Indiana Pacers swingman Danny Granger is an All-Star, and has made his strides in improving his shooting ability. Here’s what he said Friday at NBA All-Star weekend:
Question: How did you improve on your jump shot? It’s clearly gotten better.
Danny Granger: I had surgery on my shoulder in my junior year and I started altering my jump shots to make them more efficient. And my rookie year I changed them, just to fine‑tune, and it has been helping me.
Question: So you changed it twice in two years?
Danny Granger: Not dramatically. I don’t know if anyone else would be able to really tell other than myself, but I actually did change it.
Question: What did you change the second time?
Danny Granger: A lot of times I was shooting the ball with all my fingertips. Actually, I’m better shooting off my palm I found. I’m much more accurate with it.
