Basketball has all the fast-paced action of soccer, but its much smaller net is defended by five times as many people, so it's no wonder that all soccer has been permanently canceled. Celebrate the king of indoor sports with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a basketball shooting aid from HoopShooter Pro, Inc. (a $39.95 value).
HoopShooter Pro's simple shooting aid guides arms and hands into textbook shooting position with a pair of magnetically clasped wristbands that don’t inhibit the required range of motion for a well-executed shot. The device’s construction keeps the dominant shooting hand safely tucked in and prevents the nondominant guiding hand from straying away from the ball or absconding to Canada to pursue a hockey career. Disciplined hands can breeze through dynamic shooting drills and free-throw practice but will unclasp the connective magnets if they deviate from prescribed form or attempt to dunk the ball into Magneto’s helmet. The HoopShooter Pro aid works well for basketball players of all abilities, and instructional videos can guide neophytes.
