When we think of genius, we usually think of nerdy scientists mixing together chemicals, working on computers, or writing out horrendously long equations. But there’s also such a thing as genius for sports. Prominent writers have compared the genius of Michael Jordan to that of Einstein. Sure, Jordan probably would never have been able to create the theory of general relativity. But then again, Einstein would never have been able to win game 6 of the 1998 NBA finals.
I think it’s safe to say that sports genius is a lot different from science genius. But when it comes to shooting free throws, what kind of genius should you have?
The answer is a bit of both. Free throws need the same quick thinking you need to succeed during regular play. You need to cope with distractions and game pressure. But they also require strategy. To raise your percentage, you’re going to need to know what technique works. That’s where the seven step method comes in. Created by Dr. Tom Amberry, the world’s champion free throw shooter, they help you to hone your free throw abilities, so you can master the strategy and improve you in the moment thinking.
