The 19 Foot Jump Shot

One thing you never want to do as a player is take a bad shot. One very common bad shot is a 19 foot jump shot. If you are that far away from the basket, why not step back one more foot and be awarded 3 points rather than 2, if you make the shot? Another bad shot is any contested shot you put up with time remaining on the shot clock. If there is still time left to work the ball around the offense for an open shot you should opt for that rather than shooting with somebody guarding you.
