Hey t bone,
I can't guarantee that you'll be shooting threes like A.I. or Kobe, but here are a few tips that should help:

  • Power Up Your Legs - Shoot a three-point shot just like a regular shot except bend your knees more to get more power behind your shot. The further you are from the basket, the more you'll need to bend your knees.
  • Square Up - After you get the ball, turn your body so that it's in line with the basket. Make sure your feet, knees, hips, shoulders and head are all in line and facing the basket. If you're leaning one direction or the other while shooting a three-point shot, chances are, you're not going to make the shot.
  • Stengthen Your Triceps - The triceps are the muscles on the back of your upper arm and are the ones you use when extending your arms on a shot. Ask your P.E. teacher or coach to give you some exercises to build up your triceps and you'll find it's easier to shoot those three point bombs.
  • Practice With a Friend - Having a friend to practice threes with will help your shot big time. You'll be able to get more shots off (since you'll have someone to rebound for you,) and you'll also have someone to look at your form to see that you're shooting correctly.

    Cheer-leading is a sport - most people think that it is not - but it is Yes it looks like they are just cheering on the football players - but their routines and being able to hold up girls over their head takes strength, and they work really hard to make everything look good.

    I liked cheering for the underdog, so I've always cheered for the Cavs. I'd like to see how this year's line-up goes, though our past best point guard left for the Celtics.  :/

    Mayo lost against Dublin again. 1-16 to 1-17. I support Mayo, and I am horrified to be honest. I don't want to sound like a sore loser, but I think Dublin fouled Mayo way more times than they were punished for it. Mayo rarely got any frees and the last free of the game was a minute before it ended and Dublin were taking it from very far away. Of course, they got it. Up until then, it was 1-16 to 1-16. I guess Mayo won't be taking home the cup again for another year.
