Hey, I am an engineering student and am working on a project at my high school, My project is to create a patent for an idea of an invention and I was wondering if I can ask you a few quick questions about basketball jumpshots response. It would be very helpful toward my project.
> 1. The great shooters such as Steph Curry, Ray Allen and Larry Bird all have different jumpshots, despite them all producing the same result. Would you say there is a perfect jumpshot?
> 2. What would you say there is a #1 error in a players jumpshot?
> 3. Is there any tips you could give on improving a jumpshot?

The great shooters all execute the proper fundamentals. If the proper fundamentals are executed each time, that allows room for a player's individual nuance/finesse on a shot. Not sure I would pick one shooter and say their shot is the perfect jump shot.

Not bending the knees and using enough leg in the shot.

Be consistent with your shot fundamentals every time, bend those knees and hold your follow thru.

Hello,
I'm doing my project on the potential and kinetic energy in basketball + I have a task to analyze how a parabolic arc is formed, when a player is making a jumpshot. Do you have any resources that could explain the process? Perhaps, there's something about tall players and the distance to the basket too, cause I really need to write my essay on this topic and support my arguments with these measurements.
