I Haven’t Played Basketball In A Long Time

I Haven’t Played Basketball In A Long Time is a blog that covers the struggles and successes of getting back into basketball after a long break.

Why I stopped playing basketball

I used to play basketball all the time when I was younger. I was pretty good, too. I loved the feeling of the ball bouncing off the hardwood and the satisfaction of sinking a shot. But I stopped playing for a number of reasons.

For one, I got busy with other things as I got older. School, work, and other extracurricular activities took up more and more of my time. And as I got busier, it became harder and harder to find time to play.

Another reason I stopped playing is that I started to develop other interests. I discovered new hobbies and activities that I enjoyed more than basketball. And as my interests changed, so did my priorities. Basketball just wasn’t a priority for me anymore.

Finally, my friends who used to play with me stopped playing as well. We all went our separate ways and pursued different interests. And without them, there was no one to play with.

These are the main reasons why I stopped playing basketball It was a combination of getting busy, developing new interests, and losing touch with old friends.

How I felt when I stopped playing

It’s been almost two years since I last played basketball. I was never very good, but I loved playing and being a part of a team. When I had to stop due to an injury, I thought I would miss it more than I actually do.

Now, don’t get me wrong – I still love the sport. Watching the NBA is one of my favorite pastimes. But there’s something about actually playing that I don’t miss as much as I thought I would.

Maybe it’s because playing always brought out the competitor in me, and not in a good way. I was always too hard on myself, always trying to be perfect. If I missed a shot, or made a bad pass, I would get so frustrated with myself. It was like I was never good enough.

Not playing has helped me to relax and enjoy the game more. Now, when I watch Lebron James miss a shot, or Russell Westbrook turn the ball over, I don’t get upset. Instead, I can appreciate their greatness even more because I know how difficult the game is.

So while I may never play basketball again, that’s OK. Because in some ways, not playing has made me appreciate the sport even more.

How I felt when I started playing again

I hadn’t played basketball in a while, so I was a little rusty when I started playing again. I felt out of breath and my muscles were sore, but it was a good feeling. I was happy to be playing again and getting back into shape.

What I’ve learned since I stopped playing

Since I stopped playing basketball I’ve learned a lot about myself and what I’m capable of. I’ve learned that I’m a lot tougher than I thought I was, and that I can handle adversity. I’ve also learned that basketball is a lot more mental than physical, and that the biggest obstacle to success is often yourself.

How my game has changed

It’s been a while since I’ve stepped onto a basketball court to play a game. I can remember the last time vividly. I was in college, and we re Playing against our biggest rivals. The whole game was intensely physical. Every time I went for the ball, I got fouled. Every time I tried to take a shot, someone knocked me down. By the end of the game, I was so battered and bruised that I could barely walk.

Now, it’s been years since that game, and my body has changed. I’m not as young or as strong as I used to be. My reflexes have slowed down and my stamina isn’t what it used to be. But even though my body has changed, basketball is still the same game.

The same principles apply: you still need to be quick on your feet, have good hand-eye coordination and know how to think two steps ahead of your opponents. Even though my body isn’t what it used to be, I’m still confident that I can compete with anyone on the court.

What I need to work on

I haven’t played basketball in a while and there are a few things I need to work on before I’ll be able to play at the level I want to. I need to work on my stamina, my shooting, and my ball-handling.

How I can get better

If you haven’t played basketball in a while, there are a few ways you can get better. First, find a place to play You can either go to a park or join a local Basketball League Second, start practicing your shooting. You can do this by shooting hoops in your driveway or going to the local gym. Finally, work on your dribbling and passing skills. You can do this by dribbling a ball around your house or playing horse with a friend.

What others have told me

According to my friends who are still playing, the game has changed a lot since I last played. The biggest difference seems to be in the style of play.

What I think about when I play

When I play Basketball I think about a lot of things. I think about the mechanics of my shot and how I can improve it. I think about the other players on the court and how I can best help my team win. And sometimes, I even think about things that have nothing to do with basketball at all.

It’s been a long time since I’ve played organized basketball, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still enjoy shooting around by myself from time to time. When I do, all of those same thoughts still go through my head. And even though basketball isn’t a huge part of my life anymore, it’s still something that brings me a lot of joy.
