Default traditional 2 finger release or 1 finger?

Last week Blader made a post about Kobe's release- 1 finger/feathery/1 down 3 fingers up....

What release to you have- traditional 2 finger or 1 finger?

I use a traditional 2. how about you guys?

I think naturally, I shoot the basketball with a 1 finger release because my hand naturally tilts that way on some shots. If you don't know what I mean, I'm a right handed shooter and on some releases my hand is tilted kinda like \ instead of /. So what ends up happening is my pinky is the lowest finger down and my index finger is the highest finger up. This happens mostly on closer shots, but sometimes happens on longer ranged shots.

However, through years of practice, most of my shots have a more traditional release.

Couple of ways from what I've heard. you push the ball away w/ only ur index finger, so when u finish- 1 finger down 3 left up. or twist your fingers away from you kinda.

At the end of my release my index finger is touching my thumb and my other fingers and slightly above it.
