Default Re: Has my jump shot form improved, and any critiques on my new form or dribbling?

So watch that vid and compare your form to his.

Also maybe shot some really slow set shots so you work through the motions. If you video that, it's easier to see where you go wrong as it were.

I noticed that I shot the ball over my head like larry bird, which meant I never got blocked, my fadeaway was unstoppable, but I had no range, I tried and tried but could never get a three pointer, it was always short.

So after remodelling after steve nash, I changed the release to just in front, but the key in consistency was getting into the position called the shot pocket...I tuck my shooting arm close to my side and try and keep that motion the same every time I'm about to let a shot go...

I picked up that one from Blackjack. 3:15 onwards....

Great job on changing your shot mechanics though...and it looks like it's paying off......

One thing though, i can't pin point it but something isn't quite right with your shot...when u miss is it mostly front rim?

Great question. When I miss it is actually because I shot it of to the side, but I think that is due to me just being inconsistent with my new form and trying to get used to it. Do you have any other ideas on why?
