Former NBA Coach George Irvine and How To Shoot a Basketball

Jaime IrvineCorrespondent IFebruary 23, 2010

For the first release on the new, former NBA coach and player George Irvine discusses the proper way to shoot a basketball.

Irvine has coached many great shooters, including Reggie Miller, Chris Mullin, BJ Armstrong, and Byron Scott, to name a few, and he has developed a keen sense of what makes you a great shooter—being fundamentally sound.

When teaching younger players (or players from all ages), it is pertinent to understand the basics and make sure the fundamentals are second nature in a player’s game. These articles take you step by step on how to create the proper foundation for shooting, then how to expand your skills to take you to the next level.

In addition to the shooting skill articles, we are releasing three basketball shooting drills (Mikan Drill, Shooting Consistency, Two-Man Shooting) that help players improve their shooting stroke. All of these drills are “NBA Coach Certified”; therefore, you know that these drills will help you improve your game.
