I'm sure it helps he's not 5'4'', but sometimes a quick release is a quick release, regardless of the athleticism of the defense. Most players, particularly those with NBA-level shooting talent, spend years upon years learning how much space they need between themselves and the defender in order to get up a shot, whether they have a high elevation release or not.

His dad was kind of the same way - grounded, but wonderfully skilled at gauging the space he needed and quick on the release: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMqpGkyO4rk

Sidenote, somehow I never realized before now that Stephen Curry is technically Dell Curry Jr. Both his full name and that of his father is Wardell Stephen Curry. Don't know how I missed that.
