I believe in basketball.
It’s a great sport to play and get your energy out. There are so many aspect of the game that take, so much time to learn and understand. Basketball keeps you in great shape and you have to use many muscles, if you want to play it well.
From shooting and dribbling, to having the timing and athleticism to leap into the air and grab a rebound. Another thing that is a huge part of basketball and where they will place you because of this, it’s your size and how you are able to move with your size. Most think that if you are bigger then you should play what they call the “post” position, but a lot of guys today are proving that just because you’re big, doesn’t mean you’re a down low player and can’t do all the things a guard can do.
This newer style for today is called “European styled basketball.” European basketball and American basketball are so different in some many ways, but all the ways still work and can be used to play and beat your opponent.
To me European styled basketball, is way more technical and the moves a smoother and look a lot cooler than some other styles. European styled also has a lot of foot work involved to play the game and is hard and takes time to learn. To me, European styled basketball also involves less dribbling then most other types, in that you may on take a couple dribbles from the top of the key to get to the cup and lay a bucket in; also you may come around a screen and get the ball and not dribble at all and just spot- up shoot. In my eyes, the European, style of basketball doesn’t really have a center, or down low player. All the players on the team are able to make difficult shots, whether they are extremely tall or normal sized and can all dribble fairly well.
American styled basketball is more athletic and raw and untrained. It’s the type of basketball that is your own style and you play what fits you and what makes you comfort and able to get wins, but putting the ball in the basket. No two styles are the same, because the different players all use different ones in different situations and to get out of them.
