keep a stady pace as you head to the basket dribbling the ball,stop dribbling in enough time to take 1 to 1 1/2 steps to jump in the air as high as you can laying the ball gently off the glass backboard.You want to try to hit the top corner of the square at a angle that will let the ball drop thru the hoop.GO GET EM KID
There are lots of ways to do a layup but one word of advice that you should always aim for the box on top of the basket. If aim for the box 9 times out of 10 the ball will go right in to the basket.
If you are a right handed player you start by picking up your dribble and ur first step will be with the left foot, then jump off the right. When u shoot go up with two hands and finish with your right hand. Try to hit the square on the back board to help u make it. If ur left start with your right foot and finish with your left.
when someone dribbles up to the net, takes 2 steps and then shoots the ball (usally in the top right corner of the backboard).

If you are shooting anywhere on the court from 3 pointers to layups to foul shots always aim for the box on top of the basket.

Depends on how and what you are comparing to with a basketball player. For example. "His lay up was so perfect it was like he the best basketball player ever to make such a shot."

In the NBA, a layup is when the player takes FOUR steps towards the basket and leaves off one foot (usually opposite of shooting hand) and attempts to score a basket (backboard or no backboard). The term is the same in NCAA, and HS basketball just 2 steps instead of the NBA 4 stepper.
