映画のタイトルである『Natural』は、どのような意味なのでしょうか。主役のロイ・ハブスがすばらしいボールコントロールを披露する姿を見て、彼のエージェントが興奮しながら“he is a natural”、と褒め称えるシーンがあります。

And so that he has not had to train as hard, because he has those skills already or he has skills naturally.

And therefore some people would wish have that.
For example, a short basket player has not been given advantages, has somebody who is tall, who is naturally tall is in the advantage.

And there are so many parts of body that are the same.
Not natural, he is not gifted. He is not gifted. He has to work harder to succeed.

Tiger Woods is a natural driver hitter.
He is very good with a driver
