Steph Curry is just simply fun to watch, I always talk to players about the importance of watching the game and watching great players. Take advantage of the opportunity out their to watch players like this every chance you get!!
Obviously we can look at a lot of things that Steph Curry does, his changing of speeds and direction with his ball handing, his movement w/o the ball, his finishing moves and ability to finish around the rim, his craftiness and basketball IQ, his level of confidence and toughness that he plays the game with, his shooting, shooting and more shooting. B/c of all these things I suggest you look at this video several times.
Pertaining to his insane ability to shoot the ball look for some of these things:
1) Look at Steph’s ARC and how the ball drops into the rim. Majority of the time the ball is dropping down into the rim. I’ve seen a lot of players struggle with getting ark on their shot. a couple things that may help with ark are: shooting one motion, raising your release and relaxing your shoulders back, and working on shooting up and over a defender or D-Man can be helpful.
2) Look at his footwork (how he utilizes the hop as well as 1-2), he used the hop often off the dribble as well as on catch and shoot whenever he needed to get the shot out quickly. the 1-2 is good to have in your game as well but know that the hop allows to get into the shot very quickly. Also look at how Steph is always on the balls of his feet before he springs into his shot.
3) Look at a few of his shots in slow motion to see what his overall technique looks like. Specifically how he starts and ends his shot.
Look at how Steph likes to start with a slight turn and ends with his shooting hip and shooting shoulder aligned to the rim. also for those very athletic guys out their, look at how he shoots the ball in one fluid motion, he releases the ball on the way up which will help with your arc and power. There are some shooters that elevate and shoot at the peek of their jump, but always remember their are a lot of benefits to shooting earlier in your jump, ON THE WAY UPWARD…
