Why do we have to make things difficult? Isn’t it plain to see that applying fundamentals is the only way to go? On one side, you see a bunch of cocky dribblers attempt to crossover their opponents to death every trip down the floor yet couldn’t buy a basket most of the time because the ball sticks to a single player for most of the shot clock.
On the other, you see a focused group rotating the ball fluidly, setting screens, picks, rolls, finding the easiest opportunity to score, a layup, a dunk, or an open jumper.
Seriously, basketball is an easy sport to win if players stick to fundamentals instead of all those ball-hogging, grandstanding nonsense that a lot of us enjoy doing and glorifying.
And please, practice those long-range shooting. Please! Don’t forget the objective here — putting the ball in the hoop. You don’t get extra points for being fancy.
