I played tight-end in high school football and always had issues with getting the long ball over my shoulder (the lights and excitement was too much). What I did was to play more... the more you play on the "big stage" the more confidence you'll gain. Find more leagues and more games and build up that confidence. I find confidence is what makes great player great and good player good... don't confuse confidence with attitude or cockeyness, they are different and I don't welcome the latter on my teams.
seriously i do too but i found a way jst calm down n play ur game n step on da court wit confident i play for pennwood n we jst won state champion dis so u have to jst step on da court n b like dis is da game dat i will show erryone n dont worry bout messin up erryone mess up jst play ur game put it dat way
it's probably a comfort problem so you are going to have to pretend that you are at home shooting , if that doesn't work start playing basketball with random people to see if that helps bring your shot out.
just trying ad trying u could solve the problem...it's not easy..but it's the only way...I had the same problem when i would play tennis and after 4 year it stopped.....now i've this problem with the basket like u..
i use to have the same problem but then i found out its because your used to the enviroment at your house. If you can(this is what i did and it helped)go to different locations about every 2 days so you get used to playing in new arenas.
It does sound like you are rushing your shot. If you are shooting off the catch,
make sure you are ready when you receive the ball. Feet set, etc. Then, take
time to "gather yourself" as you catch it. Take a short breath as you prepare to shoot.
If you are shooting off the dribble, you must get your eyes up on the backboard. There is a lot going on, but you must see your target!!
yeah just act like your the only one there... and block out every1 .. get in the zone
lol .. it works ... just tell yourself... rite over the top of the rim.. and block everhting
out . that wat i do lol ":D
