Introduction

Are you someone waiting to enter the world of basketball? Well let me give you a few ideas to consider before making a decision. For those of you who think you know game hear me out on some nice tactics to elevate your game while ruining your opponent's expertise. There are always a few basic necessities to being successful at whatever you do: strategy, technique, talent, concentration and a little bit of luck helps as well. This also applies to what you bring to the court and can be broken up into three main elements: offensive, defensive and mental tactics. There are many other elements of the game, which are out of your control such as size of you or your opponent. Offensive, defensive and mental tactics will always work to your benefit and help you stay competitive especially when you are the underdog. ...read more.

Respect the time and use it to get a good shot. By using the trash talking method and slow and steady shot method you heavily increase your chances of staying competitive. The game can sometimes cheat you out of win cause of a little luck, but it can also save you. I lost a few games cause of it, but you can't leaves games to chance and have to take control with the fundamentals of offence, defense, and the mental elements. Just remember every time you step onto the court bring it all floor and don't leave anything behind.
