Default Re: Most important aspect of scoring...

I agree. All I do is practice the mid-range J because I believe in crawling before walking and walking before running. Though I admit, I tend to shoot too many 3's for my own good (1 or 2 a game). The mid-range J opens everything up. When you are actually making that shot, scoring becomes ten times easier and it also becomes somewhat of a killer crossover because now you have your defender jumping all over the place when your using your hesitation and it allows for easy penetration. On top of all that, if you're a good passer a good mid-range J indirectly leads to assists (make shots>opponent respects fakes>penetrate the paint>dish it out).
