Random basketball thoughts, part 1

Don’t try and rebound your own shot. The chance of you actually rebounding it isn’t worth the psychic price of assuming it’s going to miss. This doesn’t apply to close shots, where there’s less fine motor skill involvement, and far more chance of you successfully following it. But when you get out beyond 17-feet or so, all that should matter is that you have the utmost confidence in your shooting ability. Load it up, let it go, visualise it going in and you trotting back on defence. Be genuinely surprised if it misses. But if your thoughts immediately go to wondering where it might rebound to, you’re not a confident shooter.
