I learned at a very early age to not take long 2's, they are useless. And no, I never go hero ball, I always take them in stride. But I do love to shoot, always have, always will. Its literally the only thing I am naturally good at. haven't played much for years, but anytime I do, I knock em' down. The problem? My ball handling, timing, and everything else has slipped considerably.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
Conversely, I learned at a young age that if you can't shoot you better rebound and play defense. My 9th grade coach (my second year of organized basketball) taught me proper shooting form and also how to run...
I've never played organized ball, played a few adult leagues and people always ask me if I played College or High School. I have enough athleticism to rip through you're average guy, but lack the athleticism the be a factor against actual good players.
One thing you can't do is teach size or athleticism, so when that comes into play my effectiveness will go down, although I've handle some big *** dudes before that were really surprised.
How many people even live close enough to get a game going?
Nowadays, I just either work on my shot/moves and play pick-up games with whoever comes by the park. I'm more of a slashing guard now, but still a pretty good rebounder and defender (when I'm not simply crushed by ridiculous athleticism). I like to pass, but usually I'm playing 21.
Like I've said, I would love to get together and play but here are my downfalls:
1) I can't shoot
2) I can't dribble
3) I can't rebound or post up
4) I can't defend(and that's probably the best facet of my game)
5) I have never played organized basketball at any level besides some pickup lifetime games when I was a teen and lately at my work. I can't handle guys who are 10-20 years older than me and my stamina in that sense is crap. I am in decent shape overall(I work out 4-5 days a week) but I have back issues... But what the heck, if we can get something organized, I'll show up.
PSD Grammar Lesson #1:
