Re: Height/Athleticism or Skill/Shooting?
As said, height and athleticism can't be taught (athleticism, well, to an extent can be trained, but is restrained due to genetic limitations), but at the same time, in a pool of players that are all equally athletic, skill and shooting is going to be the deciding factor. Athleticism can fade though. You can improve it, but after a certain period of time (i.e. aging), you're going to lose sizeable amounts of it, even with proper training. On the flipside, game skills can only get better if you do train them properly, so I'm going with that.
