Default Does my shooting form have to be perfect

My thumbs form a T(or inverse V cuz my right hand thumb is rather low) except of a V. Can I still maintain a shooting percentage as high as anybody else?

And also should I aim for the bootom of the net with my eyes or the middle of the rim.

yes. not everyones form needs to be perfect. plenty of accurate shooters have unorthodox forms. as long as you can make the shot without getting blocked, it's fine. changing it will take too long and require too much work that could be used doing something else. for me, I changed my shot because the release point was too low so I couldn't get it off in time.

i was always told 2 inches over the rim.

biggest thing on having a good shot is consistency.

It doesn't have to be perfect. It should be comfortable, but functional. You can't just toss it up there or something with your elbows flailing out and stuff.

Ryan Appleby told me to aim for the "net holder" on the rim that is right in front of u....

aim small miss small is what he always says.....

There is no such thing as a perfect form. Just do what feels comfortable.
