Basketball Spotlight Believes The Game Of Basketball Has Change

149From Basketball Spotlight their thoughts

I realized that the game of basketball has changed a little bit since I first started playing. It seems like in order to get noticed by scouts and coaches, you have to get buckets. The game revolves around buckets.

You can’t just be a good defender and good teammate any longer. Don’t get me wrong, those things are very good but in order to really get noticed, you MUST get buckets. Personally, my game really elevated when I started trying to put the ball in the hoop. I just added that attack to the other things that I already did. I was talking to my coach about this topic. All of the great players that you see in the NCAA and NBA can score the ball at will.

That’s what people like and want to see. Nobody makes a highlight reel of a nice kid playing good defense or showing good effort. The people that can score and put the ball in the rim get the recognition over those who can’t. So, for all of the people that are reading this, if you want to do big things as far as basketball goes, then start working on ways to score the ball.

You will see a huge jump in the exposure that you get. Still be a good teammate, and most importantly, BE COACHABLE. If you are a good person, good things will come to you. Karma exists. It’s as simple as that.
