Do you love basketball so much that you want to be as great as Shaquille O’Neil? Rather than just wanting to be great, why don’t you learn techniques to help you get better? Keep reading to see how.
Practice shooting free throws. That’s a shot that appears simple but is actually difficult in reality. Practice frequently using these techniques. Hold the ball level with your head. Your eyes should be on the goal. You should be thinking about the ball going in the hoop. Shoot the ball how you imagine it going in.
Work on catching passes frequently. Try to catch all of the passes that are thrown to you. During a hectic game, every throw is not going to be perfect. Learn how to catch any sort of throw.
If posting up is what you’re doing, you have to have good footwork to get open for a shot. You must beat the opposing playing to an open spot. Once there, you have to firmly claim the area as your own. Practicing your footwork is important to master these skills.
Seek advice from your teammates about how you play the game. You may have a certain skill that you have perfected. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses will allow you to develop your skills to become an all around better player. Determine what others like about your game and fine tune those skills.
A great way to stay prepared at all times is to always face the ball. Passes and turnovers won’t take you by surprise because you will be more aware of what is happening on the court. Also, you need to stay aware of areas which might open up and give you an easy basket.
Now that you know what needs to be done, go practice and become the best player you can be. Be consistent and confident. Keep this advice in mind and show your skills off.
