“See the Front Rim”
Posted by Steve Bzomowski on February 1, 2007
When shooting, focus, really concentrate your vision, on the front of the rim. Don’t just look generally at the area of the hoop. See the front of the rim and imagine shooting the ball over the rim. Remember, the target is actually air, that slice of air that occupies the area of the circle encompassed by the round rim. To get to the target, you have to shoot “up” and have the ball come down through. When releasing, follow through intentionally with your shooting hand, wrist snapping at the basket. Given good balance with your feet, the ball will go where your hand sends it, so be aware of what your hand does on the release.
