Learn how to shoot like Damian Lillard

Should you invest time in learning to shoot like your favorite NBA players?

Yes and no.

Yes, you can steal parts of Damian Lillard’s shot form. What is his BEEF basketball shooting process from start to finish? Which mechanics give him an advantage? How can you put it to test and practice? Steal, but maintain your own originality to develop your own natural form.

No, you shouldn’t try to steal the whole form from start to finish. Each player’s jumper or free throw motions are as unique to them as DNA. What works for him won’t work for you, and you will never find your natural form.

So, study all the great scorers and shooters like Michael Jordan, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kyle Korver, Ray Allen, Reggie Miller, and Kobe Bryant. See what they do best. What they do different. How it suits their body type, playing position, and the defense they face nightly.

When you find specific mechanics you like, perform form shooting practice for at least 3 shooting workouts, minimum 100 shots per workout, ideally 500. Test the new mechanics and decide if it’s for you before it becomes a permanent habit and your form evolves.

Ultimately, how well you shoot the basketball in real games against highly-difficult competition is what matters.
