One of the best ways to improve your scoring ability is to play 1-On-1 as much as possible. Seek out players that are better than you and keep playing them until you can beat them.
Michael Jordan used to play his older brother 1-on-1 who used to beat him all the time. Eventually, Michael Jordan improved his skills, and the odds turned in his favor. He starting beating his older brother all the time, and he just continued to improve his scoring ability from then on.
Humble yourself and ask for advice from players that are better than you. If you want to become a better scorer you need to talk to the local basketball player’s that you admire and ask them for tips and advice that will help you become a better player.
Master 3 Go-To-Moves
If you want to be a dominant scorer you need to have 3 deadly go-to-moves that you can unleash at any moment. You need to practice these moves thousands of times until they become Second nature.
Add variations and different speeds to your moves in order to make them more deadly and less predictable. It doesn’t matter how good you’re, if you use the same moves over and over, you will become predictable, and the defense will shut you down. You need to switch up your moves and keep your defenders guessing.
Develop Tight Ball Handling Ability
The better you can handle the ball, the easier it is to score. When you can handle the ball very well, you don’t have to think about what move to do and you don’t have to worry about the defense stealing the ball. This allows you to focus on other things such as what is the highest percentage way to get the basketball in the hoop.
Develop Your Stamina
It doesn’t matter how good you are, if you are tired, you won’t have a good performance on the basketball court. Get in good basketball condition and make sure you’re eating healthy and staying hydrated.
If you’ve ever logged big minutes in an organized basketball game, you know exactly what I’m talking about. When you’re tired you won’t want the ball, especially if the defense is tough.
