Falling backwards while shooting 3's.
 
Does anyone else do this? I do it every time.

I makes it look that much more impressive, especially if it goes in. :lol

Am I the only one who rushes to the paint to try to get the rebound after shooting? Even NBA players just stand still like a statue after shooting three.

I do the same thing too all the time, but I do it because my jump shot sucks though and I don't trust it.

Anyone shoot running 3's off the break? Basically jump right before you hit the line off 1 foot and glide in the air for a floater? If you miss you are right there for the putback. Make sure you got 10 steps on the defender though. Works great off the steal when they just give up. No loss in momentum and a chance for 3 points instead of 2.

Smart players never give up on a play, because they know that in pickup basketball some players miss easy shots on a fast break.

why do you risk a guaranteed 2 for a maybe 3 when a bounce after a miss might go not where you expect?

yeah, more often then not I fade when shooting. But Im learning to quit it.

You have to put a good touch on the shot and if you do you are in good position for the rebound. I'm just wondering if this could ever be perfected to not clank it off the rim such that there's no chance for the rebound.

I really doubt anyone could perfect it. Its impossible if you ask me. Good luck tho

The only problem with this is 3's are often long rebounds. This is why I really don't like 3's in pickup games. I play with a lot of guys that think it's the only shot they can take and they fire away on or off.

I just stand there like a boss waiting for it to go in lol

I never fade or fall backwards on 3s. I usually only go up with a 3 if my balance feels pretty good. The only time I really ever fall back is if I'm shooting a turnaround or something from the post.

Re: Falling backwards while shooting 3's.
 
i like leaning forward more than leaning back... probably cuz i dont have the upper body strength to get it there falling away without completely distorting my form. but especially coming off a curl, anywhere between 15-20 feet, turning to the left, i love transitioning that curl right into shooting form and leaning in.... ray allen does it a lot


side note: its amazing how much "follow your shot" was drilled into my head and i still dont to it anywhere near 100% of the time. its gotta be some sort of ego/confidence thing psychologically, its sorta part and parcel of following your shot that you assume its not going in, whereas holding your form or slowly backing up means you know its going in. i dunno how you'd find out whether one mentality or the other actually effects any given shot... probaqbly not, and its no reason not to follow your shot. just an explanation lol

Jump forward, lean shoulders back. It relieves tension and gets more arc on your shot.

Half court set? Sure. On full court you're missing on defense if your team fails to get the (long) rebound.
