Basketball – myths about free throws

There is a wealth of information about basketball, skill development, practice planning, history, game statistics, personal profiles, gaming goods and services, etc. Of course, the age of the Internet has a great impact on the availability of all such information.

Even though my shooting instructor, master, guru, specialist, surgeon, therapist, world record holder, and so on. though well-intentioned, ordinary, repetitive and boundless irrelevant.

Although this topic is about free throws, I want a three-point shot and a field shot, whether it's a jump, a shot or a hook shot. (The loop shot is roughly the same as a shot jump, unless your body is 90 degrees to the chest protector, even if it is one or two legged jumps).

The real reason for this article is whether it is a free throw or In general, the information about shooting that was taught or taught in the past generations can not be very good, because exploratory statistics prove this.

The XXI. collects the recording statistics into the next pool. For example, the United States High School team starts out with a free throw around 65%, with high schools averaging 68% and professional players reaching 72%. You can either bid in either direction or you can make one or two percentage points. But the point is that only 5-7 percent disparagement of highly paid professional players from average American children. In my theory, professional trainers were once high school, high school and junior high-school coaches. It seems that what they learned in the early days, as coaches all "stay with them in their careers and without having too much personal development." If you are not a great shooter, you have difficulty teaching another person how to be a great shooter. those who, through hard work and possible good genes, become great shooters, but great shooters seem a rare breed.The green belt can not teach black belt principles on carats If this is not the case then how can our national average be mediocre or in most cases you can get a "C" degree and even a "D".

I do not intend to reduce or undermine the millions, but it is unimaginable for the trainer to be everyone for everyone, who can not be a doctor, a psychologist, spiritual leader and all the men of basketball.

Many trainers strongly teach different departments such as offenses, defense or creative strategies, etc. But it's very hard to be great in every aspect of the game and the shooter seems to be avoiding us because it's very difficult to perfect the accuracy of the shooting process. If your coach reads this, just ask yourself, "Can I shoot all my players in my team?" Do I respect the players as a shooter or are my forgery permits quite whimsical? Most children do not know more than coaches and do everything they can to teach. Most coaches hopes that children who play some kind of magic for them must be big shooters. Shooters are not born. They made. Each player can have a big shooter, but he has not got all the information he needs along the line.

So what's the myth of the big shootings?

first myth. Your leg is very important to shooting.

Not true. They're just there. Of course we all kneel on our knees, without saying anything. But the beginner of the game feels embarrassing about which foot is in front or back. The best position is the shoulder width, and the right hands on the right leg forward, about 6 inches. But if you have the right strength, you can stand next to each other. Eventually, however, the longer you go from the basket, the more you move your right foot to help move the impulse. But the legs have nothing to do with "accuracy", which is the most important thing in shooting a free thrower

2. myth. Keep your eyes on the front, back or rim of any part of the entire shot.

Many players probably did this because they were taught early. In the beginning, we obviously look at the frame to measure the distance, etc. At that moment, when the ball is released from the fingertips, the eyes cross the ball where you can now see the ball entering the basket, long or crooked. This gives great feedback. Funny that Michael Jordan, Reggie Miller, Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash, Peja Stojakovic and others. Try, you will like the direction you will be given.

3rd myth. The dominance of the eye is a big shoot-out factor.

Many great shooters have little conceptual dominance. If you are going to use an eye, hold your right eye on a right hand to see the inside of the shot arm as it aligns with the center of the flange. If you just keep your left eye open, you create an equilateral triangle with your left eye, right shoulder, and right wrist so you can lose the shooter's "line". Both of us are open to the viewpoint.

4th myth. Following the shooting, imagine that your hand is placed in a cookie jar.

Now it sounds like a true scientific measurement that can be duplicated for a great free throw. How big is the cake? How big is the opening? How deep is the glass? Are cookies in the bottle? Do I try to get a cookie while my hand is in the pot? This is ridiculous. The bad thing about this concept is that it forces you to close your fingers to reach the bottle and closing the fingers is really a shot flip that should be avoided. Do not forget that at the beginning of the shot, the hand is on the ball as the ball needs to be released. A wide hand is a strong hand, and the fingers are responsible for what each player does to the ball. Read more about this in another article.

