Let it Fly: How to Shoot a Basketball

Let It Fly is a series of articles that break down the many components that go into proper basketball shooting. While most casual players don’t need to dive into the advanced concepts, fundamentals and training drills as much as pro ball players do, we can learn from the best and apply the lessons into our own game and train at our own pace.
