say that it's good to spin the ball backwards when shooting so it goes in easier

it all takes practice, all you other readers i started off with the ball alnding on the floor about 3ft away from my shoot point too, but i have stuck at it, and now i can hit from about 2ft outside the 3pt arc. just keep trying.
