Shootaround
In the National Basketball Association
National Basketball Association
(which is the American professional basketball league), SHOOTAROUND is an informal practice session. While the practice session must be attended by the players , it does not involve all the formal elements of a regular practice. Especially absent will be normally routine conditioning drills; probably absent also will be run-throughs of plays and extensive chalk-talks by the coaches . The practice may consist largely of players practicing their shooting in an unstructured manner, with five or six players shooting at one basket, rebounding others' shots and continuing this informal type of practice — hence the term "shootaround." NBA Hall-of-Famer Bill Sharman invented the morning shootaround as a way to burn off nervous energy on game days. He took the shootaround with him to his first coaching jobs in the ABL , ABA , and later, the NBA

Player (game)
A PLAYER of a game is a participant therein. The term 'player' is used with this same meaning both in game theory and in ordinary recreational games . Normally, there are at least two players in a game, but one-player games exist and are collectively known as solitary games (such as the Solitaire
Solitaire
card game and many video games ). "To become a player, one must voluntarily accept the rules and constraints of a game." PLAYERS IN COMPETITIONIn most games, one player (or team) is declared the winner, the player who performed the best. Some multiplayer games can have multiple winners, but in Western societies, one player (or team) is normally considered to be the "1st place", or best, among them, and tie-breaking structures are commonly used to ensure a singular "1st place". This is not true universally, however; for example, in Japan

Practice (learning Method)
PRACTICE is the act of rehearsing a behavior over and over, or engaging in an activity again and again, for the purpose of improving or mastering it, as in the phrase "practice makes perfect". Sports teams practice to prepare for actual games. Playing a musical instrument well takes a lot of practice. It is a method of learning and of acquiring experience. The word derives from the Greek "πρακτική" (praktike), feminine of "πρακτικός" (praktikos), "fit for or concerned with action, practical", and that from the verb "πράσσω" (prasso), "to achieve, bring about, effect, accomplish". In American English
American English
