Just gotta hit a ton of balls against a boat load of different good players. No short cuts, no fast track.
How much time you put in affects how good you get how quick.
And a sports competitive background helps tons.
Agree with this. That's why I was forcing my imaginary player in post to practice 10 hours per week to get in the practice time.
Although, I do think it would take less time to become a defensive counter punching 4.5, (especially for fast people) than an attacking all court player.
