As you can see in the photo of NBA player J.J. Reddick, that he has his elbow at a perfect 90 degree angle, or in other words, his elbow is in the shape of an L. Doing this will allow you to have the greatest rate of success when shooting the basketball.
As you can see in this photo, Ray Allen is getting ready to attempt a free throw. Even though it isn’t a jump shot, a free throw has the same principles. If you focus on Ray Allen’s feet you see that they are about shoulder width apart. By doing this, you will achieve your greatest possible balance to be successful in jump shooting.
If you focus on this photo of Rudy Gay, you have to focus on his knees, Rudy slightly bends his knees to allow him to get extra power and arch on his shot, this allows him to get the basketball over the front of the rim.
This a photo after Steve Nash just shot a jump shot. As you can see he is holding his hand up after the shot was released. This is known as the follow through. This is probably the most important part of the jump shot, because the follow through is know as the finishing part of the jump shot. If you don’t follow through then you will miss shots when they feel like they are going to go in.
