Proof that these drills work
This video is proof of how you can improve your shooting.
I’m a right-handed shooter. And when I recorded this, I had never shot free throws left-handed.
After a couple of weeks of practicing with the same drills I’ve given you in the book, I was able to knock down opposite hand free throws at a high percentage.
If you look closely, you can see that I still made a few mistakes with my form and follow-through. But by sticking with the training, I was able to get to a point where I could make a high percentage.
And you can make great improvement with your shot too if you stick with the training.
If you want to print out these drills to take with you to the gym, you can right-click each image to download. (More drills being added later.)

The importance of video analysis
The use of video is an important aspect of improving your game, especially shooting.
Kobe Bryant talked a lot about using old video to analyze the games of great players. He incorporated a lot of the moves and techniques he saw in those clips into his game.
Near the end of his career, he created a show called “Detail: From The Mind Of Kobe Bryant”, where he analyzed the games of other pro players.
You can use video to help your own shooting, as I talked about in the book.
