When it comes to shooting the basketball, learning the fundamentals is a must: Before you can nail a jump shot from behind the three-point line, you need to be able to make a two-foot shot while stationary. Skillful Shooting: Basketball Quick Tips begins by demonstrating proper foot placement for your shooting stance and proper hand placement for the shot. Viewers are then taken through the setup and shooting technique for increasingly difficult shots: free, midrange jump, long-range jump, and the bank shot.
Learning and practicing the fundamentals of good shooting technique are essential to becoming a great shooter. Skillful Shooting: Basketball Quick Tips helps build the skills needed to shoot the ball with confidence and accuracy.
