Here’s the basic rule on jumping to do a layup or if you have freakish JR Smith ability a dunk on a center: you jump off the opposite leg of that hand you plan on shooting the ball with. In most cases, since most people are right handed, they will jump off their left leg and score with their right. When you can fly like JR Smith fundamental rules fly out the window.
An example of this happened last night when he jumped off his right foot, went up in the air with two hands and then dunked with his right hand.
