Six Skills All Stars Master

Jul 9, 2008
Have you ever noticed that some ballers seem to shine compared to other ballers? There are some special, dominate hoopers that just seem to separate themselves from the rest of the pack. Are You one of them? Do fans come to watch you play? Or do they come to see one of your teammates? I just received an email from one of my special ballers that bought by Go Basketball Pro System and he had a very basic question? Rali, what are the most essential skills All Star ballers master? And here is the answer.

Skill # 1:
All star ballers are different then most. Some are small, big, fast, slow, but when I say different, I mean they have mastered what the rest of the ballers have not. This is one of the most crucial steps you MUST take in order to dominate the court. Goal setting. I know it sounds basic, but believe me, its more effective then you think. Think about it for one second, how are you going to achieve something you do not have a goal for? When you set your goal, you have a reason for playing, a reason for practicing, a reason for being. You have to know exactly what you want to accomplish, no ifs, ands, or buts.

Skill # 2: Defining a niche!
This is by far the most over looked aspect in basketball. A niche is what you do best, it is the one thing that you do great, the thing that separates you form the baller next to you. The One thing you can provide the team, and what the coach can count on you for. Without a niche, you have no identity on the court. If you look at all the kings in the NBA, you will easily discover their niche.
Steve Nash- passing
Ben Wallace- Rebounding
Dwayne Wade- attacking the basket
Mike Miller- Shooting
Kobe - Scoring
And the list goes on. Find a Niche and spend as much time working and improving it as much as possible.

Skill # 3:
Staying as low as possible. Basketball is a sport that should always be played from low to high, not high to low. The lower you are, the faster, stronger, more balanced you will be. When you drive past someone on offense, you want to focus on getting your shoulder to where the defenders hips are. That is how low you should be on all you drives. There are certain things that separate the "wannabee ballers" form the All-Star studs that get all the fame and publicity. And make no mistake about it, theses are the keys to unlocking your true potential. Here are the other crucial 3 keys All-Star ballers master

Skill # 4: Practicing Less But accomplishing more!
Yes, All-Star ballers leverage their time effectively and get more accomplished in less amount of time. How do you do that? Easy! You incorporate basketball circuits into your workouts. Most unsuccessful ballers do the traditional work on 1 or 2 things each practice, like spending 45 minutes to a hour working on their jump shot. And then spending the last 15 minutes on defense or conditioning. It would be far more effective if you had a circuit of exercise ranging anywhere from 4 to 8 different exercises in each circuit. These exercise would be called stations and you would spend a certain amount of time at each station and then rotate to the next station. From what I have found, 30 seconds is plenty of time to spend at each station, and then you would allow your self 15 to 30 seconds of rest in between each station before moving on to the next station. Just pick your top 6 drills that you love to do and incorporate them into a circuit and watch as time fly's by and you get so much more done.

Skill # 5:
Mastering the art of marketing and exposure. There is nothing lucky about it. The reason why that baller is on T.V. and your not is because he knows how to market himself correctly to get as much exposure as he needs. Look, it's very simple:The best basketball player in the world is nothing unless people, and I mean the right people know of him. How many ballers do you think are out there that have the talent to play in the NBA, but are not there? I know of at least 50 of them. Learn how to market yourself to teams, coaches, schools and organizations as soon and as early as possible and watch how fast an avalanche of scholarships and contacts will fill your mailbox.

Skill # 6:
Doing what's Uncomfortable. Yep, That is right, doing the uncomfortable. All-Stars ballers have formed the habit of doing things they do not like to do. Let me explain. Everyone is natural inclination, including All-Stars, is to be lazy and only do things that are comfortable. Here is an example. I do not know about you, but when I played, I use to hate doing things that would improve my defense. Like defensive slides, holding my defensive stance and other drills that would make my legs feel like logs. But just because I did not want to do them does not mean I would not do it. I try to form the habit of doing all the things I did not want to do, but if I did, it would make me a better person, and a better baller. Everyday think of the one things that you do not want to do, but if you did, it would make your life better, on and off the court. Master these 6 skills and I guarantee you your competition will be sorry.
