    I think it has a lot to do with game knowledge which is an area I feel I lack and is very very possible to obtain. Put a top player on a machine and a mediocre player on a machine for 1 minute each with the outlane and the center drain blocked so neither can lose the ball and I guarantee the top player kills the mediocre player because they know WHAT to shoot to get the most points.
