    Drill drill drill until you can be the best shoter in the HS... but from there you've got a major height disadvantage to deal with. The only shot I think you'd have to make a HS team is if
    1. You were the fastest guy on the team with the best moves and ball handling skill, and
    2. If your legs were powerful enough to give you some jump.

    Good luck, Ted!

    Wall dribbling will make your fingers stronger to palm and handle the ball better and you should practice some crossover, spin move, behind the back, and all that good stuff

    For speed Sprints , Jogging, and Jump roping

    Do jumping jacks so you can get higher because I'm 4'11' and there is a 6 foot hoop and I can touch the rim but I can't dunk and do some shooting
