You gotta love driving baseline and finishing strong over top of your defender. A baseline drive is the lowest point on the court and putting yourself behind the defense as a ball handler throws the defense out of wack. It’s hard to see ball see man when the ball is that far below you so it creates cutting opportunities and space fills for your teammates. Once you’ve beat your defender he’s already thinking “damn, I didn’t cut him off this close to the rim now I have to make it up with a block”. An over eager defender is always at a disadvantage especially at this point, not only do they have to retime your jump because you didn’t go straight up but they also have to jump at a distance where they don’t get their hands caught in the net. This mistimed jump usually ends in a body foul, poster dunk, or both.
VOLUME ALL THE WAY UP!!

Anyways you know the deal TAG a shooter who has a quick shot! Who do you thinks faster? Mine or @calebnashfeemster
Here we are working on that quick release!
Steph Curry does this best. He tries to shoot so fast in practice that in a game it’s easy for him. He makes his practice harder than the game so that the game actually slows down. Curry doesn’t take his time in practice shots, he rushes his shots. It makes him push his limits! He has developed a mindset of being comfortable being uncomfortable!
Once you have mastered your mechanics and fundamentals of shooting, practice shooting as fast as you can with still proper mechanics... in order to become the most efficient shooter you can become. A quick release leads to more shots off in a game which leads to more chances to score!
