there are things that are consistent with both that you should emulate:

1) wrist stays locked until the follow through

2) L shape in elbow

3) "ten toes to the hole"

4) finishing with elbow above eye level

5) ball never touches their palms

from there just shoot the ball and make sure you are comfortable doing it

in terms of stamina find a friend and do this drill:

makes are 1 misses are minus 2 and you are trying to get to +5. Then try to get to +10. It's alot harder than it looks

then, when that's too easy for you do this drill:

these are really great drills that I have used since HS, I'm very confident with my shooting ability now. I'm 6'2 but I play with a lot of bigger guys so I have the same problems as you getting my shot off.

Solid suggestions, I will try it out.

That's kind of the whole point, it works if I am open but it doesn't if I am being guarded.
