    I've noticed that even though I turn my feet, my torso still stays squared
    and my elbow still flares out. Any pointers on how I can stop this from
    happening?

    Lol I actually can tuck my elbow in without the tilt, and other than
    tilting and deliberately touching my elbow to my rib cage, I think I have
    the main idea of this video down. To add on to the palm rotation idea, I
    read once that you shouldn't be able to see ur pinkie when you've reached
    your set point (or wherever it is when ur about to start the elbow-bending
    shot motion).

    I read on a website that you should point ur shooting foot towards the
    basket and line up ur shooting arm with it so that its directly aligned
    with the basket, with a squared stance. I've only had time to try this a
    few times and it didn't work too well. Do you still think I should tilt my
    feet, coach? Or maybe just add the tilt to the website's idea?

    Also coach, should our chests be tilted as well? I think Coach Rocky said
    once that whether u tilt ur feet or not you should keep the chest squared.
    What's your opinion?
