Mike Procopio

Team shooting warm-up, don't correct a lot at the start of practice. 3 balls, make 7 shots, repeat from the other side, then move to the next shot. There's no fluff, just gets shots up. The only thing they look for in shooting is elbow to eyebrows on the follow-through for good arc. Jump as high as you can, elbow to eyebrows, hold with hands up.

See Shooting - Ten fingers, Basic 4.
 
Option - to speed up the drill, start with another player behind 1, see Shooting - Tauer on the move.

a)

1 cuts across the middle for a pass from 2, inside-foot pivot and baby jumper.

After passing, 2 runs to touch the 3-point line with a foot then comes back for a pass from 3 and shoots.

They teach inside foot coming off a downscreen or pin-down, permanent pivot foot on the wing, and both feet in the post.

b)

1 runs from halfcourt for a pass and shot at the elbow, 2 runs to halfcourt and back to the elbow after passing.
 
(Two groups can compete, one on each side)
 
See Shooting - Catch and shoot.

d)

1 gets a pass at the top of the key and takes a one-dribble pull-up going right, 2 waits for the dribble before following.

For a right-hander (left pivot foot), the footwork going right is R-L-R shoot.

Repeat with passes from the other corner for a one-dribble pull-up going left, the crossover footwork is R-L shoot.
 
See Shooting - Tauer triple-threat.
