many amazing coaches, and some bad ones too--Coach Thorpe is my rock, my most trusted friend when it comes to my playing career.  He tells me the truth, and I say "yes sir."

"From learning every small part of the game I could ever imagine, plus a lot more, to having a plan daily that helped me organize my entire workout routine, Coach Thorpe changed my basketball life forever. But he was more than a coach to me, something I realized when I graduated from Harvard, having completed my basketball career. When I moved to LA to pursue my career as a writer, I recognized how much I missed his presence in my life as a mentor. So I called him, and I am so glad I did. We are still in touch and he's still advising me, not on my game but on life. I have amazing parents, still, having someone who I can turn to for guidance beyond them is special. When he told me he was going to do this online training I immediately said "wow that is such an amazing idea, so many people can benefit from your teaching now."

"Watching a basketball game with David Thorpe at any level is like riding shotgun with a surgeon in the operating room. He is one of the rare people who works in the sport who can combine a deep and versed knowledge of the science of it all while at the same time provide cutting big-picture perspective. It is in those tucked gray areas where he shines, not just in improving his students' performance but in letting his readers and listeners in on many of the secrets of why it all matters."



Coach Pete was a freshman player at the school coach Thorpe volunteered at in the early 2000s. He became a three-year Varsity starter and was Captain his final two seasons, while scoring over 1,000 points in his prep career. Pete then went on to play in college and was a four-year starter at Florida College and a three-year Captain. He led the team to a national title game and was a three-time All-American there. Multiple surgeries ended his pro career early so he got into high school coaching and achieved immediate success.  He won three different county and district titles in his first five seasons and served as Head Coach for a hybrid high school/post grad team in Florida that finished 22-7. The team was so successful it placed all five post grad players into scholarship positions in college and one senior accepted a walk-on invitation to a top five team in America last year. The other four seniors are returning to play this season, with two players already being recruited heavily by Division 1 programs. Pete has also been assisting Coach Thorpe with their professional players for the past three years.  PTC is lucky to have Pete and we’re excited to have him as a critical piece in what we do here.
