I play the plus one, minus two game. For every basket you make, you get a point, and for every basket you miss, you lose two.

This is what I do too, along with practicing FT's.

I'll just do different drills.

My bad dude I was supposed to film the drills today to show you, but I forgot the camera... have to get it some other time man.

Shooting drills off the dribble these days mainly.
  • Start in the mid-circle and then alternately go left or right till the 3-point line free throw line extended. Then make a cross-over. Hard dribble to the elbow and pull-up.
  • Start at mid-court as if you're bringing up the ball, make a cross-over as if to beat a defender who is pressuring you out front. Then take 1-2 hard dribbles and pull up at about the free-throw line.
  • Start at the 3 at free throw line extended and practice curling off screens. Throw the ball to about the elbow and pretend to curl up, catch the ball, turn and face and shoot.
  • 3 Points shooting, both off the dribble and from my triple-threat.

Also just regular elbow shooting and free-throw shooting. Trying to make my release faster and more consistent, jump higher when shooting and be more versatile with my jumpshot.

And off course I use about 5 minutes to practice my H.O.R.S.E. shots.

I try to make myself do drills whenever possible. Sometimes it just doesn't work out though and I end up firing random half-hearted jumpers.

I start things off with 10 minutes of random warm-up ballhandling drills then I do a lot of self-pass, run off imaginary curl, square and fire drills. Also, I work on moves out of triple threat and subsequent slashes to the basket. I change things up a lot. My only steady habit is that whatever I'm doing, I like to plan it and make a goal before hand as a means of pushing myself.

Frequently, with a full court at my disposal, I play a game where I shoot a jumper from anywhere on the court and if I drill it, I stick around and take another shot. However, on any misses, I board them and pretend I snagged a defensive board and head downcourt in an imaginary fast break ending in a strong move to the bucket or pull up jump shot. I then rinse and repeat.

court time by myself in strictly me time. the best is when I go my court and am the only one, just thinking and putting the ball through the rim.

1) 5 rounds jogging + full body stretching
2) Form shooting from 5 feet from the basket at right, left, and in front
3) Free Throws
4) Jumpshots from anywhere

I should probably include a few ball-handling plus rebounding drills here. Damn, I've been saying that for too damn long.

I did this at the park today. **** the double rims... I would make 2 or 3 in a row but shots that would normally fall on a regular rim just rimmed out.
I normally just shoot jumpers all day.
