Default Re: Getting Game Back Up To Par & Regaining Confidence/Swagger

I spent the past two weeks resting a stretched arch in my foot. As a result, tonight was the first time I've played ball in 15 days and just to reiterate what you mentioned, it sucks to play after not playing that long. Even with the warmups I mentioned, there's still a certain feel that can only be regained through playing a lot again. I hate being out of game shape because it sucks so bad getting into shape. First, the ball felt huge in my hands, like I was dribbling a slippery balloon. Also, it was hard to coordinate some of my moves alongside my wind. Sometimes, there's only so much one can do to remain game ready without playing games.
