Generally speaking, the highest percentage shots are the ones closest to the basket while not being opposed by a defender close by. The dunk is almost a sure thing, while layups are missed periodically. Dunks have a higher percentage in shot making.

Dunking is the highest percentage shot in the NBA if you are unopposed to the basket, and if you can jump high enough to cleanly throw the ball into the hoop.
