My kid's the same way. Just turned three last week and he's had a stick in his hands since literally before he could walk.

When I watch him shoot, aside from his follow through being super high, he has natural weight transfer, he rolls his wrists, mechanics are smooth, everything is natural.

I had a class in college talking about the "Alexander Technique", which basically is re-learning how to move. Over time, we suffer injuries and laziness and no longer function in a natural way. Like slouching when we sit, or bending over instead of crouching to pick things up, or walking stiff.

A lot of the people in that class made some improvements in pain and performance (it was a music class for some reason) with only changes in posture. It was literally a 1-credit class where we learned posture and did some minor spine alignments.

Anyways, that's what I always think of.
