What to work on for mens league game?
 
Im joining a men's league of mostly corporate/banking dudes, so I think the competition will be pretty soft.

Heres my bio:

Im 24 and 6'0 in shoes with the same wingspan. I have a good vert and can get my whole hand over the rim. My game resembles a homeless man's Westbrook. Im an acceptable 3pt shooter, good mid-range pullup off the bounce when defenders sag too much, but only a decent finisher since I usually drive in too fast and wild but without WB's length/airbourne agility to finish well. Passing is good when I'm not tunnel visioning to the rim. I probably turn it over too much. Man defense is excellent when focused.

What would be the best skills to work on (short-term) to dominate my league? League starts in about 2 weeks and goes for 10.

FTs?
Drawing fouls?
Endurance?
Dribbling?
Doing layups without getting stripped?

Your stamina

stamina is key, as are fundamentals. if you box out, youre going to blow the mind of your opposition and your team will love you. smart ball handling is a must - dont pick up your dribble in these leagues (or any, for that matter). and solidify a good off ball game/movement and youll do just fine

Develop a floater. It adds a totally different dimension to your attacking game when you have that in between option and can just flip it up over paint defenders from 3-12 ft when that layup isn't there.

Power Layup.

^ Power layup is the hop into 2 leg take off right?

Yeah, floaters are pretty awesome and everyone is always so "oh woww" when I do one. I shoot pretty well on them too.

Yes, it's very unstoppable in transition, and fast break.

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Lebron23 again.

Ive been working on my hop step, its pretty ****ing deadly for a lot of the times when a regular one leg layup is too weak in the paint. Hopping into a two leg jump feels like a much stronger move. I can put more force into big men and bump them back.
