This is very true..a good strong jump on your jump shots can make hell of a difference.

Thanks guys, re-read everything and some really helpful stuff. My form seems a lot better, my mid-range shooting is pretty good now. I don't pull the ball up over my head anymore really, but I still have trouble past the 3-point line, but anywhere inside I'm doing pretty well.

Thanks for the tips, gonna work on some of this stuff (like pickups) to get a 3 going.

there is nothing wrong with having the bal by your head. the more you have the ball in a ready to shoot position, the quicker your release and shot is. You don't want to be pulling the ball down then comming up with it, it makes it a lot easier for the D to stip you.

im guessing you meant putting the ball over your head when your shooting, kinda making a slingshot type effect, you dont wanna do that either.

It might be a mental thing. Some people (including me) start shooting differently when they know they are behind the line. But when they play on a court where there are no lines, they shoot it great from downtown.

What? that didn't really make sense. I do have a lot of dribbling and ball handling videos though.
