And THAT'S the part that's got me and a whole bunch of others FASCINATED.
Our unique and weird brains.
Let's face it ... PEOPLE COPY PEOPLE ALL THE TIME!
The whole country of Japan and now China are famous for it.
Television and the media is famous for it.
How come they call it "reality TV" when THIS IS REALITY!
The things we do we do over and over and over as though they were "it" whether they happen to be "it" or not.
And yet ... our human brains, when confronted with just a small amount of evidence, and now demonstration, that:
a) this is a shot
b) a possible way to make free throws
c) a better way to make free throws
d) an EASY way to make free throws
Have decided to hesitate .... and NOT .. universally ... even TRY
this shot. [p.s. I've noticed with other things, this can be an important clue - to "how" we "behave"]
What's the deal?
As long as we ALL do it it's OK? 70 Percent? How does 35 percent
even become "acceptable"?
ANSWER: Hanging out with a group of 35 percenters
What does it do to our little notions of athleticism when an ENTIRE PLANET of SKILLED and PRACTICED individuals .... ARE SO LOUSY at something that is SO EASY? When an old man can beat you?
You know ... to me ... that part is VERY INTERESTING
... but remains IRRELEVANT
... because ... again to me ... the true test of the value of this shot will not manifest itself to YOU and or to ALL THESE PEOPLE ... until they PRACTICE and DEVELOP the SIMPLE SKILL .... of making the shot
. Then ... their comments begin to have more value. The best way to make this shot is a) or b) followed by a demonstration of the ball going in the basket .. damn near every time ...
Do you know there are people who play basketball today .... who CAN MAKE THIS SHOT ... underhand ... but don't shoot it? in public? hello?
Again .. the whys and wherefores are interesting ... but they all lead to MISSED FREE THROWS.
Mr. Biedrins UNDOUBTEDLY has REASONS
why he does what he currently does ... even though
, let's face it ... the current results are HORRENDOUS ... RIDICULOUS ... TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE
.... according to me ... the results he currently receives are IMPOSSIBLE
The interesting thing to me and I'm sure to some others IS ...
NO MATTER HOW MUCH I "SAY" about this shot ... IT DOESN'T MATTER
What matters is basketball player's stepping up to the line and shooting it ... as close to correctly as they can NOW ... slowly improving over time until they almost CAN'T MISS.
You see ... I say that's what would be happening if basketball players
began to develop this shot and practice it. "REASON
" ... I suggest ... actually SUPPORTS MY VIEW
... because MY VIEW comes from Science AND EXPERIENCE
. Want to have a free throw contest? Want to learn how to shoot this free throw?
SO FAR ... my brain is convinced that ANYONE
who begins with step one, standing at the same place, every time, and proceeds through the follow through ... ANYONE
can be what ... almost as good as "me"? better than me? damn near the same because you can only make so many ô¿~
So ... what would "I" do about it?
Anything that EVERY
can think of ...
to Get "OFF" Of It
... Get "OFF
" of what it is that causes you to hesitate and prevents you from developing the skill of lifting your arms with a basketball in your hand ... from 15 feet ... so that it goes in the basket ALMOST EVERY TIME!
GET OFF OF IT!
Go the line ... shoot the shot.
That's ONE ...
Now ... keep going ... until you're good enough to achieve your goal.
I GUARANTEE YOU WILL HAVE ALL THE HELP IN THE WORLD TO GET THERE
Science is on your side.
Rick Barry will be on your side.
I'll definitely be ON YOUR SIDE!
Will Be On Your Side
Teammates may snicker and laugh ... but .. when the ball starts going in ... DAMN NEAR EVERY TIME
... they'll look on in amazement !!!
:D Wanna See?
Bend The Wrist
ONE MOVEMENT OF THE BODY!
Lift ... Lift ... Lift ...
Personally ... on the first session ... I don't really CARE if the BALL EVER GOES IN ... [Not possible ô¿~] What you begin with is whatever happens now when you lift your arms. What will happen, as you do it over and over and over again, is you will learn EXACTLY HOW HARD you need to lift those arms. How will you learn? The BALL GOES IN!
Then, you'll repeat the motion over and over, day after day, until you could lift your arms about that hard ... in your sleep. Do you know any carpenters?
I'm told they can hammer a nail just so ... EVERY TIME
... and they NEVER ... or ALMOST NEVER ... hit their thumb. AND, I'm told, IT'S NO BIG DEAL!
What you will end up with is the arms performing almost exactly the same way ... EVERY TIME ... and the BALL GOES IN !!!
You'll get better. There will be a tomorrow.
There's more than one video available
.. with instruction ... and there will be more.
