    The fact that if you play for/against a younger, less skilled team, the ref doesnt pick up everything.

    Skill Development which is the result of lack of good, genuine teaching. Too many players go through their careers with out being taught the proper fundamentals, technique and knowledge of the game.


    iHoops is a good start to reverse the problem and start teaching valuable things, but you still need a global coaching workforce dedicated to youth skill development.


    What do you think?

    I think that some of the biggest issues are the refs and fundamentals. To tell you the truth i never really thought about, and i don't think that there is much to think about except horrible refs and bad fundamentals. More so the bad fundamentals. If you don't know how to play the game correctly, you shouldn't play on a team until you know how to play correctly. You should go to camps, clinics, and training sessions that provide excellent coaches who can teach you how the play the game THE RIGHT WAY. On the other hand, most refs these days aren't that good. I think something has to be done about that to, but i agree with iAthletes that fundamentals and playing the game the right way is the bigger or biggest issue.
