For today’s installment, I thought I would share a way to add some pressure and competition to your shooting practice this summer.
Have you ever imagined that you are playing for your favorite NBA or college basketball team? When I was younger I would go out on a low rim and dunk all day with my tongue out pretending I was Michael Jordan. The following drill is about playing a game against your favorite (or least favorite player).
Beat the Pro:
These are the rules of the game. Every time you take and make a shot, you get +1 point. Whenever you take and miss a shot, you imaginary opponent gets +1 point. Whoever gets a lead of +5 first wins!
You can try from different spots and different distances in order to challenge yourself. You can also change the scoring rules to where you get +1 point if your shot is a swish, no points if you make the shot but it touches the rim, and +1 for your imaginary opponent when you miss.
