Hi, this is Sean Hobson and what we’re talking
about right now is the proper mechanics behind making a great shooter. Now, we can talk about
having a good base. We’ve talked about picking up the goal with your eyes. Now, its the important
part which is actually making the shot. So, first of all, we always want to catch the
ball and we want to get locked in the shooting form. We want to have our feet shoulder width
apart, good base. Now, we have our hands perfectly ready. Now is ready in time to make the shot.
Now, there are a lot of ways that you can make the shot. We want to talk about the proper
way. There’s kind of a difference that you have to find out. There is a common point
that you need to practice over and over again. And what I mean by that is some people shoot
the ball way out in front of them. That’s not where you want to go because what happens
with that is a) the ball is going to have too much velocity and you’re going to have
a flat shot. Its going to have a hard time getting up over the rim. Its going to hit
the front of the rim. So you don’t want to come out of your shot and shoot it straight
out in front of you. You also don’t want to shoot the ball straight up top because what’s
going to happen there is you’re going to shoot the ball up high but its not going to have
very much distance. So you want to find a happy medium. And that release is going to
be about right here. All you’re going to do is you’re going to take your hand from your
shoulder and just bring it straight out and that’s about the proper angle to making a
shot. So not too high, not too far out, but about right in the middle of making the shot
and Hunter’s going to demonstrate what that looks like. Good. You see his hand wasn’t
straight up, it wasn’t straight out, its about 45 degree angle and that’s the proper shooting
style that we want you guys to use.

  4. Dude, seriously, if you're gonna show us how to shoot, then make him actually shoot, and no, 2 feet away from the net is not shooting, that's more like a layup. If you're gonna show us how to shoot then go from the freethrow line or something

  9. If you wanna go a bit farther and shoot threes, I suggest you dip the ball lower and stand on your toes.
