Despite being basketball’s most important fundamental skill, shooting technique is perhaps the game’s least-taught fundamental. Charlotte Hornets director of global scouting Adam Filippi addresses this deficiency, drawing on years of experience as a player, scout, and skills coach in Shoot Like the Pros: The Road to a Successful Shooting Technique, perhaps the most comprehensive analysis of shooting mechanics ever published.

Filippi covers shooting mechanics, the mental aspects of shooting, free throws, game situations, strength and conditioning, teaching methods, and workout drills for advanced levels.  Shoot Like the Pros also features dozens of instructional photographs, diagrams, and tips from many of the top shooters ever to play the game, including:

• Jerry West
• Glen Rice
• Craig Hodges
• Ray Allen
• Kiki Vandeweghe
• Danilo Gallinari
• Chauncey Billups
• Derek Fisher
• Chuck Person

With the help of some of the NBA’s biggest stars and Filippi’s expertise, Shoot Like the Pros will give both players and coaches at all levels proper direction on how to improve shooting technique.
