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

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.

Ralph Miller, the coach of the Oregon State Beaver hoops team from 1970-1989 favored a similar heavily pass-oriented offense. I think he cribbed it from Phog Allen. He hated to see his guards dribbling more than twice.
