    Great tips for doing lay-ups!

    Can I add a couple, just for fun? Always jump off the foot opposite your ball hand, and drive the same-side knee upward as the ball hand when you jump. (So, with a right hand shot--the right knee drives up in the jump, and vice-versa for the left side.)

    And generally speaking, lay-ups on the right of hoop should be right handed, and left hand side shots should be left handed.
