    Re: ADVICE FROM good shooters

    Definitely start off close in. Do about 100 shots from the top everyday, focusing on your new Jump Shot. Get the ball up and to your shooting pocket quickly while having your high release point. It's all about being comfortable and confident!

     

    This is just a matter of repetition and practicing it correctly. I actually have a video demo on how to correctly transition into this.


    Shoot me an email: dannym@innovativeathletes.com, I would love to work with you.

    I read in this basketball book that if you have words with your shoot motion it will help. Every time I shot I think legs, Through and yea. That way my legs are all most perfect and my follow through is held long enough and yea is the ball going in. It really works.

    Re: ADVICE FROM good shooters

    BEEF is the most popular way to describe how to shoot.

     

    B - Balance: legs bent, shoulders square - be in the "shot ready" position

    E - Eyes: Eyes on the rim

    E - Elbow: Elbow locked in tight

    F - Follow Through, extend on your release and hold your follow through up.

     

    Being a good shooter is all about efficiency, on the catch, straight line to your shooting pocket, don't dip your hands - this creates a quicker release.

     

    Does this help at all?

    shoot frum up close first then go back about a step and keep going bak until ur out of ur range and then just go bak 2 the beggining. how u should shoot is with 1 hand not 2. ur elbow doesnt have 2 be in its watev feels natural. and wat u need 2 no is BEEF and AAP Aim Arch and Power. ull eventually get better  and its taked patience 2

    i belive BEEF, is the best way to remember how to shoot well, im  not the best, but practice and repitition wont do any harm, only good, so shoot as often as you can and play pick up games to improve all skills.

    Re: ADVICE FROM good shooters

    Keep shooting three-pointers until you are tired if you want to be the best three-point shooter you can be. When you are shooting remember BEEF and iAthletes13 already mentioned above. Remember just to follow through. That is where most shooters mess there shot up on. Also, is your shooting technique good. You must use your knees in the shot to be consisten as well. Don't be afraid to use the glass!

    Re: ADVICE FROM good shooters

    Whenever I'm in a bad shooting slump, I examine my shot. Yeah, B.E.E.F really helps. What I do to add onto that is I look at the fundamentals for my foul shot. It makes a big difference whether or not your foot is perfectly in line with your elbow, which needs to be tucked in for aim. Getting good height in your jump shot always helps too. Just KEEP SHOOTING though, practice makes perfect.

    Re: ADVICE FROM good shooters

    My coach told me to pretend that there's a monster sitting on the rim and he has a lid covering the opening of the rim so he told me in order to make that basket your going to have to scratch the monsters head and shake his hand so I tried it and this season I was a 83% field goal shooter.

    Re: ADVICE FROM good shooters

    repetition is key, but remember to square your shoulders with the rim, flick your wrist, and line your feet up(or keep opposite foot an inch ahead, i heard both techniques work) release the ball at the top of your shot and make sure the release is right. practice shooting off the dribble, and the catch and shoot
