Default Re: FINISHING AT THE RIM using Athletic ability

It's not comfortable at first, but if you watch Carmelo, that's what he does and gets fouled basically every time he goes up and can finish the 3 point play about a quarter of the time.

If he bumped his weight up to 185, @ 5'10 he will have minimal athletic ability

I'm 6' 170 and that ball is going up when I get to the rim unless you put me on my back
