Of course you do, but not only efficiently but consistently, to be able to compete and make an impact. Every year, millions of young players decide that they would like to play basketball, and a lot of them hope and dream of one day doing so for a living. The foundation of any solid basketball game is an excellent jump shot, and figuring out how to execute one is all about being able to study, focus and practice tirelessly.

It is also important to build certain muscles to perform a jump shot at the top level, including biceps muscles, triceps muscles, forearm muscles and wrists. I understood this at a young age and tried to make my arms look like Popeye.

However, an ideal jump shot, the shooters elbow is in a L-shape and is pointed inwards, the shot is released while the shooter is at the apex of their ascent, which essentially gives them an effortlessness of release and almost anti-gravity feel, which creates a gentle backwards spin on the ball. Much like many delicate acts in sports, shooting a basketball is all about creating a steady rhythm and pace.

The drawing back of the arms and the thrusting forward of the arms and fling of the wrists should be done at the same speed in order to create a motion that is not only easily replicated, but one that also produces the best results. Following through when shooting the basketball is also of the utmost importance, and failing to do will usually result in a shot that comes up short of its intended mark. Remember, reach in the basketball hoop cookie jar when following through.

Simply put, a great jump shot comes from being balanced and relaxed, rising comfortably, releasing while at the top of the jump and following through with the shooting motion. A surefire way to sharpen all of these steps of the process is to practice tirelessly. One last note that many coaches forget to teach, try to teach young players to position the seams of the basketball all in one direction.

This will help increase the chances of the shot going in because of the rotation. Flip the ball out with a twist 3. Catch it off the bounce 4. Rotate the basketball in your hands without looking until you position the seams of the basketball all in one direction 5. Do this 50x in a workout, outside, etc. You eventually want to become comfortable at catching a pass in a game without looking at the basketball and quickly rotating the seams all in one direction before shooting.

You will not get good at this unless you practice it religiously Many of the greatest shooters in the NBA, such as Paul Pierce and Kobe Bryant, are known to take several hundred shots per day while practicing. NBA legend Michael Jordan built himself from a dangerous slasher into an unstoppable scoring machine by perfecting his jump shot over the course of his illustrious career, which is an encouraging sign to the millions of young basketball players around the nation who are hoping to one day make their mark at the highest level.

While there is no sure way to shoot at percent, perfecting your shooting technique can certainly get to a higher shooting percentage. Here are some tips for improving your technique: Focus Look for the rim and backboard as soon as possible. Keep your eyes on it at all times. Never look elsewhere while taking your shot.

Stay confident and tune out all other distractions even your defender. Bend and Balance Your feet should be shoulder width apart with each side providing your body with equal amounts of power and balance.

Your shooting foot the one on the same side of your body as your shooting hand should be slightly in front of you, and both feet should be pointed towards the rim. Loosen your legs up and bend your knees before taking your shot.

Line Your Body Up Picture an imaginary line between you and the target. Keep your eyes, shooting foot and shooting hand within that straight line. Hold the ball just above your waist.

Try to get all seams of the ball in one direction. Never rest the ball in the palm of your hand. Your fingers should be spread wide but not so wide that you are uncomfortable.

Keep your shooting hand under the ball instead of behind it. Your thumbs should make a T when holding the ball, but not touching. Keep your wrists loose and your elbows close to the body. Use your other hand to balance the ball and nothing more. Release, Jump and Land The ball should always stay in front of you.

Push the ball up and out so that it will arc into the basket. Remember to keep that imaginary straight line in your head as your hand works to push the ball towards the rim. Jump in a natural way. Stay with the Shot Once you release the ball, you should land in the same position in which you started. Your hands should stay in the position they were in when the ball left the tips of your fingers, and your wrist should be loose. Your shooting arm should arch as if you were reaching in the basketball cookie jar.
