The History of Basketball
What are the requirements?
- Height - You don't necessarily have to be tall to be in basketball or to be a good player but it is in advantage to be tall. when your tall you have better of an advantage to block shots, to jump higher and even when you shot.
- Endurance - In order to become a successful basketball player, you need to have excellent endurance.Basketball is a sport that at times can resemble a track meet in its near non-stop sprinting. In basketball you have to be running, jumping or have to have physical contact and other required body motions which means that you have to be in good shape to be able to last in a game.
- Athleticism and Agility - being able to have both of these can help you a lot in basketball when you have to go for rebound, or when blocking shots and even when shooting. It also helps you to be agile; basketball requires the ability to change direction frequently and suddenly.
- Strength and Toughness - If you don't have the strength and toughness to keep your opponent from overpowering you on both offense and defense, you might struggle to succeed. Mental toughness is important as well, you have to have the ability to be confidence even after missing several shots.
