Default Re: How did you learn to shoot a basketball efficiently?

Yes people with small hands can shoot a basketball. I have dwarf palms. NEVER seen someone with smaller palms then me whos same height or taller. Yet im one of the better shooters.

Practice shooting from nearer to the basketball and slowly go out when you develop your range. Square your body to the rim, Use power from the legs and convert it to a shooting motion (It has to be smooth not jerky if not youre doing it wrong). Flick your wrists to shoot the ball and visualise the ball going in.

Of course, very hard to put all into words and alot depends on feel and muscle memory. Good luck, just practice to you get the hang of it.
