 🏀You can shoot any way and the ball will go in eventually. Throw the ball behind your back a la @seemikedunn and it will go in some. But the key to being a great shooter is eliminating some variables. I'm not saying you have to do these things, or that all great shooters do them. I AM saying if you are struggling and want an idea on something to improve, check to see if you make this mistake.
.
✅ If you get your shooting hand on the bottom (middle) of the ball, and your non-shooting hand off the ball, the ball will go straight (assuming you aren't leaning or rotating with you body).
.
❌ If your shooting hand doesn't quite get to the bottom of the ball, it is going to either push the ball off line, or you are going to need to push the ball slightly with your non-shooting hand to get it back on line.
.
💡 Of course you can make some shots if you make the mistake, but if you can learn the top habit you can dramatically reduce the number of mistakes you make, therefore making more shots. So while there may be no wrong way to shoot, there are some ways that are more right than others.
.
🙄 Please keep the comments positive and appropriate for all ages. I'm offering free advice based on my years teaching shooting to some of the best players in the world. You don't have to listen. If you don't want the advice, just keep walking. Please don't spread unnecessary negativity.
