one year passes...

saw some thing a while ago talking about how dell made steph radically change his shot to a higher release point while he was in high school because he wouldnt be able to get it off in the pros steph called it his summer of hell, got a lil chuckle out of that watching lamelo and trae shoot from their chins

biyombo is a non-baller

the weirdest ft shooter I remember seeing was Shawn Marion, wouldn’t he kind of shove the ball with both hands semi-horizontally at the backboard?

brimstead, Saturday, 27 February 2021 17:59 (seven months ago) link

pretty much describes his jumpshot altogether lol

lag∞n, Saturday, 27 February 2021 18:39 (seven months ago) link

huh, his release point looks like it's close to his shoulders!

pretty funny that rick barry, one of the greatest shooters ever, shot free throws underhand

lag∞n, Saturday, 27 February 2021 22:48 (seven months ago) link

with some of those you have to feel for the teammates who had to dap them up at the line, like "um... good job?"
i've always be been a fan of nelly's weird one handed thing

iirc Rick Barry was and remains outspoken about the underhand free throw. I know I heard an interview once about how he got Wilt to do it for a game or part of a season or something and he was able to make a much higher percentage, but wilt wouldn’t stick with it bc it didn’t look cool.

It’s pretty amazing how many dudes in that video actually had dece percentages. More than one way to skin a cat!

i remember that barry/wilt anecdote too, from basketball gypsy

In his autobiography Chamberlain said using the "granny" shot made him "look silly" and "like a sissy."


To paraphrase the great Free to Be You and Me, a sissy is somebody who doesn’t use the granny shot because he’s afraid somebody will call him a sissy if he does use the granny shot

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Sunday, 28 February 2021 21:08 (seven months ago) link

i didn't realize until recently that elena delle donne is a significantly better ft shooter than any nba player. her holding the ball out with her elbow at a 90 degree angle seems notable, but her shot looks pretty conventional.

the smaller ball would help with shooting % imo

micah, Sunday, 28 February 2021 22:32 (seven months ago) link

so silly they shd use the same ball

lag∞n, Monday, 1 March 2021 00:29 (seven months ago) link

micah, Monday, 1 March 2021 02:21 (seven months ago) link

cause its the same sport

marcus would be an amazing player development coach someday. he talks the game really well.

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 8 September 2021 00:17 (one month ago) link

such obvious passion too

lag∞n, Wednesday, 8 September 2021 00:19 (one month ago) link

yeah i could see him really wanting to do a job like that

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 8 September 2021 00:19 (one month ago) link

three weeks pass...

never been clear to me who the guys are who help the players do drills, are they on the development staff or what they tend to be young theyre not coaches theyre not ball boys
