Any team needs to become a dominant force… to become the kind of team that can get a win on any given day, against any other team…
Obvious, right? You need your players to be able to put the ball in the hoop. Consistently, in a variety of situations, and under any kind of pressure. Jumpers, layups, free throws, threes, dunks, whatever. They just need to be able to fill it up.
Also obvious. You need to stop the other team from scoring. Sure, you’re not going to shut them down every time, but if you make every shot they take as tough as possible, you’ll lower the chances of them winning the game by a bunch.
If your team outruns and out jumps the other team, you’ve got a big advantage, but physicality goes beyond
