How to get decent at basketball?

I've played basketball many times in my life (at least 1000 times), but never on an organized team other than intramurals. I'm usually the worst player on the floor.
How do I get better? Meaning, how do I become a better pick-up player?
I'm looking for skill sets that are good for pick-up (I've always been told that shooting is the most important skill, but I think ball handling is important). I'm looking for personal drills to do that are fun and rewarding. I figure playing alot is important, but even when I play with friends, it's hard to build confidence. Doesn't help that I'm typically the shortest guy on the court (5'6").
