Here are some quick thoughts on the importance of shooting, not only for individual players but also as a team. If you're a good shooter or a team that can shoot the ball well, you have the ability to spread the floor and force the defense to guard you outside their regular coverage. Being able to shoot from outside will also benefit your post players. If you have a dominant post player, teams will no longer be able to double down in the post because then they will be giving a shooter a open look for three. We all know how crucial and how quickly a three can really change the momentum of a game. So a good shooting team has endless options on the offensive end. It puts the defense in a tough spot, as well as the coaches to come up with a specific game plan just to slow your shooting down. If you go back a couple years in the NBA Finals when the Spurs played against the Heat, you'll notice that they shot the heck out the ball.
Here is a video of when the Spurs broke the single game record for made 3 pointers. Watch how they penetrated and dish which is another great offense teams should add to their game plans.
A good shooting team versus a not so good shooting team can be the difference of winning a championship or a state title. If you lack the outside threat then you are very easy to defend as teams will just pack it in. People get to caught up in the dribbling and the dunking. The art of shooting has been on the downslide and Pro Shot is trying to bring back how important a jump shot really is. Because you can have all the moves and crossovers but if you can't shoot then that's what we call "A million dollar move with a two cent finish" Don't be like this guy!
