    To improve in 2 months is a very good goal.  If you can string together 4 years by 2 months at a time then you have a chance to be very good.  You are tall for your age so considering how long your arms and legs are along with a number of other things you should have a few more inches to grow.  Your strength and size will come so dont worry about that.  Skinny or Lean guys have proven to be effective in basketball in many ways and you can find a role that fits you best in relation to what your good at.


    What to do?  You need a ball in your hands every day for the next 2 months, dribbling and playing as much as you can to improve your skills and game IQ. You need to get in the gym or in your driveway and do ball handling drills 3 times a day, shoot 3 times a day, and work on your speed and quickness at least once a day.  how much you shoot and how much you work on your handles is up to you and the hours you have available to do so.  We have a new shooting aid that will help you with your shooting development if your truly a dedicated player.  It takes HARD WORK to be good at basketball and you seem to have a God given gift of size so I suggest you continue your search for answers, develop and expand your game as much as you can and you will have a shot at greatness.  Your young so time is on your side, its up to you what your going to do with it.. Keep working hard!!!  JT
