If you are on the left side of the ring then the best way to go is to aim for the top right corner of the backboard.

If you are on the left of the ring then its best to aim for the top left corner of the backboard. Try these at home and you are most likely to get more of your shots in and enjoy this little tip. I know this because I'm a state basketball player and this is the proper way and always works.

Well think about this if you shoot the ball over the backboard it will likely go out of court and tha ball will be awarded to the other team. but also even if you did shoot the ball over the backboard it is called a voilation of the rules so the other team will get the ball so most likely the other team will get the basketball even if the same team catches the ball
