It took almost 15 years but I finally developed a go to move. From the top of the 3 pt line, I dribble, pull up at the FT Line, and it's $$$ most of the time. I'm better going to the right but working on the left. EUREEKA!
I wasn't sure how it would play out in an actual game but I tried it out yesterday and this morning, it's pretty consistent. By no means I am a legend, but I like to think I can quietly give you 2-4 baskets in a game. At least to the point when someone says yo can someone pick up lil man.
I feel you. My patented move is the jab step, jab step, quick pull and fire. Cats always give me plenty of space, and all I need is six inches. The funniest thing is when someone new is on me, and one of his teammates yells "Yo he can shoot." By then, they're usually taking the ball out of the net:)
The one part of my game that's deteriorated with time, is my handles. They are horrrrrrrible. I used to have decent handles, but now they are straight garbage.
My handles started deteriorating 4 years ago when I played in the rec league. I was pretty embarrassed especially considering the level of competition. Now my speed is starting to go which is why I had to develop that move. I can't just blow by people anymore, lol
I can still get to the basket, but it takes so much out of me that I don't do it much anymore. I'm very much Jordan circa '96-'98...without the talent of course:) The one thing that has really picked up is my passing. My interior passing skills are nasty. I'm trying to develop my post game now. I got a nice fadeaway, but I'm trying to get a baby hook. That ish is HARD to master:)
