His jumpshot is flat.  Flat jumpshots never arc higher than the top of the backboard square at its peak.  This was especially evident on the pull up jumper against Landry Fields from 19′.  Jab step.  Pull-up.  Any 3-point attempt after that shot made it especially obvious his legs aren’t under jump under his jumpshots.  He would look more comfortable with a set-shot, just to get more lift and proper follow-through.
