TIP! Successful free throws require you to be mentally and physically strong. Making the right physical motions is easier than having the right mind set.

Basketball is popular all over the world. From playing at the park to watching the best in the sport play for a championship, Basketball is a sport that reaches a lot of people. Anyone who plays basketball wants to improve their game. The following article has excellent tips that will show you how to better your basketball playing skills.

TIP! Watching the pros play is a great way to see how great basketball players use their skills in the game. Go to actual games or watch on TV.

Practice shooting free throws. These shots look easy on television, but are actually hard when you are doing the shooting. Practice frequently using these techniques. Put your weaker hand in front of the ball and center your stronger hand over the air valve in the basketball. Visualize the ball sailing into the hoop. Next, take your shot seeing the ball move in the trajectory you envisaged for it.

TIP! Practice catching passes as often as you can. While you are practicing, you should be sure to drill yourself on catching errant throws, as well as catching those perfect passes.

When dribbling the basketball you should keep your head up. Lack of practice will manifest itself in looking down towards the ball when dribbling. One of the best ways to improve your dribbling is to bring your ball along anytime you need to walk somewhere. Whenever you are walking and it is appropriate, dribble there. If you have to watch the ball, you will be unable to see whatever is going on at court level.

TIP! Practice using different types of defenses. A lot of the game is sure to be played in the zone, but your opponent could change to man-to-man coverage.

Shake things up rather than focusing solely on a zone defense. Your opponent may change their game up to keep you on your toes. You may lose control of the game if you aren’t prepared.

TIP! What do your teammates admire about your skills? Find out what they perceive as your best skill. It could be your speed, or it could be your back-up abilities.

Clearly, there are quite a few ways to help yourself play a better game. Some skills can be learned by repetition. It’s important to practice to become the best you can be at basketball. Whether it is practice with your team, playing a pickup game with friends or even just playing with younger players for fun, it all adds up to better skills and sharing the love of basketball.
