Technique 1: When shooting a basketball, you have to make sure one of your hand is under the ball and the other hand guides a ball (the guiding hand). That is the basics, but I want you to get close to the rim and get the basketball and shoot with one hand.

This is what I mean, get the ball and put your hands (shooting hand) under the ball with your elbow in with your knees bend. The picture shown above illustrates what I am saying if you didn’t get it exactly.

Technique 2 and 3: Make sure when you shoot, you use the tip of your fingers and spread your fingers to shoot and give it a nice flick of the wrist.

Technique 4: Of course, bend your knees, it is vital to the process of shooting. Your knees give the whole shooting process flow, and shooting is all about proper flow. So, your knees give your shot power to get to the rim to make the shot. When you finish shooting, hold the pose of flicking your wrist after you shoot for following through your shot.

The goal is to get used to holding the ball properly and shooting with your finger tip, while your fingers are spread apart with your elbows in and bending your knees for a better release off your fingers to get a high percentage of making a NOTHING BUT NET SHOT.

Make sure when you’re shooting, you shoot with the tip of your fingers (reminding you). Keep practicing shooting with the one hand till you get the hang of those techniques properly.

Once you get those 4 techniques down, you got past the hard part. If you can shoot with one hand following those detailed techniques, then you graduated. Your jumper has elevated. Now, once you start shooting with your guide hand  the hand that guides the ball when you shoot with the shooting hand, you will have a smooth release and you will make more shots. The more you shoot with the tip of your fingers (fingers spread and elbows in) and knees bend, you should be swooping those nets. Nothing but net. Follow those techniques and see what happens. I am telling you, your jumper will be SPLASHING THE NET. Keep practicing and STICK with it.
