    I've been watching allot of your video's lately. Well ever since I found
    this page. But I showed this page to my coach for my school team today at
    my practice. We have a bad habit on missing allot of jump shots and layups.
    We aren't very tall either. I'm only about 6'0foot tall and im the center.
    Could you possibly make a video on how undersized post players and or 2
    guards can be better at finishing around the rim and mid-range jumpers? The
    mid range I struggle with at times.
