Springbak Basketball Shooting Tips – The Shooting Stroke

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Springbak Basketball Shooting Tips – The Shooting Stroke

The Shooting Stroke – Line of Force:

From the legs, through the shoulder, then upward about a 60 degree angle.

Basketball Shooting Stroke Never break this line of force.  Why?

1) You lose power from the shoulder.

2) You slow your release – remember when you break that line you just have to bring the ball back to the line, that all takes time.

On a jump shot, as soon as you reach the top of your release gravity immediately pulls you down. So, the balance point of your jump shot is short indeed.

That is the main reason when you reach the top of your leap you should have a quick, short, tight shooting stroke. You can be bring the basketball up to that position when you are still going up-but when you reach the top you need a short (3-4 inches) tight, quick (meaning a quick explosion) of the upward push of the shoulder and extension of the forearm.

The Springbak Springsoles will also speed up the entire process for you. This short, quick reaction will activate an elastic reaction inherent in the wrist and fingers.

This shooting stroke will speed the roll of the basketball out of the hand and up the fingers toward the rim. The quicker the ball rolls up the fingers, the better the backspin on the basketball while in flight.

Next week we will discuss exactly why the shooter/scorer needs a quick release. Have fun and try out this proven shooting technique for yourselves, NBA style!

Basketball Shooting Tips from Springbak, Inc.“Want to become a star basketball shooter and scorer?  What is the main key?

As a professional basketball player, I learned to develop a short, quick release to be competitive in the NBA.

Why, you ask? For several reasons:

1) A short, quick release will enable to get up more shots with less defensive pressure.

2) When you get to the top of your leap on a jump shot, you have a short, quick enough shooting stroke to start and release the basketball before gravity pulls you down and thus off balance. This is why you will never see a great shooter with a lot of arm motion in his or her shooting release.

What are the keys to a short, quick shooting release?

1) Have the basketball under control in both hands as you set your feet to start your upward jump on a jump shot. This is extremely important!

2) As you are on your upward jumping ascent, take the basketball directly up to the shooting or power stroke position without taking the basketball out of your line of force (from your legs, through your shoulder and on a 60 degree angle towards the rim).”

Basketball Dribbling Tips by Former NBA player William Crow – Chairman Springbak Inc.

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Basketball Dribbling Tips by Former NBA player William Crow – Chairman Springbak Inc.

Basketball-Dribbling Always dribble with your wrist cocked back. Why?

* With your wrist cocked back, your arm, by muscle mechanics is lower to the floor and thus the height of your dribble is much lower and thus quicker and easier to control.

* The basketball on your dribble is closer to your body (primarily your hip) and is thus farther back from your defender.

* When your arm is behind the basketball this allows to PUSH the ball PAST your defender when making a drive toward the basket. When your hand is on top of the basketball, wrist extended, you can only push the ball downward to the floor thus eliminating any threat to push the ball past a defender, making your opponent more aggressive defensively.

* You can put greater stretch on your fingers and allow their elasticity to control the basketball, and increase the speed of the dribble.

Enjoy these tips and have fun!
