Basketball Player Tips & Articles
Throughout this section, you will find plenty of basketball tips and articles that will help you become a GREAT player. Remember, "great" is not defined by how many points you score, but by how many games you help your team win.

Why do you think people love playing with Jason Kidd? Why do you think the Olympic Committee did everything they could to get him on the squad? It's because he can help a team WIN MORE GAMES without scoring a single point. I've watched games and thought, "Man, Kidd is tearing it up." I later find out he only scored 2 points.

Not all of us can be the scorers, but you can REBOUND, TAKE CARE OF THE BALL, DEFEND, HUSTLE, and MAKE THE EASY PASS.

Take that mentality to your team and I guarantee you get more playing time and your team wins more games!
