Re: Is having your shooting arm in front of your face detrimental to your jump shot?
I'm just gonna give you general advice: don't build a jumpshot from scratch.
Find out the natural aspects of your jumpshot and adapt from there. If you don't take what comes naturally first, you are never going to feel comfortable. There are certain parts of every individual's jump shot that can't be changed. Just don't think about how you're shooting and try to notice natural tendencies that need to be incorporated in your best version of a jumphot.
