Offensive Basketball notes:
Dribble only to gain an advantage. No purposeless (P-DRIBBLES)
Always be on balance – (shooting, passing, stopping etc)
Take good shots – Ones you would be willing to bet on.
Race ball from 3 point line to 3 point line (Extra points if you use rolling crossovers)
Develop first step quickness without travelling. Ball and stepping foot work together.
Play low for many reasons.
Develop 2 foot stop (for balance and power) especially in the paint.
Use fakes – shots and passes (This is an art – practice)
Make sharp hard cuts. – Learn to push off on outside of your sneakers.
Don’t play near the boundary lines. You might get electrocuted.
Visualize ball going into hoop etc. Positive, confident thoughts.
Remind a teammate of something before it happens.
Encourage your teammates.
Say thank you, hello and goodbye to your coaches.
That’s enough for now.
