Shooting Form
« on: November 28, 2021, 07:05:18 AM »
Is there a correct form for a stationary/set jump shot?
Just based on looking at it, it would appear having both shoulders and feet square to the basket would give the player the most stability (little twisting).
When the player turns sideways so one leg is pointing more towards the basket than the other, the torso is more twisted which to myself would appear to be much more unstable and hence leading to a less consistent shot.  However, this appears to be a very popular shooting style.

Feet square with the bucket with the foot on the shooting arm side slightly in front is ideal. Sam Hauser was about as text book as they come.

Sam had a great stroke...but they teach "text book" differently now...especially when your talking very athletic guys taking difficult jumpers.  Tyler Herro actually gets used a lot to teach how to essentially "square up" while in the air.

Interesting. Watching Steph's lean-forward jumpers when he's on the run to create separation is interesting. It's like the fade-forward instead of the fadeaway. Still, shoulders & hips squared. Feet akimbo to maintain balance through release.
