It takes countless repetitions of doing something the right way to really develop a great shooting motion. Sometimes it is important to breakdown these motions and really lock in on the details of shooting a basketball.

It is a great basketball shooting drill to use at the beginning of a workout to warm up and to really lock in on correct shooting form.

- When the basketball drill starts, the player will shoot a catch and shoot bank shot from the elbow.
- Immediately after that shot, the player will use the chair as a down screen and then curl to the elbow for a catch and shoot shot.
- The player will run down to the block (working on coming into their shot with 1-2 footwork) for their next shot.
- Continue this pattern for 10 shots and then switch sides.
