I am Curro Segura, basketball coach, and this is your home.
I want it to be a meeting point, open to interaction with all of you.
I will express my ideas about basketball, any kind.
Technical or tactical concepts and psychological springs. Of any competition National or International, we can talk and discuss.
Wherever there are two hoops and a ball there is interest and an analytical look.

TRAJECTORY

Mobility has not been an obstacle for me, it is inherent in the life of the coach. I went to Tenerife to be an assistant to Pedro Martínez, one of the reference technicians in national basketball in the last two decades and from whom I learned a lot. That year helped me to understand what the LEB League was and to win a chance at Menorca Basquet. I have an unforgettable memory of the island.

I spent five years, we did three fabulous seasons in the LEB, with 70% victories and we achieved a historic promotion to the ACB to the third. I completed an accelerated master’s degree in all aspects of basketball. We created an elite club structure practically from scratch and involved an island of 80,000 inhabitants who felt represented by what Menorca did. That identification with the public, that the fans never go home disappointed by the attitude of their team, has always haunted me. We achieved permanence in the ACB, even.

My later experiences at the ACB were in Santiago de Compostela and Granada. The experience was priceless. We helped create a club in Santiago from scratch, which is now a reference in Spanish basketball for the way things are done, and I was faithful, despite the many problems that ended with its dissolution, with the team of my land, The one I always dreamed of training and where i would like to come back in the future.

It was the turn of knowing the European competition with Unicaja. A club of the highest European level that allowed me, as an assistant to Jasmin Repesa, to work in the exhaustive preparation of matches against the best players on the continent. I learned about the Euroleague, something that filled me up and that helped me to see the requirement of the summit, to work every day with and against top quality basketball players.

Crossing borders to train gives me no qualms and I did not hesitate to go to Kuwait to lead his national team or China to work with the Jilin Northeast Tigers.

Basketball is my passion and my way of life, he has commanded me since I was very young and I have been carried away by him. It is the reason for this website, to share with you all what I often stay for me. I have trained in all categories, from the EBA to the Euroleague. And in every game I watch, every training I conduct, there is always some relevant detail.

I am not even a veteran, but since last century I have been leading basketball teams. I got to debut in the ACB as a player with the Oximesa of my city when I was 18 after having militated in their lower categories, but soon I went to the benches after graduating in Physical Education and Sports Science.

I started to lead senior teams while I was a doctor and the poison definitely stung me. I started with 24 years in the EBA League, in Motril and Granada. With 27 I achieved the ascent to LEB II (now Adecco Plata) with the Linense de Cádiz.

During this time I worried to continue with my basketball training, to expand contacts and horizons. To be aware of what is happening in the market, I frequently went to the United States, to learn about the NBA summer leagues. Finding unrecognized American players in Europe can be a reef if you arrive a month earlier than another, if your sports director suggests someone you already know. But for this you have to sow and be present in the places where important things are cooked.

After arriving at the ACB with Menorca I had the honor of doing so with the historic CAI. Zaragoza, a leading place in national basketball, who knows what it is to win titles, had 12 years without having a team in the first Spanish category. It was a complicated challenge. There was a lot of pressure, a lot of desire to get it in a hobby understood as few in Spain. We managed to climb bluntly, directly to be LEB champions. It was strenuous, but it was worth seeing a crazy city.

Two other optics with which to observe basketball, two other ways of working and living, both very enriching. Always with the orange ball as the center.

Basketball spreads my life, seeing it from the coach’s eyes is fascinating, good times always outweigh bad times. Spending hours on track work or viewing is not an obligation. And this website is a meeting point for everyone you like.

1-TO-1

One of the reasons why I dared to create the web is the interaction with the fan. I would like you to suggest topics to write and respond to your specific concerns. What doubts do you have? What would you like to know? Here I will be to answer them, without intermediaries.

GALLERY

Almost two decades of career on the benches give a lot. Images for the memory of each site I have directed. There have been many, but there is room for more. Here is a compilation of my career as a trainer in images. There are always holes to fill.
