Fundamental Skills and Athleticism

WIthout any scientific research to really back this up, I would wager two different points regarding fundamental skills and athleticism.

  1. Most people refer to fundamental skills as passing, dribbling and shooting and maybe screening and defense
  2. Most people refer to athleticism how high you can jump, how fast you can run or change direction.

What really makes a basketball player athletic?

The fundamental skills are rooted in the basics of athleticism, movement and competition.

True athleticism is the ability explode and stop, jump and land, and control the body while performing skills in game situations.
