Re: Playing while high
For me, it's definitely an improvement in my offense. I still can't run for shit and in fact, I'd argue that my stamina is a tad bit worse when I'm high.
But I make shots I never would have made prior. I have a bad habit of following the ball with my eyes when I shoot. You're supposed to lock your eyes onto the rim when you shoot and keep them there. Just like in golf you're not supposed to look up at the ball when you hit it. It throws you off just enough.
When I'm high, every shot I take, my eyes lock on the rim. I never follow the ball. Even the shots I miss are more like in and out whereas before I was missing by a freakin mile.
