Kinesthetic memory in Basketball is when you dont see the rim at the moment but your muscles unconsciously react to shoot the ball and you can only depend on where your hand and wrist twist it. Having done the shot several times gives the muscle, a memory that is based solely on impulse. Impulse that is driven by believing to see what cannot be seen.

As in basketball, if you ar doing a reverse backboard shot and the basketball board is not transparent, then you will only have to rely on your muscle's angle calculations. While in basketball defense this can be exemplified through stealing the ball in the passing lane.
