The three types of basketball shots are: One-handed shot, hook shot, and the two-handed shot.
The farthest shot ever made in basket ball history was in 1916 by Tim Scarth shooting a basket ball 120 feet.
That is just the name for it. There really isn't a specific reason- that was just one of the slang names given. I have looked all over the Internet for the answer to this question and the only reference to a Bunny in basketball I can find is from the film 'Space Jam' where Michael Jordan is j…oined by the Looney Tunes to repel a Martian attack by beating them at basketball. According to recordholders.com, Harold "Bunny" Levitt of the Harlem Globetrotters made 499 free throws on 1935 April 6, a record that stood till 1975; his obituary in "The New York Times" of 2006 May 5 discussed his basketball career, and said that he was 96 when he died.

As soon as the ball leaves the players hands, that is a shot attempt. A shot attempt can be a mid-range shot, a full-court shot, a layup, a dunk, or any other type of shot. Fancy passes and alley-oops that look like shot attempts or get very close to the rim are not considered shots. If the ball …accidentally goes in, however, then the alley-oop is in fact a field goal, and is recorded as a shot attempt. Only free-throws are not counted as shot attempts. They go in the free-throw category. (MORE)
Answer . Since dribbling the basketball with TWO hands is called a foul, dribbling with ONE hand must be just dribbling. IS there a special name for one-handed dribbling?
Answer . \nOutside of the "key", but in the same half of the court, there is another line, roughly in the shape of a half circle. Shots made from outside of this line are awarded 3 points. They are sometimes referred to as "field goals".
yes! different basketballs affect your shoot because of the texture,brand,and how much air the ball has.sometimes it has to do witht the weather like if it rains or snows then the rim will be wet or frozen.
where you run toward the key dribbling the ball from one corner of the 3/4 line then take 2 steps once you enter the key and take your shot if you get what i mean?? here's a vid that might help which i didn't completely watch so yeah..i hope it helps http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCoWtU7mJ3Y
Answer . Rebounding is one of the most importantaspects of winning basketball games. Offensive rebounding gives yourteam extra chances, and free throw opportunities, and frustrates thedefense. Defensive rebounding is a key part of good defense in general,limiting the offense to just one shot. A …good thought is "one shot andout". Defensive rebounding combined with a quick outlet pass can be aneffective offensive weapon, getting the transition game and fast breakgoing, for a lay-up at the other end. All good rebounders "have anattitude" that every rebound is theirs and are very aggressive on theboards. Youâve got to want it! Coaches love good rebounders and willreward them with more playing time. You may not be the best shooter orball handler, but if you are a strong rebounder and defender, you willget to play. Good rebounders are important " role palyers ".. Defensive Rebounding The first important aspect of rebounding is gettinginside position and "boxing out". The player who gets the insideposition usually gets the rebound. The opponent may "reach over" andcommit a foul. These "over the back" fouls can be very costly late in agame when teams are in the bonus free throw situation. . Another key is always knowing where the ball is, so assoon as you see the shot being taken you get the inside position, andbox out. It helps if teammates communicate and yell "shot!" when theshot goes up.. There are three parts to a defensive rebound . . Box Out . Attack the ball, go get it! . The outlet pass . "Box Out!" . \n All players must learn this skill, as much as any\n other skill in the game. Even the perimeter players (guards) must box\n out. Oftentimes, the missed three-point shot will result in a long\n rebound that our guards should get if they box-out properly. Also, we\n donât want the opponentâs guards slipping inside for the inside rebound\n and put-back. \n \n When you box out, you must first make contact with the\n player you are guarding. Locate your man, get in front of him/her,\n pivot facing the basket, bend over, get wide with your feet and arms\n out, and put your backside into the offensive player, sealing him/her\n away from the hoop. Be aggressive, and don't let the offensive player\n push you under the basket. If you get too far under the basket, a\n taller opponent with long arms can simply outreach you for the ball.\n Keep your man away from the hoop. Keep your eye on the ball flight, and\n go get it!\n \n \n \n \n \n Attack The Ball! \n After you have sealed (boxed-out) the opponent, then\n go aggressively after the ball. Attack the ball, jumping high with both\n arms extended, grab it strongly with both hands, and "rip it down".\n Expect some physical contact. Youâve got to be strong and tough inside.\n Once you have the ball, protect it by pivoting away from the opponents,\n and "chin" it, by bringing the ball under your chin with elbows out.\n But you must not throw an elbow... a sure foul, often flagrant. \n \n The Outlet Pass \n Once you have the ball, think "fast break". Get a\n quick accurate outlet pass to a teammate to get the transition game\n going. If you hold onto the ball too long, the opponents may tie you\n up, and depending on the possession arrow, all your hard work is for\n nothing. So immediately pivot away from the defenders toward the\n sideline and find a teammate to pass to. Pivot on your outside foot.