The shooting motion is about as discretionary as it gets.
Proof: Don't forget about the pump fake - and don't get fooled (or should you) into a player "in the act" of shooting.

For me the most import components of "in the act" means
1) reasonably positioned towards the basket,
2) ball under control by player,
3) head up or coming up,
4) eyes searching for the goal.

Seems to work in this potentially tough call
