How to further develop my game? 

Post#1 » by DCRYsing89 » Fri Feb 23, 2018 9:19 am

I have only been playing for about a year.
My midrange is around a 40-50% normally,
My 3 stands at 20-30%, (I only attemp 1 a game for this reason, genrally they are genrally off the catch, or off a screen)
I have most of the layup packages (Jelly, Euro, Floater etc.), and i can finish with or through contact genrally quite easily, i do lack a left handed layup though.
My ball handling is very defensive, I focus mainly on protecting the ball. But if the opponent reaches i do have nice behind the back and quick crossovers that can be effective, but i still get many turnovers standing at 6'3 with a slow dribble.
My passing is incossistent, i can be read quite easily leading to turnovers, but I do have a wide variety of passes i can do (spin, one hand, two hand, behind the back etc.) And i do have solid court vision so when i make passes they can genrally lead to assists.
On the P&R i am decent, my passing, shooting and driving is all at a decent level, as the Pick i also am solid though weak.
On defense i cover passing lanes decently and with a 6'7 wingspan my length i manage to pick passes alot, i also do not commit reach in fouls.
I also am a decent on ball defender, wether against larger or smaller players i can hold my own decently (specialise in perimeter)
I take charges happily, i get fouled sometimes for blockeping players from behind, but normally i am a decent rim protector for my height.
Physically at 6'3 with a 6'7 wingspan and a 24inch vertical i can get reasonably high (cant dunk yet though), i am agile and decent stamina.
My averages this season is (per game)
6.5 points
8.5 rebounds
4 assists
3 steals
1 block
1 foul
1 turnover
35%FG
12.5% 3pt
55%FT

What is my next step to improve my game?
How can i get out of a shooting slump?
How can i fulfil a bigger role in the team?
Also what role and position should i play? (My team switches me around from a giannis esc role to a dwight Howard or a Roberson one and then sometimes even makes me play a DeRozan/Reddick role of spoting up on midrange)
After your first, you change, you mature, you dont just jump into things.

After getting dunked on for the first time, life becomes complex.

As an experienced HS coach I'd suggest focusing on ballhandling and offensive footwork.

By footwork do you mean post, triple threat, offball ect.?
Do you have any NBA or Euro players i can study to help that aspect of my game?
Thanks for the reply
