Shooting Line to Become a Straight Shooter

By Nathan Edick, Just Hoops

In order to become a great shooter, you must become a straight shooter first. From your shooting pocket you must move the basketball along your shooting line to eliminate any rounded or wasted movements. Your shooting line consists of:
1). Lead Foot
2). Lead Hip
3). Elbow
4). Shoulder
5). Wrist
A vertical/straight line must connect to all 5 parts of your shooting line. Capture your shooting line using video and/or pictures to see the path of the basketball from your pocket to your release point. Be precise. A lack of precision is dangerous when the margin for error is small.
