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 joined 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.
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!
Any 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."
A 'bank shot' is a shot that hits the backboard before going through the ring for a score or not going in to create a rebound situation.
As far as I know, that's called a "Bank shot"
A shot in basketball is an attempt to throw the basketball into the hoop.
for some its just a regular shot ( about 4 people in the nba shoot like that), for others that joke, they call it a prayer
By saying "glass".
It's for getting a kill with a Tomahawk that bounces of a wall, floor etc. There are some videos on YouTube which will illustrate it properly, just search "black ops bank shot…"
You must throw your tomahawk at an object (wall, barrel, vehicle, etc.) and have it bounce off the object and kill someone. -_Plomdead_-
When a basketball player passes the ball to his teammate and the teammate makes a shot what is that called?
Assist if you've ever watched Basketball you should know
Out of bounds, same if it hits the very top or back of the backboard!
