It’s important to know proper shooting form so you can learn how to shoot a basketball properly.
When you’re about to take a shot, plant your feet shoulder-length apart and bend your knees before extending upwards and pushing off with both of your feet into the air.
When you’re in the air, keep your arms locked and extend them forwards while leaning backwards.
Make sure to keep your hands slightly below and inside of your shoulders and elbows locked out.
Then, point the ball towards the basket while keeping one eye on the basket. At this stage make sure you have a good balance on the balls of your feet, knees bent, with arms extended forward from you in front of you at chest height forming a ‘T’.
Just before releasing the ball, extend your arms upwards. After this, open your fingers to release the ball into the air towards the basket.
So this is how to Shoot a Basketball.