\n Wheel around and make a strong, sharp two-handed overhead outlet pass\n to your teammate on the wing. Only dribble if you have to, if you are\n in trouble and need to create some spacing to get the pass off. Pass as\n soon as you can safely hit your teammate. But don't make a bad forced\n pass, and lose possession. I hate it when one of my players makes a\n good box-out, gets the rebound, but then simply throws the ball away\n with a bad passâ¦ all the good, hard work ruined by a bad pass. And\n those kind of turnovers can kill you, as the opponent may get a quick\n shot or lay-up after the steal. \n \n Team Rebounding Concepts \n . The rebounding triangle . \n With each shot, try to establish a triangle of players\n boxing out around the basket. Have one player of each side of the hoop\n and one in front, so that you have a triangle of players boxing out\n around the hoop. Don't get too far under the basket, where a taller\n player can simply reach over your head for the rebound...box them away\n from the basket. . Weakside rebounding . \n Another tipâ¦ realize that about 70% of missed shots\n from the corner or wing go long to the opposite side of the hoop. So\n make sure you have a weakside rebounder when the corner-wing shot goes\n up. . Long rebounds . \n Especially against teams that like to shoot the\n three-pointer (which when missed often results in a "long rebound"),\n whenever possible try to have two perimeter defenders (rebounders) get\n to the wing-elbow areas on each side to help pick off those long\n rebounds that go beyond the guys boxing out down low. . Rebounding missed free-throws . \n Not boxing out the offensive rebounders along the free-throw lane loses games... see "Boxing Out on a Free-Throw" below. \n \n Offensive Rebounding \n Offensive rebounding should be a very important part\n of your team offense in general. Nothing frustrates the opponent more,\n than their playing good aggressive defense, and you get one, two, or\n three offensive rebounds for more shots at the hoop, until you finally\n score. The keys are you've got to be aggressive and want the offensive\n rebound, and you must be quick on your feet and try to get inside\n position on the defender. This is a good way to pick up extra easy\n baskets. Some people call 'em "trash" baskets... I call 'em\n hard-working, smart, demoralizing baskets... "back breakers". \n \n Getting Position: The defender should already\n be between you and the hoop and trying to box you out. Make a fake one\n way, and quickly move your feet and slip around him/her on the other\n side. Once you are inside, now you box out. Another technique is to\n "swim" over the defender. If the defender does not have his/her arms\n up, put your forearm on top of his/hers, pinning it down (without\n grabbing or holding it), and then move your feet and step around and\n over the opponent's foot on that side and get inside rebounding\n position.\n \n Always know where the ball is and just assume that every shot will be missed .\n If the shot is coming from the corner, remember that 70% of misses will\n go long on the opposite side, so be ready on the weakside.\n \n Once you get the ball, be strong and power it right back\n up to the hoop, usually off the glass. There is a good chance you will\n get fouled, and a good chance for an "old fashioned" three pointer... a\n put back with a free throw. Expect contact, be strong, and try to\n finish the shot. Work hard the entire game and make your opponent work.\n You can actually wear the opponent down by the end of the game. When\n your team is behind, the two key elements in catching up and winning\n are playing great defense and rebounding. If you can stop the opponent\n from scoring, you give your offense a chance to catch up. Many\n championship games are decided by this tough inside play... not the\n outside jumpers. It's not always pretty under the hoop, but all good\n coaches know how important this aspect of the game really is. You will\n hear TV commentators talk about "points in the paint" as a key in many\n games. Most of them are retired, very successful coaches, and they know\n by experience how important.\n \n Boxing Out on a Free-Throw \n It's very important to secure the rebound after a\n missed free-throw, to avoid those extra chances for the opponent, and\n late in the game when you are behind and time is a factor, you can't\n let the opponent control the ball and the clock. \n \n The defensive rebounders in the lowest space along the\n lane must block-out the adjacent opponent in the middle space. The\n defender should get close to the offensive player. For example, if you\n are on the right side of the lane, have your top (left) foot as near as\n possible to the offensive player. Then when the ball hits the rim,\n immediately slide that foot over into the lane in front of the\n opponent. The stance should not be too wide, but wide enough for a\n strong base, so that the opponent cannot push you under the basket. If\n you are too wide, it will be more difficult to slide that leg over.\n Turn your body with the bottom (right) foot back off the lane line a\n little (never have both feet touching or parallel to the lane line).\n Most of your weight should be on the bottom (right) foot. Keep your\n arms up with your elbows shoulder height. Not only does this get you\n ready to rebound, but if you let your arms down, a savvy offensive\n player may put his arm on top of yours, pinning it down (and this is\n often not caught by the officials). Use your hands and arms also to\n feel which way the offensive player is going and block him/her out!\n \n The rebounders in the top two lane positions must\n communicate. One should make contact with and box-out the shooter. The\n other should go aggressively to the middle of the lane to get a longer\n rebound in the middle. These rebounders should position themselves in\n their space along the lane as close to the basket (and the middle\n offensive player) as possible.\n \n We also teach our players to "pinch" a strong\n offensive rebounder... the bottom rebounder steps in front from below,\n while our top rebounder on that same side steps in and "pinches" from\n the top. Then our opposite top rebounder boxes out the shooter. Players\n should communicate this when getting ready along the free-throw lane. \n \n Rebounding Out of a Zone Defense Rebounding out of a man-to-man defense is fairlystraight forward, usually with clear-cut box-out assignments.

