    Now that's a release. Left hand not involved in the propulsion, only guiding the ball for a period of time.

    That's why reddick is shooting .293 this year to Stuckey's .234!

    MJ's got his left off the ball. Looking good. He's clearly right-eyed, so that helps.

    From the picture you posted, Stuckey's guide hand looks the same as MJ's. I'm not sure what you are seeing.

    Jordan's left hand is off the ball and it could stay frozen like that for the remainder of the shot. Stuckey seems to actually be releasing the ball with both hands at almost the same time. That's why his left hand's fingers end up pointing at the hoop instead of straight up and his left arm is straight, instead of bent at the elbow.

    There are some unbelievable NBA shooters that have strange releases, so it's not like there aren't other guys that do this. But, when the results aren't there, it's not a bad idea to think about form.

    I've always been amazed at how little rotation some of the good 3-point shooters have on their shots. Like 2 rotations or so. Not sure perfect form would produce that, but it works.
