How to Shoot a Basketball With the Right Form.




Introduction: How to Shoot a Basketball With the Right Form.

                             Why does B.E.E.F have any relation on how to shoot a basketball. Many of you may say that it has nothing to do with it, but it shows your eyes/brain how to shoot a basketball with the right form. This is probably the most easy way to learn to shoot by just following these simple steps.

Supplies: Basketball, Basketball goal, and a pair of hands.

Step 1: (B)eef


                                              To have a good basketball shot you must have good balance. Before you do that though you must grab the ball, and face the basketball goal. Then have a slight bend in your knees This will give you a solid base. You don't want to be swaying while you shoot. To have even better balance you need to have your feet shoulder width apart. Make sure you are facing the basket or goal. This is important because it is very diffucult to shoot with almost no stability.

Step 2: B(E)ef


                E-stands for eyes you need to always have your eyes on the basket it is very hard to shoot without your eyes on the basket while you are shooting. It can sometimes be very tempting to look at the ball, but remember if you follow those rules you will have great shot form.

Step 3: Be(E)f


                           The next step to having a great shot is your elbow. You need to have your elbow dirrectly under the ball so you have great control over it. Your non-shooting hand should be on the side supporting it. Not shooting with it. You should be able to lower your hand without the ball falling off of it. If the ball was a clock your hand should be on 6' O Clock. This will give you alot of power to shoot the ball through the rim.

Step 4: Bee(F)

F-Follow Through

                                 This step is probably the most imortant of all the other ones the follow through. This is so important because the follow thru will get backspin on the ball which will help it go in. The follow through can also be the hardest to do though. After you have followed all the other steps, you need to push up with the ball and roll it off your finger tips towards the basket. The last thing to touch the ball should be your fingers. You need to picture like your hand i trying to grab a cookie, and the cookies are in the rim the hand must go over the rim. This will help you get arch and will help you be more accurate.

Step 5: Conclusion

                   Now you see how beef can affect the way you shoot the ball. These steps can be the difference if you make or miss your shot. These simple instructions are the best way to learn to shoot a basketball. Just remember Balance, eyes, elbow, and follow through. If you don't believe me then take a look at any NBA players shot i can almost promise you he follows beef.
