B-U-B = Ball You Basket - you should always be closer to the the basket than the ball!

1829 - ration of diameter of rim (18) to diameter of ball (9).

Click, Click, Click - move the ball without holding it. You have to know before you get the ball what you are going to do with it. Goal is ten clicks a game.

When attacking in open court go right at the defender, then break. Don't make an angle early. Keep them guessing and off balance.

Get in his "bubble"
