Default Re: How can i take my game to the next level?

If I repeat something that was already said I apologize, I haven't read completly through this yet. One thing that sticks out to me is rebounding the ball. It doesn't matter what size you are you can still be a great rebounder. Get position and hold that position, even if you don't get the ball atleast your man doesn't get it and believe me coaches notice that. Also watch J Kidd play, he gets so many triple doubles because of rebounds.

The other thing to keep in mind is to limit your trash talking. As a player and as a coach I could not stand trash talking. If I played against or still play against someone who is trying to get in my head it does nothing more than make me play harder. It gives me that strength to reach deep down inside and play harder. Don't get me wrong, it does get into some people's heads and takes them out of the game, but a quiet guy crossing over someone or blowing past them will take them out of a game faster than any talking will.
