you have to be patient and build your strength up so you can get the shot in and you have to practice before you ever do it in a game. You only do a half court shot when it is appropriate like if your 2 points down and there is 2 seconds to go or if your get thrashed by the other team and you want to have some fun and just shoot it at the buzzer

When would a basketball player attempt a half court shot?

A basketball player typically attempts a half court shot towards the end of a quarter, when a player only has a few moments to either take or shot or let the clock run down to the end. Often a player cannot travel more than half the distance up the court, so must take a shot from half court because the clock is running down, and play will stop.
