I find it super interesting that many of the best shooters in the NBA all do something that I was told not to do when I was a younger player learning to shoot.
One of those things is the placement of the ball in your shooting hand. I was always told to have space between the ball and your hand, but when I look at Curry, Klay and Korver...they all set it on the palm of their hand.
I have even found that I naturally set the ball on the palm of my hand when I shoot it. The objective was always to get the ball to come off of your finger tips...so most would just place the ball there to begin with. But if it comes off of your finger tips, why change it?
I would be interested to hear what others have to say about shooting.
