Shoot the damn ball!
I love to shoot basketball for recreation. Yea, your boy can hoop a little ( just a little). I honestly don't care who I play with, or what type of team I'm on (within reason). I just like to play. It's pretty good cardio and there are always some good laughs. As competitive as I am, I don't even care about losing "pick up ball."
If there is one thing about "pick up ball" that cooks my grits, it's playing with someone who constantly hesitates shooting the ball! Shoot it! SOOOOO WHATTT if you miss it! If it's a good shot, TAKE IT! If you're open, TAKE IT! I'm never mad at a someone taking a GOOD shot. "Air ball" it! who cares? Just take the shot!
and he's back..
What do they do though? They sit there wallowing in their indecision and wait for the defender to come and block, steal, and/or defend their shot. Make a decision and go for it! You're going to make some shots, and you're going to miss some shots. That's the summary of every basketball player's career.
We've all seen this before. If not on the court, in life. People have a chance, and wallow in their indecision. The "I'm not sure" mentality makes me want to stomp on baby chickens!!! Grow some damn balls and make a decision! Ever heard the expression "Crap or get off of the pot?"
Fact is, some want to make it, and some don't. Figure out which side you're on and move forward. If you do want to make it, GO FOR IT! Whatever it is, go for it! Do it with all your might! A half assed try leads to a whole ass failure.
Let's get to work..
