Default Moving with the ball tips and decisin making

Hello =]

I can go left or right but my question is during games how do you know which way to go? Does your movement depend on the individual defender or the whole opposition's defense?

Also when you do your move, do you think about it beforehand or does it just come naturally?

Any tips will be appreciated, I have the basic fundamentals at the moment but just struggling on decision bit of my game. Sometimes, I dont know when is the best time to pass, shoot or drive.

Just like anything life it depends. Depends how close the defender is to you on a fast break. Depends on your coordination and what side you finish better. Depends on your confidence to do the actual move in a game. Usually i have a planned move in my head, but i don't always use it because something may not go as planned. Honestly my best advice is just be aware and focused and have a variety of moves to counter any defense an any situation

Personally it sounds like your thinking to much. When I'm playing, I try to get in the zone, and when your in that zone you'll find you just react, do things normally and quickly. Your react to the defence.
One game I played recently I was in this zone. I brought the ball up, I had no moves/thoughts in my head, my mind was clear, I just reacted. Both the defending guards closed in for a double team so I automatically turned with my back to the basketas I did this I noticed one drop back
And the other was slight to my back side, so I drove out of this position between them both, the centre closed in next and I saw our big man behind him so I wrapped my pass around the opposing centre and got our big man a clear shot.
This all happened and not once did I think. Decision making comes with game experience, an you work on your skills to back you up so you know when the time comes you'll be ready to perform.

Best piece of advice is always take open space in front of you. Where you go from there you need to learn through experience.

Gotta make mistakes to get good.

just a follow up, lately I have been hesitating, read and reacting to what the defender is giving me (kinda like what steve nash is doing). It has been pretty good and given me good looks in the basket and allows me to make better decisions in terms of passing. Before, I guess I felt like I had to give up the ball easily and seems like im in a rush (losing confidence).
