What is Correct The ball should be about four feet above the rim One foot above the backboard Practicing shooting for hours can make a person worse not even better Practicing a wrong form can make you use to it and unable to change the wrong form
What to do Make sure you only use one hand in your shot. Dont convert back to your old shot if the new shot feels uncomfortable If you want to practice your shot make sure you are practicing it the right way
Why the amount of arc is Correct If the ball is thrown higher up in the air it has a bigger diameter of the rim and has a bigger chance of falling in. With a flat arc the rim is about 9 inch. In diameter and if there is arc it is 13 inch. In diameter When it is a flat arc it has about 30 degree angle to the basket and the correct arc is 45-55 degree angle.
How to get the proper Arc From the set point when releasing the ball the shooting elbow should elevate. The elbow should at least be above your eye to let you know how high to raise your elbow. In order to get that perfect 45-55 degree angle you should use your legs in the shot to get more power and be able to raise the ball high.
Interview with Connor Fannon 3-point marksman, Connor Fannon interview: Q: Do you prefer arc in your jump shot? Why? A: Yes, not to much though because I think it is more efficient and looks better going in. Q: Has your jump shot always had arc? A: No, when I was little my jump shot was terrible. But I added some arc and now I drain threes Q: So you believe a arced shot is way more accurate than a flat? Why? A: Maybe not as accurate, but it is more effective because in a flat arced shot there is way more of a chance that it will rim out. And if you have arc it has a better chance of going straight in.

A: Yes, because I think that arc is something that you need to make your jump shot consistent. Q: Has your jump shot always had arc? A: No, when I was younger and didnt realize that it was needed my jump shot didnt have much arc. Q: So you believe a arced shot is way more accurate than a flat? Why? A: Yes, I do because like I already said I changed my shot from a flat arc to a higher arc. After I made the change my shot became more accurate and consistent.
