You can become a better 3 point shooter just by watching this guy shoot!
You have to agree with me when I say this is crazy. Is this guy for real?
If you want to become a better 3 point shooter, here are some tips!
Tip #1 – Locate Your Target (the Rim) Earlier
Getting in the habit of locating your target (the rim) earlier will improve your shooting percentage. Why?
Locating the rim just a split second earlier gives your brain more time to subconsciously calculate distance and focus on your objective. Your eyes should be on the rim as early as possible. To make this little trick work, you need to develop this habit in practice, which carries over into games.
Tip #2 – Always Hold Your Follow Through
You’ve probably heard this a hundred times but there’s good reason for it. Holding your follow through solves a multitude of shooting problems. This simple movement helps you maintain good basketball shooting technique without even thinking about it.
Tip #3 – Finish with a Relaxed Wrist
A common mistake is for players to follow-through with a tense wrist. Your wrist should be as relaxed as possible. Your hand should finish on line and even bounce a little during the follow-through.
In reality, if you are not a good shooter, you will most likely never be a great shooter. If practice was all you needed to get better, how do you expect a 20 year old kid to shoot better than someone that played 20 years on the NBA? It happens all the time. People like Steph Curry have a natural gift for hand eye coordination, and also amazing talent in general. You probably don’t have the talent he has (not to be a dream killer, just honest), because if you did, you wouldn’t be reading this article trying to get better at shooting 🙂
This is just advice, do whatever the F you want to do!
