Default Hook shots!

Okay, i never get this but how do you guys get hooks so good. Like most of the time i make them but sometimes i completely miss the rim and it bounces off the back board or something. I don't suck at basketball i'm pretty good for my age but it bugs me that i can't hook!! haha if anyone could tell me and my banana how to hook we'd be happy! thanks!

I am working on my baby hook so I can take PG's into the post if they switch onto me.

do the "ray allen" drill that's what i call it

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IPuD8bGdts

he does it with jump shots but u can pretty much do that drill with any shot you're comfortable with. i do it with jump hooks and jumpers

basically, start at 0 and start shooting

each make is +1 point and each miss is -2 points. you win/lose when you get to either +10 or -10

i do this every day it really gets your confidence up, i find it helps when you talk yourself thru it but that's just me

I am working on my floaters ( Baby Hook Shoots) because this is a lethal weapon when i am going up againts the SF of the other team. I think Hook Shots are more effective if you have a longer wingspan, and this can intimidate your opponent because this is one of the best traditional move in basketball.

i've been having my son work on this lately, teaching him to use his body to gain position and to jump as high as he can for the hook shot. i haven't seen too many younger kids doing this so i really pushing it.
