How to Shoot a Basketball...

Shoot the Rock like Durant, Curry, Novak, Duncan and Allen

These are 5 types of shooters/scorers that each have their own way of putting the ball in the basket. 

Kevin Durant is a pure scorer, meaning he can shoot from almost anywhere on the court in any manner: catch and shoot, off-the-dribble, in the post, fadeaways, twisting layups, towering dunks, laserlike free throw shooting, you name it. While he has weaknesses in his offense, very few can score and shoot the ball as efficiently as Kevin Durant can.

Steve Novak is a pure catch and shoot player. Besides that, his scoring ability is limited, at best. But when he does catch the ball and he has even an inch of breathing room, it's a safe bet he's going to nail the long shot.

Tim Duncan  - TD is one of the most fundamental scorers and shooters. He use his feet, his hands and his head each possession. His fakes, his use of both hands accurately and his tremendous footwork all are impossible to defend, even as he ages. His backboard shot from the midrange to low-post area is unstoppable and 15 years in the league, he just shot a career high FT percentage. 

Ray Allen - While Ray is a great catch-and-shoot scorer from long range, he also has the ability to put the ball on the floor and drive for a midrange pull up or a layup. His free throw shooting is consistently over 90%. Ray Allen's art is in his shooting stroke, which is one of the most fluid releases from start to finish we have ever seen. That repetition and form is the reason he has the #1 most 3pt FGs made.

..That record won't last, however. 

Steph Curry won't allow it. He already has a huge lead over Ray Allen in their first 4 years in the league. While Ray avg'ed 1.7 3s made per 4.3 attempts (38.8%), Steph Curry averaged 2.5 out of 5.6 (44.6%). Curry has 644 3s made vs Allen's 497, even though Curry's only played in 258 games while Ray played in 295 at the end of their first 4 year marks. (Basketball reference: http://bkref.com/tiny/fRCoZ)

Curry's confidence and stroke are on the up and up and it'll be nearly impossible to guard him in the pick and roll. He just broke Ray Allen's most 3s in a season record with 272 3s. If he stays healthy, he's projected to have a landslide margin between himself and Ray Allen in the next 15 years.
