I think you need to find a release point higher than 5'0" off the ground if you don't want to get rejected every time you put up a shot.

give the kid a break guys.... but yeah be prepared for a lot of sarcasm dude.
you can take just about anyone on the boards here and they can do a tape showing htem hit 10 3's.

theres no in game situation in your shots its just stand and shoot + who knows how many takes it took to hit those yanno?

just look for comments like that.

great editing it may have been more believable if we would have seen you shoot and then run to the next spot we dont know how many times you shot the ball before you made it. and that form is ugly man it looks like you were struggling to get it to the rim. im not trying to put you down but your not even D-league worthy

well in my spare time once i put a sticker on my hand lowered my ring and jumped up and taped the backboard, i got 9.5 inches so i could dunk a 9 foot ring and probally grab a 9.5 ring, im only 14 how old are you?

This is what I was going to post.
I need to see no editing. Just shot after shot after shot. Some nba players will hit 20-30 consecutive shots in warmups.

The video is one dimensional (though I think this may have beena joke and not a real 'tryout' tape, so I'll leave it at that).

bro, i play horse with a semi-******** kid who gets SSI money every month and he hits those shots...yeaaaaaa...the shots where u can stand there for 10 seconds get set, focus and concetrate like you do...a real nba player or shooter can dribble to wherever and jus spot up...plus you dont even jump when you release bro even earl boykins would stuff the **** out of you

You shouldn't be shooting from your chest, it denotes a lack of shoulder/arm strength to shoot regularly above your head, and you'll get a higher percentage with more lift in your legs. You want to release at the top of your jump with as high of a release as possible, right now a 5'0" guy could block your shot. you don't want to be shot-putting the ball if you shoot 3's regularly. Your footwork is good tho, and you have a good arc on your shot.

A few of suggestions.
1) Show yourself hitting some of those 3's playing 5 on 5.
2) Shoot one continuous video. It looks like you edited out a ton of misses. I realize that's probably due to your friend's camera phone, but still.
3) Ignore the haters.

Work on your form to get it above your head so that your shot won't be denied.

exactly.........you edited the tape to only show 10 shots you made, if you really made 10 in a row you would have kept the camera rolling and did them all in one shoot, your a cornball who's begging for attention, and honestly 10 college range uncontested 3's probably wont even get you on a d-2 team plus your vertical is like 3 inches so you should probably just stick to nba 2k9 buddy

for what it's worth, i can make ten college uncontested threes over 20-40 shots (depending how lucky I get), at 6'4" and 240, and I start for a very low-level D3-level team that is basically intramural.
I couldn't sniff a D2 team...

I think we underestimate just how good some kids are at basketball.

uhhh what are you talking about? most nba centers are about 270-300 pounds, and a lot of that is pure muscle. i'm not fat by any means, but i'm certainly not rock-chiseled.

You guys are picking on a 16 year old kid who for the most part I am sure he was kidding (you noticed he said the CAVS thing was a joke)

Give him a break... PSD is getting ridiculously with the lack of sense of humor... everyone is so uptight about stuff...

Who cares how is form is? Why is yours any better? As long as it works.. Nobody cares about Shawn Marion's form...

However with that being said.... I thought you were going to like dunk from the free throw line or sumthing... but try recording on a better camera and try something a bit more creative....

good luck :cool:
