    Preseason stats don't matter, but percentages should. Hoop is still 10 feet off the ground, eighteen inches in diameter, and it's still a game situation. None of that changes.

    That said, 15 shots is not a statistically significant number.

    There is a lot less defensive pressure during the preseason.

    Based on what? Everyone out there still plays hard. If anyone has ever played pickup basketball and organized basketball.. you can't just turn off that "competitive" switch in your brain unless EVERYONE does (see: ASG).

    he actually might get playin time this year
    especially with Spo trying to keep the big 3 healthy and rested and the older veteran role players more rest

    It was said that theyre going to try to utilize him more
    He can still shoot,and his size length can only help out
    if anything another great shooter to space the floor and lessen the load

    I kind of want to see him break Chalmers record of 10 3s in a game
    James Jones with 30+ points,and player of the game Thatd be interseting to see

    His jumper looks much more fluid than his pre injury jumper, I like it.

    Barely anybody plays hard in preseason barring people trying to make a team or trying to prove something

    Look at for ex the way Bulls,Pacers,Grizz play rs game to teams like
    SA,MIA,LAL
    nowhere near the same

    Teams can and do play harder certain games and situations(playoffs)
    No team is going hard all day every day except the Bulls which is stupid

    Look at the Heat during their 27 game win streak
    they were constantly down at the start of 3rd,4th quarter
    taking plays off,playing lax,not going hard all game
    Cavs-Heat,Heat were down 27 and then still won
    They would play lose,easy and then turn on the pressure
    just look at the way they play rs games compared to playoffs,totally different

    Clearly 15 shots isn't a scientifically significant number, but it is encouraging, and with his changed form, that leads me to believe his shooting has improved. Whether that is true or not, time will tell. You guys are so eager to prove someone wrong or school someone.

    His mid-range was automatic in his second or third year but then it got worse when he tried to incorporate 3-point shooting into his game. Then that kinda went down hill when he started focusing on his FT's.

    Hopefully he will be able to put it all together this year and reclaim the MVP title while being the best player in the league.

    Don't mean to rain on your circle jerks, but he hasn't played a single real game yet

    Travis Outlaw is shooting 54.5% on 3's and 53.6% overall so far this pre-season.

    Rose is other-worldly in comparison to Outlaw, but the stats don't suggest it.

    Maybe a small sample size in pre-season is meaningless?

    The end.

    The OP simply made a statement that Rose's shooting form changed. It obviously is much smoother, less arm more wrist with a softer touch and higher arc which usually does help your shot.

    Then hater nation tried to add some crazy dimensions to it.

    When Rose worked on his floater, and its one of the best in the league if not the best, we saw it in the preseason. A floater is one of the hardest shots to get down.

    As far as pressure it isn't likely to work on a guy that had it all of his life. Since 10th grade on in state wide competitions, the college finals, arguably in the most clutch shots ever made in an NBA series in his rookie year where he was the best player in three wins... we seen his fts, 3point shot and floaters all improve over the years. What he works on usually sticks. But I hear you. Hater nation got to get in there somehow.
