Has it ever crossed your mind that one day you will be attending a basketball course taught by the legendary Stephen Curry himself? Neither have I. Thanks to MasterClass teaming up with Stephen Curry, we are now blessed with a 3 hour and 41 minutes online course with our favorite NBA superstar. Surely, it is quite a short basketball course but what more could one ask for. We’ve got to be grateful. I attended his basketball course with my friends and we were very inspired by it. One highlight of the basketball course is that Steven talked about some tips for developing our practice routine. And I decide to share a few with you.
First, he talked about practicing various dribbling combinations to polish techniques. Second, he stressed the importance of developing endurance. Practice makes perfect but long practice sessions can spoil the fun and wear you out fast. You thus have to work on your endurance so that you can enjoy playing while being diligent about it. Third, it is essential to build a strong foundation. Before moving on to more challenging drills and learning fancy skills, you have to nail the basics first. That way, you can slowly work your way up and be proud of the progress made. Fourth, don’t forget to simulate passes even when you’re practicing alone. He mentioned a trick – throw the basketball with a little backspin and magically it will come back to you. Finally, towards the end of the short basketball course, he reminded us everyone is different and the only thing that matters is finding ourselves the routine that makes us feel confident. If you still haven’t watched his short basketball course, what are you waiting for?
