The Shot

Three Keys To Becoming A Great Shooter

1. Separate the shot – load the ball into a release point – as time goes on this can happen in less than a second – for now it becomes “take your time”
2. Use legs and wrist to get ball to the basket – minimum of arm movement until the ball is released, then the arms can go in one simple motion toward the basket
3. SEE THE BALL GO IN – the player must visualize exactly how the ball is going to travel to the basket

Observation is the most important skill in basketball:
Separating the shot from all other activity.
Notice how the ball is held in a steady position relative to his body
– a relatively stable target aiming at a stable target – Count it!
