NBA 2016-2017 Season Thread - Page 1206

Well my hypothesis is that people who suck at FTs suck at jump shots and that improving ones jumpshot improves ones free throw (although I'm not saying it's the best way to improve ones free throw)

I mean sure you can do a jumpshot as a free throw but can you do it so that you never get a lane violation?

well yea you're right FT is a good indicator of shooting ability, butif you shoot 60% FT you could at least try :P

would be easy because i never land more than say 30cm closer to the rim on midrange jumpshot, so extra 40-50cm would be more than enough and my jumpshot from there is as good as from FT - I guess for a PRO it would be super/very easy to learn and get respectable result

anyway i just youtubed it; it has been done already lol

looks weird, but seems you're right with it being close to lane violation,
but i guess that also depends how you land

Didn't realize that actually happens

At the nba level most shooters get a lot of elevation which means your feet sweep forward quite a bit. Like watching three point shooters they'll often shoot a foot or two behind the line and end up a foot in front. If I was a coach i'd bench a player doing that and potentially risking a lack of a point.

In my mind it's needlessly risky.

well overall the main reason could be that its still easier to shoot a set shot for most men

Suns should get mason plumlee. Two sets of twins and two brothers

It is mark price MKG is working with. His release looks so much better but he's jumping straight up and down. I think his jump shot FGP will improve quite a bit but at most league average

I think I actually prefer the discussion of how much everyone hates Lebron/the Heat over this jumpshot form shit

frown.gif ok.

Been watching the scrimmages and cavs look to be a lot of fun to watch. Kind of excited
post #18088 of 27247
kind of funny that Haywood will be playing with LeBron, he had GOAT LeBron hate moment

They won't be fun for me to watch, that's for sure. I do think they'll be better for a longer time than the previous years' Heat, but Bosh and Wade at the time were better and more experienced than Kyrie and Love are now. This Cavs team is deeper than the Heat ever were, so let's see. Indiana's fall may have given them an easy path through the East, but the West isn't gonna be easy

well if Varejao and Haywood won't be healthy/productive they will have hard time defending vs anyone as Kyrie is not exactly a lockdown defender and Love as a 5 can't really protect the basket
