I was going to make a thread about bank shots and how youngins never use it. I use it all the time, you don't have to worry about arc or rotation, just placement. I actually bank 3s on purpose from time to time but usually indoors off glass boards since it's more forgiving, unlike metal outdoor ones and with that distance it's hard dropping it in soft- even with good placement, given the distance the ball tends to bounce off hard and messes up ur bank. When I drive into the paint I also like to do a straight on bank too.
I love bank shots as you can tell. To work on it I play HORSE all banks.
I don't bank three point shots but I always practice banking from everywhere on mid range. I don't really shoot a lot of three point shots because I tend to be like get open on mid range and just shoot it or slash and try to get an easy lay up.
I try to bank all my shots because I'm a terrible shooter. I'm extremely streaky. I'll make like 4 shots in a row, then miss 10, then make 2, miss 5, etc. Whenever I play and I think I'm "feeling" it, I try to intentionally bank everything, except corner 3's.
Yep. I'm a knockdown shooter and for me it just seems to make sense to bank shots when you are the 45 angle. It is much easier to gauge distance when using the backboard (for me at least). My best shot is the top of the key. I'm a sniper from there. We usually play to 30 (1's and 2's). My ppg usually are about 2 bank threes, 2 from the top, 1 from the side, 2 driving bank shots to my left, and 1 layup (so I guess ~13 out of the 30). It helps a lot that we play with 2 pointers, and I'm usually by far the best shooter on the court.
