I have told one move of Michael Jordan Magic Johnson and Bill Walton.
Now one of mine.

The little finger and the thumb form a straight line at just short of eleven inches. Yes form a straight line.
My hands wouldn't be large enough to be able to hold a ball up side down. Except for that straight line.

I know one thing I should be able to do that nobody my size should really.

One fact.

Second thing I really can't hold it so I can do any thing I want to with it.

Time to calculate what can I do to help it stay in that hand.

Never wave it around like you can do anything you want with it.

This move is to bait him to being to far out in front of you.

The ball is out in front it can't come back on a lay up.

The arm is not totally straight. At the last second extend the arm move the hand from under the basketball to extending up in front of the ball.

Now pull the basketball back with the hand in front of the ball. Till you need to slow the balls motion.

The hand is now capable of carrying the ball stright up.

The player should be out where the hand was and not where you are shooting the ball from.

It's actually a straight on Skyhook an old friend of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. I like to see the ball when I shoot.

Gathering information from all parts of the action of shooting. Not just the idea you have about how hard you shoot it do to what you feel your muscles did.

Robins in the candy lifesavers. Upto about 35 feet. The throw is made accross the front of the body. From the corner of one eye, accross the the other. That is just to get the line of the start of the arch and the velocity of it.

We do have amasing calculators with in us.(about 2 out of 3 hit the rest within 2 body lengths.)

Our head did more math than we could put on paper till the 1700s.
