Let’s talk about basketball, non NBA/NCAA/League. As in, what do YOU play?
I prefer playing outdoors, but it’s just easier to find a bunch of people in pickup games at my school gym.
Best positions: Centre/Power Forward. I’m 6’0, 166, which is good enough to do a decent job deep in the paint. My hops suck, but I can still get those boards.
Worst positions: Anywhere on the perimeter. My shooting is really inconsistent, and i’m definitely not an outside shooter.
Strengths: I am a BEAST at reading offensive plays while i’m on defence. As long as it’s anything from 3v3 to 5v5. Plus I have a huge wingspan, so I find interceptions easy.
Weaknesses: Everything…else :(. My handles suck, which I need to improve. I’m fine with driving down the right lanes, but i can’t do the same for the left lanes. To improve this, I now dribble only with my left hand, trying to get it in shape.
Anyone have tips on how to improve my shot outside the key? I liked Ray Allen’s mini game, +1/-2, where you keep shuffling, and for every shot you sink, you get a point, and for every miss, you lose 2 points. The object is to reach 10 points. Also, what do I work out to get more power in the shot, especially jumpshots? Is it mainly triceps/shoulders?
Talk, discuss. :nunchuck:
