Default What does your shot look like?

Do you shoot like Gannon Baker? (If you don't know how he shoots, watch the first few seconds of this clip.)

Do you shoot like Ray Allen? (shoot with all 5 fingers)


Like Kobe?


Like Derek Fisher?


Like Nowitzki?


Or are you a one eyed shooter, like this?

EDIT: Also, do you hold your form until the ball hits the rim, or do you put your hands down right after you release?

Cool Re: What does your shot look like?

My jump-shot is like a mix Between Dirk's and Kobe's, except my release is kind of choppy.

I'm a lefty and I think the closest comparison to my form is Chris Mullin...

I try my best to shoot like Kobe, but at the end of the game I have trouble getting the ball off of my index finger.

Default Re: What does your shot look like?

I try to keep my index finger behind the ball when I raise it up. Then on my release, I think about having my index finger pointed right at the middle of the rim.

Dirk Nowitzki with a quicker release.

Btw speaking of ganon baker....he has amazing dribbling skills...but that shot looks funny

my fade-away and pull-up jumpers are pretty much identical to Kobe's. I just studied em over and over and over again.

i am a lefty and i basically shoot like Rip Hamilton,i guess.
