    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.

    i know how to shoot b-ball, so it makes sense to me. but, if anyone reads this and they are actually trying to learn how to shoot, it won't work. poor instructable.
