but yall dont understand the coach for our team last tryouts cutted all the short players and if i can at least touch backboard that will make my game much better i m quick as hell and i good good handles which are getting better i pratice shooting all day long i shot about 250-300 shots a day that is my goal right now "MAKE THAT TEAM" and i will do whatever it takes

Default Re: increasing vertical

the game has a little to do with height, but look at boykins. He plays with people 2 feet taller than him and yet he is able to survive because he works on other things than the impossible. Having hops will help, but perfecting your fundamentals helps a hell of a lot more. Hops is VERY overrated. its about speed man and brains. You gotta be smart. Steve Nash has no hops, but he can sure as hella play because he is smart and can think fast and well.
