In our daily life, basketball is a sport that everyone loves very much, and there are also many fans around us who love to watch NBA and CBA and have their favorite stars. When we watch a basketball game, we really like flashy star turns and dreamy dance moves, but for us regular fans, it's very difficult to achieve, and solid basic skills are last word.
For example, Chinese men's basketball team participated in NBA Summer League this summer and achieved a record of 1 win and 4 losses. There is only a gap between physical fitness of players and NBA players, and more importantly, lack of solid base skills. The players participating in summer league are mostly rookies. Compared to those NBA stars, their skills are still very rough, but they can't beat Chinese men's basketball team. This shows how important training in basic skills is.
Just like in basketball, main training is dribbling. Dribbling is not same as hitting ball. . hand should follow ball, height of dribble should not be too high, otherwise it is easy to intercept it to opponent. If you are a beginner, you should pay attention to balance between left and right hand. Do not dribble with right hand only, left hand is equally important.
When we have a certain basis of dribbling, we can increase it, for example, increase dribbling and passing with left hand, alternating left and right hand dribbling, combining frontal change of direction with crotch dribbling. There are a lot of changes in dribbling and we can get really bored when we practice, but you can't excel at dribbling and your upper limit won't be high.
The second point worth talking about is throw. Scoring is foundation of basketball. Throwing ball into basket results in scoring points. But when we usually play basketball, we often see some non-standard shooting methods, such as "crooked handle" and "catapult". Good shooting percentage, but not recommended in shooting exercises.
This year FMVP Leonard shot really badly when he first entered league. In his first summer with Spurs, legendary Spurs shooting coach Chip England improved his shooting technique and gradually Leonard also hit a corner three-pointer and he also practiced middle range and even earned a reputation as a "young master".
One of keys to proper shooting posture is one of keys to proper shooting posture. Pay attention to these aspects in correct shooting position. In standing position, right foot usually steps forward and knee needs to be slightly bent to better feel ball. In our daily training, some people like jump shots and some people like jump shots. There is no right shooting position, only one that suits you best. If our shooting has reached a certain level, at this time we can try to catch and shoot after practice, use fake shots after catching ball, and even throw shots on go.
Basketball training requires hard work. I think everyone heard words of Kobe. Have you ever seen Los Angeles at four in morning? Every superstar has solid basic skills, and we also want to play basketball well, because when ball hits basket, beauty is beautiful.
