LIFE IS JUST LIKE HAVING THE BALL IN YOUR HANDS………

SD TRAINING FEATURED IN NOTEABLE MAGAZINE

1. Take positive steps only. Stepping to the side will never get you to the basket/destination. The only time you take negative steps is when you’re getting double teamed or pressured; so back up, create space, and make a sound decision.

2. Stay on the balls of your feet. So much of basketball/life is based on reaction and adaptability. Being ready for the unexpected is pointless if you aren’t ready to adjust and attack instinctively.

3. READ YOUR DEFENDER /PEOPLE . Observe their angle and see how they’re trying to PLAY you.

4. Keep Your Chin Above Your Shoulders And Play/Live With Vision. Similar to a hockey assist, you need to see a play developing before it happens, this foresight will keep you one step ahead of the opposition.

5. Avoid Jumping In The Air To Make A Decision. Don’t let the defence/people force you into a decision that you don’t want to make. Stay poised and make a GROUNDED decision.

6. IGNORE THE CROWD.
Understand This- Never let someone affect you who spends their life in the stands as a SPECTATOR instead of a PARTICIPANT. It’s easy to critique from a “hindsight 20/20” perspective, that doesn’t take much intellect or bravery.
APPRECIATE the ones around you that are digging and grinding everyday just like you. I always loved hitting a Big 3 to silence the crowd. Making big shots transcends basketball; That’s Life!
