How To Play Basketball

Just a quick post re how to play basketball. I’ve been running a basketball blog for quite a while now I think I may know a thing or two about it.

So here’s the image I will use to make my point.


Basically it has all the details you need to know. Here’s a closer look:


And if that’s not enough for you, here’s the video:

Got it? Good. So let’s recap the lessons learned from those images and that video:

  1. If someone is about to try and score over you, do everything you can and try to stop him.
  2. It doesn’t matter if you’re smaller. You are a basketball player. True players of the game defend with every last drop of blood in their body. If you have the chance to block it – heck even to just change a guy’s shot, do it.
  3. It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks you look stupid doing it. If you’re the type of person who has to wonder how something looks before doing the right thing, then you’re a stupid person. There’s no two ways about it.
  4. And finally anyone who thinks a dunk of the year is one where a Center dunks over a PG then he just flat out does not know basketball. I know basketball. That’s not the dunk of the year.

Lesson over. Go out and play.
