Just Hoop has to be the mantra of all inspiring basketball players out there. There must be a present mindset of no excuses and getting better. Excuses are easy to make but that’s to be left for the weak-minded. An aura of positivity, improvement, and determination must be encompassed.
There are always opportunities to get better. At the end of the day, it’s just you and the basketball. It’s easy to get caught up in all of the present technology. You see everyone online with a trainer running them through intricate drills with innovative equipment and that’s all cool and dandy. But still, at the end of the day, it’s just you and the basketball. If you don’t have the exposure and availability to those luxuries then that’s okay. That’s no excuse. Just Hoop!
Go to your local gym and work on your game. If you don’t have access to the gym, then go to the park and hoop! If the weather is bad, then stay in the house and work on your ball-handling. If you roommates or neighbors become annoyed with the noise then work on your form shooting and run through some ‘Maravich’ drills working on your touch with the ball.
If that’s not enough then pull out your computer, go to YouTube and watch some film. Look up players and drills that you want to learn. The internet is endless access to anything you want. If your internet is down, then do some pushups and sit-ups to work on your strength.
We can keep going on and on but the point of this to prove that there are no excuses to be had. You can always work on your game no matter what. If getting better is what you desire then Just Hoop!
