Marcus 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 is giving a free basketball clinic tomorrow  from 10 to 12 at the Frank G. Berlin Branch of the YMCA. If you can't make that one he also have free clinics every Wed at 6 pm once the competitive leagues start on Sept. 9.

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. He says work, work, work. He's a great believer in repetition, and what ever you're doing giving it your all.
