Want to know the secret to becoming an elite basketball player?
Do you want to be the “go-to player” on your team?
Alright, I have the pleasure to reveal to you the secrets to becoming an unstoppable basketball player.
What kind of gamer are you?
The first thing you need to do is put yourself in one of the categories. Which of the following categories describes you the most.
Are you naturally talented? You don’t really practice a lot but you can still play ball.
Are you skillful? This means that your hours of training paid off and you had no natural talent for basketball without endless training sessions.
Are you athletic? You are that guy who can jump higher than everyone else, run faster than everyone, or you are faster than everyone.
Are you a scrub? You are not yet good at basketball, but you are ready to develop in the skillful and athletic categories.
The best players in the NBA
The second thing you need to do is figure out 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 G.O.A.T. (all-time greats) is Michael Jordan.
What do they all have in common?
They all have top basketball skills, athleticism, and IQs.
So if you want to be unstoppable you have to develop your basketball skills, athleticism, and IQ.
It is not enough to have one or the other, you must have them all.
What do 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 at random three points all day, but on the contrary, you have to go to the basketball court and work on your weaknesses and make your strengths even stronger.
Work on increasing your athleticism every week. Make vertical jump, quickness and speed, training part of your weekly training routine. Athletics will make all your developed skills even greater.
Play basketball as much as you can and study basketball. The more you expose yourself to basketball, the more you will understand it. Basketball IQ is simply the level of understanding you have of how the game of basketball is played.
If you want to be an unstoppable basketball player, you have to combine the attributes of a high skill set, scary athleticism, and amazing basketball IQ. These are all attributes you can develop from scratch, which means that you can transform yourself through hard work and determination.
Don’t be good. Don’t be awesome. Be unstoppable.
