The "Ten lies of shooting"

Discussion in 'Player Development' started by James LaMacchia, Mar 15, 2015.

  1. Below i have pasted the "10 Lies of shooting" which a bunch of videos that is showing what this individual feels are some things that just are not true, thought it would be a good topic to post to debate among coaches.
    For the record i am not buying into all of these, but some of them make sense to me, lets here what you think?

    Thx James for pasting shooting lies. I have picked up golf these last few seasons and come to realize a shot is a shot and to focus on form, rhythm, and balance maintains concentration on a high level without getting attached emotionally to the outcome.
    I pretty much agree with all he believes to be true. I really like the dip, its like a forward press to start your golf shot.It relieves tention and gets your stroke, going to the basket.

    Worked with a player this morning. Once she squared her shooting shoulder and hip to the rim, she was a lot more consistent. It's just a small thing, but it helped her a lot

    Yes, and i am finding out the follow through really ties the shot together!

    Huge fan of Pro Shot. Coach Hoover just sent a great email today about the importance of verbiage when explaining things to players, but I think it will be very helpful when explaining things to other coaches, specifically the turn. A lot of people really bristle at the concept of teaching turned feet, so if it is explained instead as aligning the shoulder/elbow/hip (shot line) to the hoop (without mentioning that this will cause a natural foot turn) there is FAR less resistance. Interesting ideas to be sure
