Default Hook shot...

Is it only in my area, or is the hook shot not being used anymore.

It seems I am the only one that uses a hook shot, I've perfected it, and it's almost unstoppable. All it takes is practice and unless you're a lot shorter than anyone, it's unblockable.

By the way, I'm a 6'1 Point Guard.

Anyone else here notice that the hook shot is becoming extinct?

Anyone here use it frequently, and who here can sky hook? I'm trying to work on Sky Hook's but I need some tips.

its my go to move i use it alot ive come to the point where if im in the paint im not missing a hook unless its reallly good d on me. I can go hitting 10-15 straight (unguarded) from about freethrow range im 5'10 i hit that shot against kids 6'6 i won a sidekick 3 using the hook shot. Me and a friend (hes 6'4) pput up our sidekicks on a game of 1on1 game to 11 i won with a jumpshot but every other shot was a hook.

Im a 7'0 center and I use jump hook most of the time, while sky hook very rarely. Jump hook provides much better balance. For hook shots it's only important to practice them alot...

Nobody gives a **** how tall you are. It was cool the first time you mentioned it, but 500 of your 700 posts mention your 7ft tall.

I had it down pretty good for a month about 2 years ago, I had range to the ft line. I'm not as good at it anymore, but I use it whenever I am in the post. I'm 5'8"
