Day 3

Posted by 23AirJordan Jul 27, 2011

Today was hot. And when I say hot I mean HOT!!!! It cooled off as they day went on though. Practiced less today. For around an hour. When will this heat wave end. Illinois summers are never this hot. Worked on my fadeaway jump shot today. That's mostly what I did. Had an off day from 3 today. Only made a couple today in about 20 attempts. We went to play tennis this morning and I played basketball at the court next door. Then I went to play tennis afterwards. All in all a good day. From now on I will start posting a drill on each post I put up. Keep following-23AirJordan

Day 2: part 2

Posted by 23AirJordan Jul 26, 2011

Well I just finished the rest of my basketball day. Here is an overview of my day. I started off my morning with a toaster struedel for breakfast. Than did my work out(which consists of 200 curls, chest presses, sit ups, etc.) Worked on basically every part of my game and got better at my threes. I keep on getting stronger from the outside so it keeps on getting easier to shoot them. Since I'm only 5"2, shooting and ball handling are the key parts of my game. And if I want to make the pros, then I have to keep on doing this everyday. And what I was doing was jump roping for 10 minutes each day, but then I just stopped and never got back and I'm gonna start again tonight. Spread the word-23AirJordan

Day 2(well sort of)

Posted by 23AirJordan Jul 26, 2011

Today I plan on seeing a movie so my training will be in the morning. Today I plan on doing exactly what I did yesterday plus work on reverse lay ups. I used to be great at them and that was my scoring threat but just too long without practice didn't help. And the thing is, if you want to get better at something, you have to make time to get better. Just like I'm doing. To do that, you have to develop a good work ethic. And that's what I have. Instead, I've got friends that just sit around saying they'll make the pros in whatever sport they want. I mean, all they do is sit around and play X-Box and watch Family Guy all day. And I just mutter to myself, good luck with that. So it takes work. And most people don't realize that. Tell your friends-23AirJordan
