I am very glad that this masterclass is here as it has guided me and helped me to become a better player at basketball

Amazing class where learned a ton about how to actually play basketball with proper technique. As a hockey player, I really was interested to learn about the mechanics of Steph's movements and how he thinks about the game. That is exactly what this course offered and I am very happy to have taken it. Would highly recommend.

Stephen Curry's MasterClass is excellent! The lessons provide very good details and drills to help basketball players improve and enjoy the game.

This class was amazing! Well produced. Broken down into bit-sized pieces. I have been playing basketball for 30 years and this class taught me so much. I think the biggest takeaway for me is how important footwork and balance (it starts there) are in achieving consistency and taking your game to the next level. Thank you Steph Curry! You are the man!

Curry:“I naturally have soft touch, good aiming, and good rhythm.” Me:“wait what???”

Wow...this class gives me the thoughts of KNOWING what reps & form shooting...hundreds, thousands of reps...will create in your ability to "show up" on game nite....StanleydelGozo

Love that instead of just talking about nothing, he actually shows how to do it.

for hand positioning Where do the pads of the fingertips end? Is it the first second or third knuckle.

A fellow student

do you keep your shooting hand floppy throughout the shot or just after you get to the set point. Any help would be great

This was a great lesson for improving my basics. I wish my basketball teacher taught me this early on. I could've improved my accuracy a lot sooner!

A fellow student

If somebody says he's the best shooter ever, I would believe them because Steph is.

I am having trouble with this lesson. How do you practice the mechanics taught? I want to raise my release point, but I am having trouble with it. Should I get a coach to help me and learn from the videos? Any tips someone could give me I would GREATLY appreciate. Thanks!

I tried to used what I learnt in this video with my teammates and it is remarkable how the accuracy of the shot improves when you follow the guidelines for a correct mechanics of shooting.
