Default So I Just Picked Up Bsaketball For The First Time Two Years...

And I have completely lost my game

This happened to me before and I couldn't buy a shot when we were just shooting around but once the game started I suddenly got my stroke and handles back and didn't miss a shot

Wish I was like that. If I take a day off it seems to take me a week to get back to wear I was. I guess I never really had a "game" though. Just a recreational player.

Well I'm more of a recreational player as well. Never played on a team or in a league or anything serious. Just pickup games. But I mean I couldn't shoot, lost my handles, everything lol.

I made 1 shot when we were shooting around and the shootaround lasted for like 20 minutes at least

But once the game started I only missed 1 shot. Ironically it was my signature shot, a turnaround jumper on the left block

I notice most casual players warm up shooting three balls and long range jumpers.

Start closer to the basket and progressively move out.

It's odd to me how you guys are some of the most active posters on these forums and can't play ball/don't play ball regularly?

That's what it boils down to. Just practice everyday there's always something to be worked on. I wish I would've played more when I was younger. I had great talent I just needed to work on fundamentals and I could've played on a team. I just never tried out. I'm sure I could've made it though.

Last time I played organize basketball was almost 1 month ago. I am no longer nervous while playing with people that I barely know.
