From Dusen in Oshawa, Ontario:
I just LOVE, LOVE, LOOOOVE the game of basketball. My main question to you is that I would like to very, very much make it to the NBA. I do practice basketball almost everyday, except in the cold or rain, but I am not sure if I am good enough to go there, so can you please send me some tips on going to the NBA. It would mean very much to me!
P.S. My favourite player in the NBA is Allen Iverson because of all of his moves, crosses and especially his knowledge of the game.
Allen Iverson became very good by practicing and as I mentioned in the last Ask JT, by playing against better players. Sometimes if you can't find bigger or better players to play against you need to practice at game speed and visualize bigger players and defences reacting to your moves. Always take time to work on the fundamentals and practice at game speed. Good luck.
