“An Overview: The Fourth of Three Things to Remember”

Posted by Steve Bzomowski on April 26, 2006

Trying to remember four things when there are only three enters the realm of “thinking too much”. Can you think too much on the basketball court? After all, you hear players say, “I’m thinking too much. I just gotta go out and play!” Which is, of course, just an excuse for playing poorly. If “just playing” means playing relaxed and playing confidently, then, yes, just play. But, not think? Of course you have to think and you have to think a lot and you have to think fast; THAT’S the fourth thing to remember: think! We want smart players and smart players think or, perhaps more accurately, they see and they react and decide accordingly. How do you know how to react? Understand the essence of the game (balance, spacing, movement) see it unfold it, then play it. Like everything else, it takes practice and the more you practice, the less you’ll have to remember.
