It's great, learning the tiny details Steph has to share. My little brother, a senior, learned alot despite not getting to go to the Underrated tour.

One of the best classes, because I've learned different techniques.

I’ve learned how to push myself to the limits in my workouts and be a great shooter ball handler and basketball player

After about only 10 practice sessions (using just the first two lessons), my shooting % is up by 20% and my confidence is growing, growing.

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.
