How do I get a "shooter´s touch"?

Put Some Arc On Your Shot

Get the ball up in he air with a nice high arc. The arc will give you a bigger margin of error because it basically increases the size of the rim. Look at the rim coming straight down, and then like at it from head on like a line drive shot coming straight at the rim. The rim shrinks when you shoot a line drive. Just ask Shaq, who throws darts at the free throw line and is notorious for his bad free throw shooting.

Great advice. Looking at the rim in that angle and visualizing that will burn it in your brain everytime you shoot. GET ARC ON IT!

lol, I don't "be hatin' on shaq. He's an all-time great Center. He is also known for his horrendous free throw shooting, much of which is due to his "lack of arc" on his shot.
