Basketball is a game of continuously changing tempo requiring players to be able to sustain high levels of continuous effort, especially in scoring points, which when not scored, leads to wasted efforts1. It is one of the world's most popular and widely viewed sports. The commonly used techniques are shooting, passing, dribbling, and rebounding, as well as specialized player positions and offensive and defensive structures (player positioning) and techniques. Typically, the tallest members of a team will play "center", "power forward" or "small forward" positions, while shorter players or those who possess the best ball-handling skills and speed play "point guard" or "shooting guard.Competitive basketball is primarily an indoor sport played on a carefully marked and maintained basketball court. Points are scored by shooting the ball into a horizontally elevated hoop.It has been assumed previously that increasing muscle strength will increase throwing speed. The strength of shoulder adductors, wrist extensors, and elbowextensors had predicted throwing speed. The overhead motions such as throwing,javelin throw, servicing in tennis, etc. are highly skilled movements. Such movements requireflexibility,muscularstrength,coordination,synchronization,and neuromuscular control of the arm (Keith 2000).The throwing action may be divided into three distinct phases, namely the winding-up phase, the cocking phase, and the follow-through phase.
