Can you dribble equally well with either hand?
The above are just a sample of the basic skills I would expect a fundamentally sound basketball player to have.
Unfortunately, few players today have enough of these skills.
However, I GUARANTEE that if you will put in the time and effort to develop these fundamental skills, following the guidelines I give you in "The Art of Basketball," you will be able to compete effectively at a much higher level than you now do.
A player with solid fundamentals will always have a place on the court. For one thing, your game is multi-dimensional rather than one-dimensional. Whatever your team needs you to do to win, you can do it - whether its shooting, ball handling, rebounding, defense, moving without the ball. You play your role in response to the needs and capabilities of your teammates.
I call this book "The Art of Basketball" because I believe basketball IS an art. I love the game, because it requires intelligence and constant split-second decisions as well as athletic skill. If you treat the game with respect, and learn to play it as it should be played, you will enjoy the game even more, and youll be able to take pride in what youve done.
And as you get better, you will come to understand that there will always be areas in which you can improve!
Thank you for considering "The Art of Basketball." I think you will enjoy reading it and following its guidelines as much as I have enjoyed writing it.
