Do you want to know the secret to becoming an elite basketball player?
Do you want to be “the favorite player” of your team?
Okay, it’s my pleasure to reveal to you the secrets to becoming an unstoppable basketball player.
What kind of player are you?
The first thing you have to do is put yourself in one of the categories. Which of the following categories best describes you?
Are you naturally talented? You don’t really practice much, but you can still play.
Are you skillful? This means that your hours of practice have paid off and that you didn’t have a natural talent for the game of basketball without endless practice sessions.
Are you athletic? You are that guy who can jump higher than others, run faster than others, or you are faster than others.
Are you a scrub? You are not good at basketball yet, but you are willing to develop yourself in the skillful and athletic categories.
The best players in the NBA
The second thing you need to do is understand what makes a basketball player unstoppable.
Currently (year 2014) the best players in the NBA are Lebron James, Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant and the GOAT (greats of all time) is Michael Jordan.
What do they all have in common?
They all possess high-level skills, athleticism, and basketball IQ.
So if you want to be unstoppable, you need to develop your basketball skills, athleticism and IQ.
It is not enough to have one or the other, you have to have them all.
What do you need to do
Work on your game every day. You need to develop your skills by practicing daily. I’m not talking about going to the basketball court and shooting random 3s all day, but you should go to the basketball court and work on your weaknesses and further strengthen your strengths.
Work on increasing your athleticism weekly. Incorporate vertical jump, sprint and speed training into your weekly training routine. Athletics will make all your developed skills look even better.
Play as much basketball as you can and study the game of basketball. The more you expose yourself to basketball, the more you will understand it. Basketball IQ is simply how much understanding you have of how the game of basketball is played.
If you want to be an unstoppable basketball player, you need to combine the attributes of a high skill set, uncanny athleticism, and an incredible basketball IQ. These are all attributes that you can develop from scratch, which means that you can transform yourself through hard work and determination.
Do not be good. Don’t be cool. be unstoppable
