nothing feels better than elevating over a defender for an easy 3. and when i say elevating, i dont mean you need to jump out of the gym. but just have enough lift with body control to separate you and your defender.
THIS. When i really elevate on my shot and don't just push it with my arms, it's buttery. just let your arms be an extension of your jump and it's water, even if i'm off balance or falling away or to a side if I get decent elevation I can always find that balance at the top, true for almost all shots really, maybe not free throws
