without seeing your skill level i must say the easiest way to get better is to know WHY you make mistakes, not simply counting your mistakes. This is very demoralizing for a new player and could possibly contribute to your lack of self-confidence.
if you dont know why you make your mistakes, then become a student of the game, start to dissect players' games, tendencies etc in the NBA. By doing so, when you get out on the court, youll be able to pick up on opposing players' tendencies a lot more.
post a vid and im sure youll get a number of detailed responses.
