very good point. at 5'11" having a decent jumpshot is a must.
i probably spend the most practice time working on my jumpshot and i'll knock a few down in games, but i need to establish that i'm somewhat of a threat from 15 ft early on to make things easier for myself throughout the game. luckily i've been playing with different people almost every time so my limited repertoire of moves i use to get to the basket have sufficed.
