                            Yo, this video was terrible, they barely show you anything 🤦‍♀️ here are some better tips 100% guaranteed to help, and it's free.

                            1. Keep your shooting arm as vertically straight as possible ⬆. Most people arm while holding the ball tilts inward ↖ which calls for last-minute adjustment, inaccurate.
                            2. Utilize your strength. if you have upper body strength don't jump as much, for smaller people utilize your jump and gauge when in your jump should you should release. Test your release at the start of your jump, at your mid jump and when your jump has peaked.

                            3. When bringing the ball up to shoot bring it up centrally to your body so your aim is perfect.

                            Try this 1000% better method
