Default Re: Anyone get bored shooting around alone?

Practicing alone and putting in the time is how you get better. All of the all time greats spent countless hours in the gym alone, just working on their game. Without it, they would not be great. I used to have little skills when I was in my teens, just relying on athleticism. Now that I'm 38 and having worked on my game for 20+ years, my skills have never been better and it continues to improve. The goal is to always try to get better and master as much of the game as possible. Playing basketball is one of the pure joys of my life and I love working on my game alone. I like getting into that zone where it's just me and the game and nothing else. That's when I feel a oneness with the game. Sort of like a Zen experience.
