Which is better and why? I feel like, I should be shooting up high like Kobe, in order to be able to shoot over defenders without getting blocked, in order to make myself a crazy offensive threat, but at the same time I don't feel that accurate right now.

there are advantages to both releases. high lets you shoot over defenders and low gives them less time to react which works better off the dribble.
