Want to know the secret to becoming an elite basketball player?
Want to be “the go-to-player” on your team?
Okay well it is my pleasure to reveal to you, the secrets to becoming an unstoppable basketball player.
What Kind Of Player Are You?
First thing you need to do is put yourself in one of the categories. Which one of the following categories describe you the most.
Are you naturally basketball legends talented? You don’t really practice much but you can still ball.
Are you skillful? This means that your hours of practice have paid off and you didn’t have natural talent for the game of basketball without endless practice sessions.
Are you athletic? You’re that guy that can jump higher than everyone else, run faster than everyone else, or you’re quicker than everyone else.
Are you a scrub? You’re not good at basketball yet but you’re willing to develop yourself into the skillful and athletic categories.
The Best Players In The NBA
The second thing you need to do is understand what makes an unstoppable basketball player.
Currently (year 2014) the top NBA players are Lebron James, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant and the G.O.A.T. (greats of all time) is Michael Jordan.
What do they all have in common?
They all possess high level skill, athleticism, and basketball IQ.
So, if you want to be unstoppable you need to develop your skills, athleticism, and basketball IQ.
It’s not enough to have one or the other, you need to have them all.
What You Need To Do
Work on your game daily. You need to develop your skills by practicing daily. I’m not talking about going to the basketball court and shooting random three-pointers all day, instead, you need to go to the basketball court and work on your weaknesses and make your strengths even stronger.
Work on increasing your athleticism weekly. Incorporate vertical jump, quickness and speed, training into your weekly training routine. Athleticism will make all your developed skills look even greater.
Play as much basketball as possible and study the game of basketball. The more you expose yourself to basketball, the more you will understand it. Basketball IQ is simply the amount of understanding you have for how the game of basketball is played.
If you want to be an unstoppable basketball player you need to combine the attributes of high skillset, freaky athleticism, and unbelievable basketball IQ. These are all attributes that you can develop from scratch, which means you can transform yourself through hard work and determination.
