== == == == A jump shot is just a shot that isn't a layup, dunk, or floater. Basically a shot at least 10ft away and requires you to jump and release with a stroke.

when a person playing basketball elevates (jumps) before taking a shot<< this can sometimes improve accuracy and decrease distance from the basket. == == when a person playing basketball elevates (jumps) before taking a shot<< this can sometimes improve accuracy and decrease distance from the basket.

It depends on where you are when you shoot it. If your feet are behind the three point line, then the jump shot is worth 3 points if your feet are on or in front of the three point line then the jump shot is worth 2 points.

Of course you can jump during a free throw but most players do not jump to have a consistency on their shot.

lay ups:when you're running towards the basket, you lay it up jump shot:when you are further out (eg. outside the 3 point line) you perform a jump shot to get it further because a jump shot is more powerful than a standard set shot set shot:when you shoot the ball while both feet are planted on the floor. you would do this for a shot that is close range
