Cim, have you ever had a teammate or player shoot FTs underhanded like Rick Barry ? I can't remember ever seeing a Mainer do it in HS or college.....but I can only go back to the 70s. Barry said it was easy to do and all big men should try it....Wilt Chamberlain tried it for awhile but it didn't help him much.

PF07: I agree with you other than Rick Barry and Wilt I have not seen any player at any level consistently use the 2 hand underhand foul shot and I go back to the 40's. I don't even remember teammates just trying to shoot them underhand in practice.

Well Wilt was way before Barry, but Barry's key to success was in his techniques which others including BIGS did not understand.

Thanks for the response. The reason many bigs at all levels don't shoot foul shots well is the same now as it was in the 40's.

They just don't know the real secret to getting a soft enough shot so if the ball hits the rim it has a chance to still go in and not have it hit the rim and bounce away without a chance to go in.

The answer to question 2 of What is basketball's perfect shot is now on my "Off the Rim" Blog in the Bangor Daily News. Just go the BDN News line, hit sports or blogs and you will find it.

The question was how can a shooter know if they have made a perfect basketball shot?

"Question 1: What is basketball’s perfect shot?

It is a shot that goes thru the basket’s rim in the exact dead, center, and middle of the basket. "

P.S. Bob, ... the exact dead (sic) center of the basket, also happens to be the middle. :roll:


Tal1957: I do know that, just trying to really, really emphasis that point AS BEING SO VITALLY IMPORTANT. Thanks for reading my blog and thanks for responding.

I heard 2 former NBA players on local radio last week say that AAU basketball is basically garbage and is contributing to the demise of fundamentals and overall quality of the game. More focus on winning and not developing skills.. but yeah.. High School coaches should have hands off periods.

bam: Thanks for the response.

Who were the 2 former NBA players?

There are good coaches and bad coaches in AAU just as there are in high school.

However, AAU coaches don't have "helicopter parents" to worry about, because if the parents don't like what the AAU coach is doing then they can find another team/coach.

It is much easier to teach the "Life Lessons that cannot be learned or taught in the high school classrooms" as the parents have no one to complain to accept the coach. No school boards, superintendents, principals, AD's, etc. that will not back them about complains about playing time or squad selection.

For the few Maine kids that have the potential and want to try to play D-1 AAU is absolutely necessary.

Just my opinion.
