Today I worked on left handed layups, step backs, 3's, and free throws. I went 7for10 on free throws, hit three of my first 3, 3's. Improved in every category. I practiced for 2 hours today. And everyone who wants to get better needs to practice at least 2 hours a day. And do it 6-7 days a week. You can't expect to be great in one day. It takes work. And that's what I plan to do every day.
When I was a kid, I went back and forth between sports. If it was baseball season, I wanted to play baseball forever. If it was football season, I wanted to play in the NFL. And so on. But I live in Illinois where it's snowy in basketball season, and well, if there's no time for me to play when the season's done, then I thought well it can't be basketball. But just past year, 2010, I decided right when the season started that I loved it so much and I wouldn't give it up. And sure enough, about a year later, I still love it. My goal is to make the pros. That's why I named this blog Pro Basketball instead of NBA, because make it in Europe or the CBA is just as great an accomplishment as making any other league would be. Now don't get me wrong, the NBA would be one of my biggest accomplishment, but making a D1 school in College would be the greatest. That's my dream, to make the Pros. I will now give daily updates and what I'm doing to get better.- 23AirJordan
I know basically everyone who loves basketball has the dream of playing in the NBA. I do too. Just the idea of getting paid millions of dollars seems too good to be true. But what most people don't realize is the hard work you have to put into it. Peope who are absolutely sure that's what they want to do. And after they are sure of that they will either go outside and practice everyday, or sit inside dreaming of what life will be like if they make it. But the kind that sits inside doesn't know how much farther away they are getting as they do nothing. And later in life they will realize that you can't sit around waiting for something amazing to happen. And those who do get to the professional level will be satisfied with the work they have put in when they were younger. That is what this blog is geared toward. Doing what it takes to play pro basketball.
