Basketball is not just a sport. It is a science. While there may be a lot of athleticism and strategy involved with winning a game, a lot of math needs to be taken into account when it comes to actually shooting. You got to throw the ball at just the right velocity and at just the right angle so that it can bounce on and off the rim and/or backboard and straight into the basket.
Don’t believe it? Then play Basketball Shoot to see why! You’ll shoot a wide variety of baskets in this handy little app. Physical aptitude and shooting technique won’t be needed, but you will need to be aware of the physics involved with shooting.
