How to Become a Better Shooter | Basketball

A: Alright, Swoop, this is your favorite part
of the game. Swoop: Ah, shootin’ the ball, right? A: Yeah. How to get bucket! Swoop: Right, you know bro, you know what,
I have a different couple ways to shoot the ball, man. A: Uh-huh. Swoop: My first way, of course, is the granny
shot here, that’s the best way to become a good shooter. Or you have the two-hand, one-foot fling. I’m all for… A: Real good (?) move right there. Swoop: You like that one right there? I’m workin’ on my moves (?) about practice,
man. A: But listen, we’re gonna show people the
proper way how to shoot the ball. Swoop: That’s not the right way. A: That’s not the right way. Swoop: The two-foot fling is not gonna do
it. A: No. Swoop: No, OK. A: You see your leg right there? Swoop: Oh, but I was, yeah, that’s how you
gotta balance. A: Alright, you look like you’re a dancer. Swoop: Oh, that’s dancin’ stuff, man. A: Yeah, you look like a ballerina. Swoop: You think so? A: So we’re gonna let DP the correct way to
shoot the basketball with good form… Swoop: OK. A: …good balance… Swoop: Alright. A: …and good follow through. Beef! Swoop: Beef! Both: Balance, eyes, elbow, follow through. A: There you go. Swoop: I do that, see? A: Now, we’re over here with the expert, DP. He’s gonna show us the basic fundamentals
on how to become a better shooter. First you wanna get the ball, you wanna get
good hand placement. You wanna form a ‘T’ with your hands right
here, with your two thumbs and this is your guide hand, and this is your shooting hand. So, you wanna have your hands here. You got good leg placement. Good knee bend right here. His right foot is slightly in front of his
left for balance. Swoop: OK. A: Eyes should be on the front of the rim,
get that ball right over the front of the rim. Keep your elbow in, your right elbow here,
in this case, ’cause he’s right-handed. And you want to get good follow through on
the shot. So he’s gonna show us a couple repetitions
on great technique. Repetition and muscle memory. Here we go. There’s DP. Follow through. Bam. Follow through every time. Swoop: Not bad, not bad. A: There you go. There he is. Notice the follow through, notice the balance. Every time. Shot’s the same every time. And then he just gets shots up there. Every shot, you want it to look the same. You want every shot to look the same. Follow through. Good muscle memory. Follow through. Good muscle memory. Move it back. Swoop: Oh, move back a little bit. A: When he moves back the shot still looks
the same. It’s a natural flow, natural shot. Every one goes in when you use the proper
technique. Little toilet bowl action. Face. There you go. Nice. Follow through, all net. Swoop: All net. A: This is an expert, Swoop! Swoop: This expert! A: This is an expert! Swoop: Yeah, but what you say… A: [SS] Swoop: …this is not gonna work for me. A: No, that’s not gonna be what we’re looking
for. Swoop: That’s not gonna work. But I’m working on it. A: No, no, no, that’s not what we’re looking
for. We’re looking for an expert to show us, and
then… Swoop: There it is, OK. A: Alright, there you go. Swoop: OK, let’s get that thing going, alright! A: Look at him [SS] go. Swoop: Oh, alright, OK. A: Look at him go, look at him go there, Swoop,
see that? Swoop: There it is, there it is. A: It’s all in the pass, too, Swoop. A good pass makes a good shot. Swoop: So shooting is all about preparation… A: Yes. Swoop: …good form… A: Yes. Swoop: …balance, muscle memory… A: Yeah. Swoop: …repetition. A: That’s a lot of things to remember. Swoop: Wow, that’s a lot. A: But guess what? If you focus on your shooting technique first… Swoop: Right. A: …then you’ll be able to become a better
shooter once you do it over and over again. Just to go over some of the key points. You want to have great balance, eyes on the
front of the rim, keep your elbow in, and have a nice follow through on the shot. Bam!

  1. Check out Men's Blue and Yellow Curry 2.5 Under Armour basketball shoes size 11

  2. you don't square up, you have to angle your feet when shooting because its more natural like throwing a baseball

  3. I'd like to see a smoother transition from bringing the ball up to forehead level to the beginning of the upward movement of the shot (from up there)… I mean no hitches… Also, releasing sooner instead of waiting at the top (eliminating all upward momentum like he often does is bad).
    On a set shot the timing is quicker and dude ain't got the right timing.

  4. I've seen many videos on how to improve my game but none really just click to me tbh… there is this program called scoring academy and I like how the program is organize. Hopefully I can improve my skills by the end of this year with it… if anyone is interested, here is a link to the program:

  5. Already know that basketball player jump shot broke can't even make a swish on a close shot (not trying to be mean, maybe better dan me)

  6. What position should I play?
    Great defense
    Good shooting could be better
    Decent handles
    Goldy vertical
    Next vince carter on dunking
    IQ of CP3


  8. This video really takes to the next level and can help anyone become a pro. I personally got started two moths ago with practice shooting by the scoring academy this is very impressive if you want you can check it out ,okay if you interested but that s only my opinion
