Bank Shot Rule
1) If I can see half the rim exposed I can bank the shot
2) If there’s more then half the rim exposed or no rim exposed I will not bank the shot
3) Target- ball it on the way down
4) Don’t be short on a bank shot
5) The peak of the shot should be at the top of the basket
6) 80% of all shots are missed short
7) Don’t shoot fast but get ready to shoot fast
8) Get the work done before I catch the ball- hands up, knees bent
9) Negative motion
10) Everything I’m doing is to speed up my shot
