I keep it very simple when it comes to shooting: Focus. Balance. Follow Through. I tell myself that three-step process every time I shot a foul shot. I take two or three dribbles, spin the ball, and make the damn shot. That’s pretty much it.
My high school coach taught me about the bail hole in the exact middle of the free throw line; I line my right toe up with that hole, creating a straight line from my shooting hand to the rim.
The rest is business between the ball and the net.
