One of the worst things you can do is think about your shooting mechanics during a game. Thinking about your shot is for practice, NOT for games! In fact, you should only think during certain parts of your practice. It’s ok to think during a form shooting session or when learning a new skill, but once you start developing rhythm and get further into practice, don’t think!

DID YOU KNOW that a shot with a flat 35 degree arc only has .6 inches of margin for the ball to clear without hitting the rim? The shot has to be almost perfect to get a swish. BUT a shot with a 45 degree medium height arc has a 3 inch margin of error! That’s right. Just by increasing the arc of your shot, your margin of error could increase as much as 500%!
