Exactly.the wall sits are an isometric exercise that targets the quads.u have to have strong quads to be able to lift your body off the ground.jump rope strengthens the calves which helps in jumping but more so the landing after the jump.jump rope strengthens the ankles and calves and also is great for cardio and stamina needed for basketball.but trust me wall sits do wonders and are a very underated exercise for building strength in the quads
