Bob Knight Mid Range Shooting Drill
Being able to shoot on the move is a different feel from simply just catching and shooting. It is important to be able to do both so that you are a complete shooter. This basketball shooting drill is great because it works on so many things at one time. It improves your footwork, mechanics, form, gives you repetitions, and also builds up your conditioning. Being able to shoot when you are tired is mental as well as physical. This drill will help you break through both of those barriers.