When you are blocking a shot it is critical that you look at the basketball. If you don't then you will not know where the basketball is and you just might hit the person and get a foul. Once you at least smack the ball away then you look where it went and not stare at it but then go after it.
First, put one hand on the side of the ball and one hand on the bottom. Then pivot your hands upward. Push the ball with the bottom hand and steady it with the other. Release the ball. Remember to follow through with the shot. Good Luck!
in basketball you get foul shots when your shooting and someone on the other team makes contact with your body
\nAny shot made from anywhere on the court is called a "field goal". This is why you often hear sports announcers say, "he is one for three from the field."

There really is no formula. I took forever to figure out what to do. If you shooting a free throw then go to line make sure you right foot is slightly up further than your left. Now focus of on the goal, don't be worried about your feet now. Once you start moving your hands to shoot you can kinda go… up on you tippie toes or jump or anything you perfer. Now bend your knees. Make sure whatever hand you shoot with is on the back and the other kind of supports it on the side. Look at the box behind the goal and aim there! Now you take it up above you head and shoot WITH FORM! Most people think you can just shoot...no. Keep your form until that ball is out of the net! No one cares how stupid you look with your hand in the air if you make it! Now if you are in a play or someone is trying to block you, you have to have this down fast. but while shooting a free thow take your time. Just remember that this might not come naturaly to some people and could take years of practice, even though my dad almost played college ball, I still was pretty bad for a while...just dont give up!

Yes, as long as they do not foul the person. You can foul a person by:. Hitting them, even by accident. . Blocking them without having both feet firmly planted on the ground. . There are more ways to foul a person I just can't think of all of them right now.

Well you have 24 seconds to score and if the ball touches the rim, the clock starts agian from 24 seconds.
This is because the amount of freethrow you get depends on the shot you take and wether you make it. If you take a 2pt shot and miss you get 2 shots. If you take a 3pt shot and miss you take 3 shots. but if you make the shot your points count and you get an extra shot hence the 1 freethrow
If a player in basketball is taking a shot is fouled and the ball goes in what call does the ref make?
the shot counts and he gets one shot at the free throw line for a chance at a 3 point play. its called an "and 1"
I'm from Chicago, and have heard this term for over 25 years. We called it a crip' when I was young because 'anybody' should be able to make one; even a crippled person. Hence the term crip', and in no way a shot at those persons who are handicapped.
Its called an air ball because it soars in the air as it misses the net.
Don't throw from your chest. Hold your arms up and throw the ball leaving your right hand in a bent position.
Hundreds of basketball players have ended a game by making every shot they had attempted from the field. All it takes is one made shot to be perfect.
A three pointer shot is above the free throw line. If you want to make it, try perfecting your shot.

First determine what current results. Move farther away from thegoal and observe results. Right or left of center of the goal,think body rotation. Being farther away from the goal willexaggerate all movement, improve focus and requires greaterexertion and control. Doubling the distance to the basket…, willmake the goal appear 1/4 the original size it was at the firstdistance, and force twice the right/left shooting accuracy. Withlateral errors reduced now focus on the vertical component of yourshot. Keep the forward speed of the ball close to your originalspeed, but increase the vertical component to give the ball time tomake it to the basket. Work your legs and arms to build strength.In the example of doubling the distance from the goal, doubles thetime the ball will be in the air, or double the vertical velocityor 4 times the exertion on the ball. Next move around the floormaintaining your distance to the goal. Soon you will becomeacclimated to your new shooting distance, and increased shootingsuccess from the original distance. As a bonus you can successfullyshoot from any distance in between. (MORE)
