There is 10 steps of becoming a good player.

Step 1:

The introduction of every sport should be stretching. Walk 400 meters, run 400 meters, then walk 400 meters. Do anything to get those muscles running. You don’t want to twist your ankle because of running too fast or stretch a leg muscle for sprinting.

Step 2:

the second steps is knowing the basics of the game. Such as; knowing when it is a foul, understanding when it is a double dribble, how to dribble, shoot, rebound, etc.

Step 3:

Train and challenge yourself. Dribble, shoot, rebound, etc. Be your own coach. Don’t be discouraged when you watch a good basketball player, what and learn from him/her.

Step 4:

Practice with other basketball players. Understanding the terms of basketball means. 

Step 5:

Learn on how to work as a team. Be a good team player. Pass more often, run for an open space to help that guy being surrounded by the opposite team, help block, help with rebounds, etc.

Step 6:

Adopt new tricks. Watch other players, watch more basketball games, search YouTube, look on Google, watch basketball on TV, ask a friend to show you a few nice tricks and moves.

Step 7:

Play basketball everyday or every other day. Play more often. Have a sense of dedication to the game and learn to be patient.

Step 8:

Play with others. As a player you should know what you would be competing against. Play with people that is older than you or the same age.

Step 9:

DRIBBLE! The only way to succeed in basketball is by dribbling. You could be the best shooter on earth, but without knowing how to dribble, it would be very hard to be a good player. And by learning to dribble, that doesn’t mean you should only know the basics, but you should advance in dribbling. Point guards and shooting guards like Kobe Bryant are great at shooting, but the only way he could even get his shots off is by maneuvering his opponent.

Step 10:

That’s how to be a good basketball play.
