There is no secret.
We want to believe there is a secret.
We want to believe basketball players have achieved greatness or become better because of a secret.
Basketball has fundamentals.
Skills that are important to succeeding as a player in this game.
Ballhandling. Finishing, Footwork. Shooting. Stance. Balance. And more..
As you head into this off season; what skills do you need to focus on to be better next time you play?
What game situations do you need to improve?
Do you need to practice or train more?
Become extremely focused on what needs to be done to be a better player.
So much of practicing the fundamentals or the things you need to get better is very mental too.
You have to focus.
Pay attention to details.
Repeat it daily when it is boring. This is a big one.
Mentally you have to:
1. Don't think about what people say about you.
2. Act and work more than you talk about it.
3. Do not compare your game to others.
Everyday you step on the court have a plan. Have a vision of where you want the practicing and training to go.
Pound that ball. Shoot more shots. Play pickup. Train with a coach or trainer.
Do the work every single day and the result will come.
