Working out individually does not allow one to take true game shots because the shooter does not have a passing option or a defender. However, many players invest time practicing their shot on their own or with an individual trainer, and here are a few drills that players can use.
I have reduced the amount of form shooting that I did because the shots are not game realistic and often develop a technique other than the technique that one uses in games. Therefore, players essentially learn two skills: One skill for form shooting drills and one for games. Why have a separate skill simply for form shooting drills?
One-hand form shooting presents even more problems:
Instead, I start with simple catch-and-shoot drills:
Or, by oneself:
The next step is shooting off a curl toward the basket:
Or, a similar-type drill by oneself:
Finally, a drill that adds some variety:
And, a drill that uses shots off the dribble:
Not the best drills because of the lack of defense and passing options, but when practicing by oneself, a player has to sacrifice something.
