5 Things You Can Learn from Pre Season Basketball

1. Be a Listener

Whether the coach is talking about team rules, a basketball drill, or a game-winning play your team will run later in the season, you need to pay attention, to show your coach you are fully engaged in what's going on. It will also help you become a better basketball player.

2. Be a Communicator

When you're on the court in practice or a game, it's extremely important to communicate with your teammates. The best basketball teams at any level know this. Communication of relevant information keeps everyone on the same page, prevents mishaps and discourages your opponents.

3. Put in Extra Work

If you come to practice and put in the same amount of work as everyone else on your team, how can you expect to distinguish yourself? It's not enough to show up on time for practice and leave immediately when it's over. If you look at the best players in the world (Kobe, KD, LeBron, et al.), you will see they are also the hardest-working.

4. Make Time for Recovery

Depending upon your level of play, the season can be long and physically draining. It's important for you to learn how to take care of your body and spend the time you need for recovery, whether it's stretching, foam rolling, ice baths, etc. This will keep your performance fresh and prevent injury.

5. Learn Off the Court

A lot of improvement happens off the court. You need to spend time meeting with your coaches to learn what they want from you, to better understand the offense/defense, and to develop your overall basketball knowledge.
