Former NBA player teaches basketball and life skills

marcus-libertyMarcus Liberty was once the best high school basketball player in the country and went on to play in the NBA.

He now makes his home on the suncoast and will be giving free basketball clinics at the Frank G. Berlin Branch of the YMCA every Wednesday once the competitive leagues start on September 9, MySuncoast reports.

Liberty talks to ABC 7 about how he teaches the kids, ages 6 to 17, to be the best basketball player and the best person they can possibly be.

Liberty was drafted in 1990 by the Denver Nuggets with 15th pick in the second round. He played his first three seasons with the Nuggets, reaching a career high 9.3 ppg average in 1991-92 season.

Liberty finished his career with Detroit Pistons, and holds career averages of 7.3 ppg, 3.5 rpg in 17.1 mpg. He appeared in total of 267 games, starting in 63 of them.
