Okaay so i have a conflict, I'm a ball player..there's this fat dude he was kind of my friend everytime were teams (3 on 3) He always says dont shoot three's and things...And im a good shooter and Honestly not to brag..I'm the best one on the team! And like he put me down not playing varisty basketball..I didnt play cause i was grounded when tryouts happend...So tell me what should i do...Just play my game and be the scorer i am"( i also drive the ball and things) or what? I want to become a Nba player in life!
if you can make em... don't stop takin em. make sure they are good shots everytime within the flow of the offense, at first. then, if you make those and earn the respect, you can pull the jimmer and chuck em everytime you want.
Thanks bro..I work so hard on my game and people saying negative stuff is modivation! But thanks..it means alot.
Also, if your dream is to be an NBA player, make sure you have a back-up plan. It is extrememly difficult and rare to become one so don't put all of your eggs in one basket.
Do your thing and play your game. Who cares what others say, if your game is effective, don't change it. Improve your strong and weak points but keep your overall game the same if it works.
keep playing hard , do your best ad show that passion and fire that your the man on the team. If he puts you down you do the same and prove him wrong. Make criticism your motivation.
Today he really put me down, and i really doubted myself..I was mad..I started playing since i was 3 and how is someone just gonna say that. Thanks guys i really needed this. I will never stop. Because now i know there are people who do believe in me!
Dude, just do your thing, and keep shooting them jumpshots and threes. Since he's your friend, I assume you don't want to start somthing, but tell the guy to get off your balls and that your gonna shoot threes. And I don't mean to say this in a mean way, cause I know guys that are really cool to be around, but can be diicks while playing basketball, but if someone is insulting your basketball abilty, than maybe their not your friend. Then again, you probably know better than any of us, good luck, hope you play varsity next year.
Is this guy on varsity himself? Or is he just one of those guys who give people shit even though he isn't good himself?
I'm kind of guessing the latter, and if he's just a hater who doesn't accomplish anything himself, then who cares. Try to get on a different team from him and really take it to him. If he's fat and your a slasher, there is no way he can stay with you on defense. If he is on varsity, then it will be that much better when you beat him out next season.
Well, son, it's like I always say:
If the glove does not fit, you must acquit.
Meaning, Stay In School
Play your game kid! Keep shooting and don't change your style if it helps the team. Work on your weaknesses and eat, sleep, and think education and basketball. I spent my Sr. year on the bench getting DNPs and spot minutes behind guys that I knew I was better than and definitely had more talent than. I was nervous and forgot what confidence was when playing, but I worked too hard to have went out that way. It took me til my freshman year in college to learn that you have to have short memory and a strong mentality to be a factor on the court.
Yeah he is a shit talker, That all he does...He doesn't play varisty or any other sports...He airballs layups and stuff...everytime were on diffrent teams we always win even when i had a girl yesterday we beat them 16 to 5. I'm trying hard to be a better player and not care what he says.
Just play ball and stay confident. And everytime you hit a shot mean mug the hell out of him.