5th myth. Make sure your body is square in the basket when it shoots.

This is not necessarily true in every case. The most important part of the body, which must be rectangular to the basket, the shoulder, elbow and wrist of the shot. You can create the free boxes as good as the basket or side. This means I'm standing on the free throwing line with the width of the leg. Now perfectly square to the basket, both feet one inch from the line. Now move your left foot behind the right leg, while the shoulder width extends and looks toward the left wall. Turn your head right and now shoot into the original basket. Now see how big the deal is to square. As long as the upper part of the body is against the basket, it improves scoring chances due to the body balance. If it's close to the basket, though there are no rules for the squares. Just turn your hand to level the body out of the box.

6th myth. It is very important to shoot the seams.

This means that your fingers run parallel with the seams or the grain. This kind of ambiguous statement. This can not be a factor and does not affect good or bad shooting percentages. It can shoot just a swell with the grain, the grain or nothing. But in free throws, as time goes by, place your index finger at the center of the ball and are perpendicular to the seams. It's just a personal preference and not a mechanical one. You have ever noticed that in the warmth of a game that never fades under the seams during a shot. Do not you have time.

7th myth. You need to improve the rhythm of your rotation.

Rhythm, shmythm. You have little or no relevance to the shot. During the free throwing we see all sorts of rhythms like kissing kisses, praying, cross-marking, strange trapping, etc. After the ball is in the "shot pocket" – the recording routine is dead and has no effect on the shot. Unless you are a small child who uses a boost to reach the basket, there is no value. Again, it is only a personal preference for what may seem cool. Who knows why the players are doing the odd things. Try the free drums straight from the pocket of the shot, without hiding. No difference. Just wasting more time. The less is more. The shot itself is less interested in the prepared routine.

8th myth. Johnny has recently been shot dead.

You hear that so often. What does the failure mean? Shooting 20%, 30% 50% of the free throw line, 3-point line from the field. I think the whole world is in constant shooting, and the only reason for this is poor admission mechanics because of lack of scientific information. Below 75% of the free throw is actually just over average hair and nothing to boast about. You see my point. It seems that when Johnny has a great scoring game, he has run out. Large shooters rarely lurk, because the shooters are developing enough.

ninth myth. The ball must be below the elbows.

When should the elbow under the ball? There are thousands of players who are very thin and thin, making them more flexible than muscle-tight or heaviest individuals. Most people simply can not place the ball in the center of the ball (the ideal place) before the shot. All right, the bullet is in the pocket of the shot, the elbows are not directly below the center of the ball. But, since the ball is shot and the bottom is up, make sure the elbow moves under the center of the ball before it is released. This can be a few inches. The ideal "shot pocket" is between your eyes and a few inches above your forehead. You can see that it is physically impossible to place the elbow directly in the center of the ball. DE as soon as the shot is up, the ball is reached to the elbow as high as possible, so the center of gravity, leverage, balancing and dissolution all work with balanced synchronism, so it has uniform and proper pressure on the important fingers.

10th myth. You have to believe in yourself and you can trust when you shoot.

This comment is at least positive but does not do much to the recording mechanics. Faith alone does not make the shot. What comes first the chicken or the egg? Is there a player with great confidence because they are consistently great shooters or do not have enough confidence because they are controversial shooters? Getting confidence has resulted in consistent success. Consistent failures result in a low confidence level. Prove my point with this drill. Let's get right below the basket and shoot 50 points. Chances are that 49-50 (even with bad mechanics). Confident in trust, huh? Then exit the 3-point line and shoot 50. Is self-confidence reduced? All this is about being able to correct personal bugs. The cleaner the mechanics, the greater the confidence. They go hand in hand.

Was there a difference in confidence level after the drill?

eleventh fact. You can not bring silk purse from the snout. Every basketball player is able to be a very good shooter. Most are mediocre because they have mediocre information. Our (coaches) instructions are mostly blurry, obscure or obscure. It is imperative that the ball always and always has the right information for everyone. I know this is getting deeper, but the deeper the nicer it is. This is really empowering.
