Enes Kanter embracing the hook shotPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Salt Lake Tribune reporting on Jazz center Enes Kanter:
It’s a shot Jazz center Enes Kanter has in his repertoire — and one his coach would like to see more of.
“When he feels the guy, feels the guy and it’s that running hook across the lane with his rhythm, I think that’s a really good shot for him,” Ty Corbin said. “And actually it gives him an opportunity to get fouled because he’s going across the basket. He’s moving, his guy is moving.”
About 11 percent of Kanter’s attempts this season have been some variation of a hook shot, according to the NBA’s data. He’s hitting on 61 percent of them.
“Kareem in his day perfected the shot,” Corbin said. “It’s very effective. I’ve seen a few of them myself live. You can’t get to it.”
