Clutch has a stroke, but on the real ... that drill isn't doing anything special. You could just spin the ball to yourself as if you're catching a legitimate pass from a teammate and stroke a straight up jumper and it actually gives you practice for game situations. When in ball do you walk up to a dead ball and shoot a jumper? It just doesn't make sense. Anyway, your lucky ass obviously lives in a warm climate. When did you film this? You can go outside in shorts already? You lucky, man.

Hmmm, I'm guessing Houston.

I live in Houston, but it wasn't exactly warm when I filmed that. Somewhere in the 50's I think.

Anyway, the drill IS doing something for me. Bringing the ball up from such a low point naturally causes me to use more legs, which trains them for my regular shot. Spinning the ball back to me doesn't create that effect. Once I've gone through that drill for a few minutes, my legs are nice and warm and it's embedded in my mind that I need to use more lower body. In turn, my regular jumpers look and feel much better.

Trust me, I didn't just wake up one day with this jumper. I shot like Marcus Camby until my sophomore year of high school.

That is Clutch for sure, and the other was sizzle for sure as well.

I've seen pics of both of the guys, multiple pics, and they are recognisable in the vids too.

By the way, nice shooting guys. I wish I had a consistent jumpshot. I'm either on fire or shooting blanks, a bit of a Dennis Scott.

sizzle:
-Make sure your feet are square all the time. On the shots you missed your feet weren't square, the others were beautiful. Don't worry about release point so much, it looks fine. I've seen high level guys that look pretty much shoot from their chests getting their shots off. It's about the quickness of the shot and creating adequate space. Not everyone has a frickin' high release point.

Clutch:
-I've seen that drill done before by a guy some religious gu ywith insane range down at the gym back home, guy doesn't even play basketball, but is insanely talented at shooting. Best looking shot I've ever seen. He nailed about 7 half court shots in a row one day in front of me using your technique. When you were missing, you seemed to be slipping back into what you say is your old shooting form, not completely but your elbow flares out a little. That's my biggest problem, when I stop thinking about what I'm doing my elbow pokes right out. Over time I've felt myself do it soemtimes and I cork my body to make up for it.... sometiems it works. haha.

Anyways, nice work guys on posting vids. I'd like to be running with either of you guys with nice strokes.

That picture of Ray almost brings a tear to my eye, it's a thing of beauty.

Well, when I said Marcus Camby, I meant it lol. Nothing in that video is anywhere in the same ballpark as my old shot. Yeah the elbow can get out of whack sometimes when I get lazy, but trust me it never gets as bad as the ugliness that was my old form. I used to shoot completely over my head with 2 hands like some hybrid of Hakeem Olajuwon and Larry Bird. You see, I was about 5'7" in 7th grade so I started out playing post...never really needed a jumper. Then I stopped growing...topped out at 5'9" around my freshman year in high school, and that's when the coach told me I had to come back with a jumper after the summer or have a growth spurt. Guess which one happened.

Anyway, here's another video. It's basically an edited/redone version of the one that Skywalker requested.

As for me, ask Skywalker. In the original version of that second video I posted, I said "that's for all the h@ters on insidehoops" or something like that. It was like a year ago so I don't remember exactly :

Yeah, I don't think Clutch would be lying. He seems to be a respectable dude.
