If you want a very high release point that is difficult to block, the Oscar Robertson release is a go-to for many top players. Many of the lower base animations including Steph Curry, Lamelo Ball, and Kyle Kuzma are very quick and have very smooth pull-ups, so your shot feels more fluid.

It is a good idea to experiment with different lower bases and releases to find a good jumpshot for you. Every player is different, so you may find slight variations to the top jumpshots work better for you. One very important part of developing your own jumpshot is making sure the animation works well for you and you can time each shot for those green lights. After creating your jumpshot, you may want to go to the practice facility or try a few NBA games out before taking it to the Park.
