Ray Allen Jump Shot

How Ray Allen’s Jump Shot works

Ray Allen’s fluid jump shot is the model form for basketball instructors and talking heads to exemplify marksman shooting. He has the coveted 90 degree angle with his elbows and arms on his shot, which he releases at the height of his jump. He also always fully extends his arms for the complete follow through.

This is the jump shot that has helped Ray Ray nail big time 3s in clutch moments. Like the Celtics’ comebacks in the 2008 playoffs. His 50 point performances in the 2009 1st round legendary playoffs against the Bulls. And of course, the clutch shot in Game 6 against the Spurs that inevitably netted Lebron James his second ring.
