Let's say that I wanna git gud at basketball quickly to impress the local chocolate hunnies.

Obviously on-court practice is best, but what can at I do at home or during bad weather to maximize footwork, agility and mad air? I assume cardio in general but specific exercises/diet/tips from experienced ballers would be appreciated.

I think hoping for a helpful bballer is a long shot. However you used the right board I think and I would hate to see you go home completely empty handed.

If there's nights you can't play but can make it to a gym I reckon High Intensity Interval training would probably be a good way to simulate bursts of action over a long period of time, with slower bits. Basketball games are relatively short but the average pro player runs 2.5 miles per game give or take. So of the 48 minutes they spend a lot of time not running. Explosive speed and quick recovery are probably better but over a period of time because it's still 48 minutes of game (in 4 sections) if you wanted to simulate a gane you could do HIIT for 12 minutes at a time 4 times. Obviously you should be practicing skills and agility and dedicating time to that, something you can't do if you run yourself ragged but if you're doing that once or twice a week on top of a game that'll improve your fitness. Maybe during your other workouts do one 12 minute stretch of HIIT at the end or something.

Diet is also just one of those things that's pretty general. The question there is do you want to gain or lose weight? Basketball players are not built but they have some physical power nonetheless. Generally eat well, a decent amount of protein, some fruit, lots of veg every day but the specifics depend on you. If you want to impress the ladies you'll want to be reasonably lean with some muscle definition anyway.

Good luck on getting more specific advice..

Does wearing weighted clothes help you jump higher or does that only work in anime?

That's a meme. Weighted clothing (wristbands, shoes etc) are used for training muscles, in specific controlled movements (like glute kick backs). If you run while weighted down it's dog shit on your joints.

Unfortunately it is getting way too hot here in the Deep South for a white boy to play bball outside :/
