Hey everyone. Ok, so I'm a 5'9" center and I'm almost 14 years old. I've been practicing purely on my shooting for at least a month now, and no I don't take shot out of my range (Behind free throw), my farthest shots are free-throws, but most of them are close to the basket. And so I was wondering about how many shots does it take from ONE certain spot to be able to make 9/10 shots from that exact spot? 300, 400, 500? Right now I'm a 60% shooter close to the basket (8 ft+) and an 70% free throw shooter... Any help is welcome! Thanks!
There isn't really an exact number because it depends on how many you can make out of 100, 50, etc. It also depends on your previous chance of making a shot. It's important to keep track of how many you shoot and how many you make. And keep practicing. A lot. I've been playing basketball for three seasons and have a 85 percent chance of making a shot inside the three line. Good luck. I hope this helps, my coach answered this question for me last season, so I have somewhat of a answer.
What I do is take multiple shots from everywhere on the court. I've been playing Bball for three seasons now and my goal is to make our school's seventh grade team next year. I just keep shooting everywhere on the court and it helps me get better and faster. Also you should try to work on your catch and shoot. What I do is fling the ball to myself and catch it and shoot it as fast as I can and it helps improve my catch and shoot. Hope this can help you.
"I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."-Michael Jordan
Ok, thx! I was thinking the same thing myself... But why are you supposed to record how many shots you make and miss? To see if you get better or not, isn't it kind of a waste of time?
ya, its important to record your shots
