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.

Shoot the way that's most comfortable for you.
Don't try to copy any NBA player's shooting form. Trust me I would always try to change my shot up and would end up shooting inconsistently in games cause my mechanics would be all f*cked. Now I just stick to one style that feels right for me and it works.
