Gaining Mastery

Like with anything in life, practice makes perfect. I was never particularly good at basketball; all I could do well was run fast. With the ball in my hand, I might as well be handling a flaming porcupine. 
After our games, I would just run along the baseline back and forth, most of the time just getting my own rebounds off missed shots. Eventually I developed a pretty good mid range jumper.
