Five Basketball Myths about the Jump Shot
by Brian McCormick, CSCS, M.S.S.
Shooting gets more complicated every year; not the actual shooting, but the over-analysis and information saturating the marketplace. Through working with dozens of players and listening to the instruction they have received, I have compiled my five biggest myths in shooting a basketball.
These are five quick myths that undermine athletes shooting. Instead, start in a balanced position and explode with the lower body, shooting early in the jump; also, center the index finger on the ball and shoot all the way through the ball, keeping fingers relaxed and open throughout the shot. These simple changes will increase a player’s accuracy.
