What Makes you a skillful basketball player???

It seems players have gotten away from the fundamentals of the game. If you score 81 points in a game, like Kobe, does that really make you great? And what about dunking, a dunk is still worth two points? And if you shoot too many threes you could cost your team a win. Don't you need to be good at other things besides scoring to be considered great? Jordan scored a lot of points, aside from that what else made him a great basketball player? And if you're great, don't you at least need to be able to shoot free throws? Shaquille Oneal i think is very overrated. He is just big so he runs over people and knocks them out of the way. What skill is that?

There are different things that make basketball players great. When you look at a player like Jordan, he was a great scorer and a great defender. He also made players around him better. With a player like Shaq, he gets a bad rep because of his free throws, but in reality there has never been a big man of his size that was so good with the ball. He is a great passer, he is very quick for his size(he has slowed down with age), he runs the court very well, and he has great hands. He is the most dominating player in the league right now. Most people that big can't walk and chew gum at the same time. Shaq is also very unselfish. If you ever listen to him speak, he always praises his teammates and coaches and not himself. Kobe Bryant on the other hand still has to learn how to become great. He needs to improve his defense and learn how to pass the ball a little better. You are right that scoring 81 points does not make you great, but he did do it against an NBA team

1. Natural Born Talent
2. Height
3. Experience(knowing what to do in pressure situations)
4. have players around you make you better

81 points in one game makes you great

Yes dunking is worth two points

Scoring is the easiest way to be considered great but Defence is still important.

Jordan won Championships plus he was MVP, on the all defensive team. Plus lead the dream team to a gold medel

You should know how to shot free throws.

power but that is not that important.


YOUR SHOOTING, YOUR REBOUND YOUR OFFENSE WHEN WILT CHAMBERLAIN SCORED 100 POINTS, AND WHEN HE HAD SCORED SIXTY OR SEVENTY POINTS, PEOPLE THOUGHT THAT HE WAS A GREAT BASKETBALL PLAYER. BUT NOW WHEN KOBE SCORED 63 POINTS IN 3 QUARTERS AGAINST THE DALLAS MAVERICKS, AND SCORED 81 AGAINST THE RAPTORS, PEOPLE STILL WANNA HATE MY BOY. I DON'T CARE WHAT NOBODY SAYS . KOBE BRYANT IS NOT AWESOME. HE DON'T NEED TO BE COMPARED TO MICHAEL JORDAN CUZ HE IS HIS OWN PLAYER, AND PLAYS HIS OWN GAME. DUNKING MAKES YOU AN EXCITING PLAYER. VINCE CARTER GOT THOSE SKILLS. DOMINATING ON THE BOARDS MAKES YOU A GOOD PLAYER LIKE KG. YAO, SHAQ, OKAFOR, AND SOME OF THE OTHER DOMINATING CENTERS AND FORWARDS IN THE GAME. GETTING ASSISTS MAKES YOU GOOD TOO. IT DEPENDS ON THE PERSPCTIVE AND OPINION OF THE INDIVIDUAL
ITS MY OPINION DON'T HATE
