Jumping on a jump shot is overrated. A prime example is Stephon Curry, he is arguably the best shooter in the NBA. At just 6'3, isn't that athlete for an NBA player. He barely gets off the ground for his jump shots, and don't even think he gets off the ground, but he has one of the sweetest fastest releases you can imagine.
