Shoot Basketball at Proper Angle

Summary

The basketball goal is wide enough such that 2.5 basketballs can go through it simultaneously. To maximize shot percentage, the shooter should shoot the basketball at a 45 - 50 degree angle.

The 45 - 50 degree angle increases shot conversion significantly. To shoot ball at this angle, the fingers on follow-thru hand (as it’s still in the air) should be above the “square” on the backboard.
