How To Have The Perfect Basketball Ball Rotation

Many basketball players wonder if they have a good basketball ball rotation on their shot. Everyone thinks that you need a basket to get shooting reps up. I’m a big fan of isolating your shooting form. This means eliminating a basket or a game situation with the intent to really solely focus your mind on your mechanics. Using this method you can get THOUSANDS of shooting form reps up in a short period of time without worrying about rebounding, passing, etc.
DON’T GET ME WRONG, the BEST way to improve shooting is to actually shoot shots, but we aren’t always in a position to do so. Here is a great alternative in the morning when you wake up or at night before bed.

Basketball ball rotation keys:

🏀 Ball Rotation
🏀 Height
🏀 Accuracy
🏀 Release Point
🏀 Catch/Lift Point

Steph Curry, Dirk Nowitzki, James Harden. What do all great shooters have in common?! High arcing shots. This is the fastest and simplest way to increase shooting percentage.
For my younger players: Simply reaching the basket isn’t enough. If you can’t reach the basket from a desirable angle then you just shouldn’t be shooting from that far. Machines like @drdishbball come with nets that not only help capture the ball but more importantly force you to shoot with the necessary arc to make more shots!
This winter, start getting some shooting repetition with a higher arc and watch your percentages improve!
