One of the most important ways to your basketball talent is to know how the brain functions. Improvement can be more rapid and transformational with an intentional plan. Be smart and take time to understand how you can build your talent faster and wiser.

When You First Learn A Skill

When you first learn a skill, your brain is extremely active in regions which trigger motor movement and there is a great deal of energy and effort taking place. When you have reached a level of skill mastery whether it is with dribbling, shooting or other basketball motor mechanics, the brain has become very quiet in areas that were previously very involved. The brain is actually doing less which allows you to access other regions of the brain such as problem solving, pattern recognition and other more complex and advanced skills.
