Basketball Science

Understanding how things happen in a basketball game, from a physics point of view, is not necessary for a good player. A basketball player knows instinctively what to do in any given situation. Through thousands of hours of practice and game play, his brain has the correct sequence of muscle movements 'hard-wired' into it, much like you or I can walk without thinking about where to move the legs, and by how much. This is called 'kinesthetic memory'. A good pro basketball player has these game play reflexes because he began learning the moves as a child, when the brain is most receptive to imprinting a reflexive behaviour. It can be argued that such imprinting, through constant practice, must begin in childhood if the athlete is to become a star pro player.
