Possible Answer Q1:
The transfer of momentum from dribbling to taking a shot will cause the body to be unstable. Therefore, once finished dribbling, the shooter must stop and transfer the momentum with one step onto their dominant foot before proceeding in the shot.

Possible Answer Q2:
The use of the legs and hips to shoot provides power for the shot. A transfer of power should begin in the lower body (legs and hips), rather than power being forced from the shoulder/arm movement alone. This will give the shooter greater length and height in the shot and will minimise room for error.

Annamieka Mole's insight:

This website will help you to understand the principles of biomechanics before applying them to your own basketball shooting. It breaks down the principles into 4 important categories; stability, maximum effort, linear motion and angular motion.
