== == == == To be honest with you, there is no "best" way to shoot the Basketball. There are ways that are better than others, but there is no best way. Everyone starts out with some sort of shot with their own special stroke. If that way works for you and you don't get blocked very easily or often, than that way is the right way to you. The good techniques of every shot contain a good arc, a follow through, and good elevation.

The best way to shoot a basketball is to make an L with what ever arm you shoot with. When you are about to shoot the basketball, put the ball right at the corner or right at the front of your head. Next bend your knees and target the goul, then jump. Right when you stop in the air and you are about to come down you release the ball.
