Re: Has my jump shot form improved, and any critiques on my new form or dribbling?
Lookin nice man, I like the high arc, follow through and it seems that you are locking your elbow and looks like a one-motion shot. I would suggest having a more open stance (youtube stephen curry draining shots and pay attention to his feet stance). Once you get more used to your shooting form, you'll have a quicker release and will be able to shoot off the dribble.
One thing I would suggest is that once you get accustomed to your shooting form, start running for your rebound after every shot and simulate game like scenarios ie. one dribble pull up (youtube steve nash 20 min drill).
With the hop step that your talkin about - yea it leads to a more quicker shot and is the fundamental of catch and shoot. Doing it off dribble is also good, in fact I prefer it more than the one-dribble pull up but the disadvantage is that its a bit slower.
