Dre All Day: The True Basketball Player…

Dre Baldwin | Basketball Training

When I first started playing basketball, I had no idea how to get better or even where to begin. All I knew was what I saw the older/better players doing in the pickup games at my local playground, and the stuff I couldn’t do when I (unsuccessfully) tried out for the local teams.

So I made one of the best decisions a clueless person can make in any field of life: I just got started, and figured things out along the way.

I Started My Own Basketball Training

16 years later from when I began playing basketball, I’m still figuring it out along the way. For every new thing I learn, I think about how it connects to any of the stuff I already knew (so many new ideas come from this!). I try new moves I see other players use. I see how certain training techniques might work for me (or not). If I see someone doing an exercise i in the gym that looks interesting or useful, I try it.

A lot of young players email me and comment my videos with a plethora of before-I-begin and what-if questions — questions that tell me they haven’t tried to actually do anything, except formulate questions. And I tell them all: if you’re waiting to have all the answers before you start, you never will.

The best thing you can do as a player is to play, or practice, on the court. Watching videos can be beneficial, and getting your questions answered is great. But nothing in the known universe — no amount of thinking, no books or blog posts, no tutorial-studying — trumps action. You have to go out and begin before you can become good. What you’ll find is that you suddenly don’t have so many questions — you learn as you go along, and wonder why you didn’t start sooner.

And as long as you keep going, maybe one day you’ll be the one answering the questions.

Article by Dre Baldwin

I am Dre Baldwin. Most people would say I’m a Basketball Guy — player, trainer, video-maker, writer. I’m an athlete, so naturally I play my sport and go to gyms a lot. Outside of that, I do a lot of reading; some writing; spend much time on the Internet; and some other stuff that you may or may not be aware of. I can play ball with any player in the World, on any stage. It had taken me a damned long time to get to where I can say that, and now I’m saying it. If you ever meet me and ask me, I’ll tell you the same.

Dre has written 5 awesome articles for us.
