Christian J.:
My arc is straight but not far enough to hit the rim..it airballs
ELITE DRAGON:
Coach if i have a low arcing and its working should i keep it that way
Ethan Baillie:
My previous arc average was about 5%, after tweeting my shot with this video, I get around 39% of my shots.. that’s just two hours worth of this workout too
Flashy Gamer:
This video really helped me I barely miss now thanks a lot 😁😁
Ga Wa:
You said a thousand words and failed to clearly state what angle an optimum shooting arc actually is.
M.Kavya shree:
Wouldnt that jump and turning be a violation
Ron Christian Costaños:
Lemme try this and i hope it works
Shamboozler:
Has this really worked for anyone
Steve Watkins:
Considering only the math, no player will ever have a problem with putting too much arc on his shot. A shot that drops into the basket with a 52 degree entry angle (the center of the ball enters the hoop at a 52 degree angle measured upwards from the horizontal) will have almost the same margin for error as a shot that drops in at say a 45 degree angle. A higher arc exposes a bigger target to the ball, which provides more room for error. However, a higher arc also requires the ball to travel a greater distance in the air. The shot has less room for error when it must travel a greater distance. So there is a tradeoff between target size and distance travelled. When you minimize target size divided by distance travelled, you see the odds improve (mathematically speaking) if you shoot high, but not very much, and if you shoot higher than about a 52 degree entry angle, your odds start to decline.

In general, a higher arc is needed when you play on a hoop with very stiff rims. If you ever played on a hoop with double rims, you know that if the ball just barely ticks the rim it is likely to bounce out. A higher arc increase the chances that the ball will drop in swish, since the optimal entry angle for swishing the shot is about 55 degrees rather than 52 degrees. The 52 degree angle is optimal for making the shot which allows for the ball to barely tick the front rim or rebound downwards off the back rim.

Also, it is often best to use the backboard , when playing with very stiff rims because friction between the ball and the board reduces the speed of the shot (softens it) so that it is less likely to hit the rim so hard if it is a little off.

When you play on a court with very soft rims, you can get away with a lower arc. Although it is less likely to go in swish, it is also less likely to bounce as far away if it is slightly off target. Playing on soft rims may be good for your ego but you will quickly get frustrated when you play at the park on double rims until you learn you have to use the board more often and shoot higher.

The problem with shooting with very high arc is it is just a matter of practicality for a tired ballplayer. It takes more energy to shoot high, and energy is often in short supply in a fiercely fought game. That said, you can still get a high arc if you use good technique.

People say that shooting is all in the legs. It may seem that way, but it in fact your shooting arm provides most of the ball speed generated in your shot - not your legs. To understand that, consider how high the ball would go if you didn't use your arm when you shoot, then consider how high your shot will go if you don't use your legs. If you don't use your arm, the ball will not go higher than your own body at the top of your jump. But if you keep your legs stiff and just stroke the ball with your arm and wrist, you can send the ball much higher than that! So how can that be if your legs do practically all the work?

Most shooting gurus will tell you that shooting is all in your legs because that is where your biggest muscles are. Sorry, that's not how it works. Yes your legs are stronger than your shooting arm but consider the mass that your legs must force upward when you jump. The mass of your entire body! Your arm only has to overcome the resistance of your arm and the ball, which is much, much less.

Shooting gurus who say that the legs do practically all the work take the shooting stroke for granted. Players generally shoot with a consistent stroke so there is not a lot of variability in the ball speed your arm and wrist generates. You extend your arm and snap your wrist and the speed generated from that depends on the strength and quickness of your shooting arm and how long your arms and fingers are.

But when you use your legs in combination, the ball speed greatly increases depending on the time you release the ball, which is greatly variable. Sometimes you will shoot just as your feet leave the floor and sometimes you will shoot at the top of your jump. If you are very strong and athletic, you may even be able to hang in the air in close and shoot on the way down, which I have seen Michael Jordan do on highlight films.

If you do the math, you will see that releasing the ball just very slightly before the top of the jump ( a small fraction of a second) greatly influences the height and distance the ball travels - because that speed COMBINES (multiplies) with the speed generated from your stroke. The two speeds don't just add together, they MULTIPLY. That's why it appears as though your legs do most of the work.

Many old school shooting gurus insist that you should release the ball at the top of the jump and insist that is what NBA players do. That is not exactly true, although it may be very close. That's what it may feel like and that's what it may look like, but in fact if you release the ball just a tiny fraction of a second before the top of the jump, you cannot detect any difference when you look at a player's shot in slow motion replay. But that tiny fraction of a second makes a big difference regarding how high and far the ball travels, due to this multiplying affect. In reality, your upper body and lower body are both essential and must work together to get a good arc.

The legs are essential for greatly increasing the arc and the distance the ball travels while still shooting with a smooth stroke. Good technique is all about getting your body into position to shoot as early as possible before you reach the top of your jump. You don't even have to jump that high. You just have to shoot EFFICIENTLY to have good range.

To shoot efficiently, DON'T SLOUCH your shoulders over before you jump, don't slouch your shoulders over at the set point (which is when you start your stroke), and don't slouch your shoulders over as you shoot. Go up strong and stay strong and still - hold that strong posture in the air from start to finish.

If you slouch your shoulder over in your stance, it will take you longer to raise up out of that stance. Valuable upward momentum you impart to the ball that comes from your legs - that helps the ball go higher and farther - rapidly dissipates during that time. You are likely to shoot a line drive. Just bend SLIGHTLY at the waist before you jump. It is difficult to not bend at the waist at all when you bend your knees but keep your shooting shoulder up as high as you can.

Secondly, jump with the intention of getting your shooting shoulder back at the set point and MAINTAIN THAT POSITION until the ball leaves your fingertips. Feel that slight arch in your lower back before you shoot. If you rush, you will shoot before you have established that strong posture and your shot will be erratic - probably an ugly brick. Watch any great shooter and pay close attention to their posture in the air. All great shooters will have their shoulders back and an arch in their lower back and they hold that position throughout the shot.

If you are slouched over as you shoot, your shooting arm cannot apply as much force directed upward. To understand that, consider the bench press versus the military press. everyone can lift more when they bench. The reason is that you can apply more force when you extend your arm further outward from your chest, rather than upward.

When your shoulders are back and your lower back is arched slightly, you are in position to extend your arm more outward from your chest to achieve a high release point so you can naturally apply more force in your stroke. Get into that position ON EVERY SHOT. And if you shoot while you are still rising in the air, you will shoot with a high arc because the path of the ball depends on the momentum you impart via both your arm and your legs COMBINED.
Stphen Curry:
Do Anthony Davis shooting arc and foot placement
TheBoss77:
My shot gets broken when I had a high arc
dru713281:
Seriously ? This is wasted time in a gym............learn how to measure your ark and every shot will be perfect , it’s very easy to do I learned how in 10 seconds of instruction , now train your eyes to look at the sameness spot of the rim or net whatever’s makes you comfortable but it has to be deep center rim if facing straight in front , now learn hand placement and which finger to shoot with and how to surge so you get shots off quick ! Now hire me for more details ......I’ve played shooting games with pro players and won on a constant basis ........
pathnativejam:
Haaaaaaaa haaaa this is garbage. NO. NO.... Not all. Game speed and Game scenario only.
First off , this dude moves funny, and slow and the movement is NOT Game like.
Geno's UCONN women's practice video is where all these commenters should be at.
simon zuluaga:
So helpful, thanks a lot man after a week of doing this I feel much more confortable with my shoot and went from 5/10 to 7-8/10 triples
web:
Can you just shoot the ball for me?  I can't hit the broad side of a barn.
