note that the i picked the worst jump shot list off the basic shot form model. picking NOAH and MARION was too obvious

best jumpers to me:

1) Melo for a regular jumpshot
2) Kobe but slightly better looking fade than Melo and pull up jumpers IMO
3) Kevin Durant
4) Nowitzki


the ugliest to me are

1) Ray Allen cause it looks way too stiff. Ive seen him try to adjust his shot and it looks terrible. still wouldnt mind carbon-copying his jumpshot if i could drain it like him
2) Derek Fisher
3) Kevin Martin

Ennis Kanter. By a LONG shot

Edit: Most aesthetic shot of all time to me is VC. Just something about it seemed so smooth

This thread is cringe-worthy. Ray Allen has the GOAT shooting form.

imagine him leaning in or out or even sideways to try and get a buzzer beater off or hit a mid ranger. it would look nasty

disrespecting ray Allen?

It does look ugly. His elbow etc isn't lined up, its at an angle. Not sure how he's so good of a shooter with the ugly shot he has.

ugly as f

a lot of players do have an angle with their elbow but not to the degree of ray's. from the side that shot just looks ugly tho even more than the front lol

Yeah that shot isn't flattering since its from the side as you say. Durants looks better to me, but he also has that elbow issue but not as bad.

Many shooters (I do it) fix it by rotating their whole body to the side. During my jump shot (and foul shot), my body is at a 45+ degree angle. When everything's lined up, my shot feels 10x better. I'm guessing Ray and others have just shot so many shots in their career that it doesn't really matter what he does, as long as its consistent. I play only 1x a week in the winter and have to rely on my mechanics being right vs volume shooting practice like the pros get.

I think it's because Ray doesn't really sweep and sway, so it looks like he's just going straight up then down.

Shooting isn't just about elbow placement. Ray Allen's follow-through and tricep extension is a thing of beauty.

Kobe and Melo and JJ Reddick are far and above the most aesthetically pleasing jumpers in the league.

As far as worst jumpers there are too many bad ones to have a consensus worst. Mind equals blown at making it to the big leagues and never putting work into such a huge aspect of your game

lmao wrong. ray allen is a average jump shooter at best. he is actually a goat shooter. learn the difference please. Thats why op put melo in his list. Melo is one of few players in the nba that has a jumpshot...

He does sweep and sway, just barely though.
