Hello, my name's John McQueen. Today we're gonna talk about the proper technique surrounding a set shot in basketball, okay? There are three things you want to be in position to do when you shoot a set shot. Number one, you need your feet and your legs to be in proper position. Your feet need to be shoulder-width apart, there needs to be flex in the knees, not bending but flexing the knees, and this will do a couple things. This will give you good balance, this will help you get distance on your shot, and it will also give you other options. You can dribble, you can pass. Secondly, your hips. Your hips need to be square with the basket. In other words, they need to be facing the basket. This makes sure that you're in a good position to get a good shot while looking at the basket. Everything needs to be square to the basket, and this is done by the hips being in the proper position. Last, your hand and your arms. Also your position of the ball, how you hold the ball. Now, the proper way to hold the ball is to allow the ball to sit in the hands, but not in the palm. You should be able to reach your fingers in there, not in the palm, and then out front of the body with the second hand on the opposite, opposite side of the ball, you can bend, shoot and release the ball. The elbow, the wrist, the knee, everything on the right side needs to face the basket.
