Pictured here is an extremely handsome bald guy in front of a brick wall showcasing a common mistake shooters make that drastically decreases their range and often ends in shooting a flat ball. The set point being closer to the body allows the shooter's hand to get directly underneath the ball while also giving the shooter vertical/positive power coming up through the base of the body. The hand being directly under the ball is what helps provide sufficient arch and decreases the chances of shooting a flat ball. The elbow is around the 90 degree mark but not over extended as shown on the right. The over extension results in a significant lack of power both from the shooting arm as well as the rest of the body. This slight change can make a pretty substantial difference in being able to both shoot from further away and get your shot off easier. It's hard being this handsome, but shooting a fluid/pretty/game ready jump shot doesn't have to be. Put in the time and the results will show. Keep Shooting.
