Default Re: All Star Weekend - 3 Point Shootout!

Yeah. Dirk has a disadvatage because he has a much longer distance to take the ball from the rack and shoot it because he is so tall.. his shooting style is such that he releases the ball at maximum height.. which is great in a game because it makes him unblockable.. but it maks his shot slower..

Dirk also has a high arcing ball.. whcih also takes longer but according to his trainer who is an engineer this is the optimal arc for shooting three pointers.. it increaes his error allowence.. so he can be less accurate and make more shots.. Players that have a low shooting trajectory are less accurate supposedly. Ray Allen and Kobe have very low shooting trajectories.
