Default Your spot

Where is the spot on the floor where you do the most damage? Where the defender doesnt have a chance?

For me, its on the midrange on the right side of the floor.

I pull up on em', post up and turn around, drive to the rack(and reverse), do the duncan turnaround hook shot of the glass, pull up bankshot, and the fadeaway to the right.

Default Re: Your spot

After all these years, I'm still money from either baseline. I find it much easier to shoot without the view of the backboard in my way. I used to make a living there, even with hands in my face, defenders running at me. I swear I was like a 60% shooter on the baselines, and like a 40% every where else.

Default Re: Your spot

Either the left wing, right wing, or top of the key. It's not necessarily where I am on the floor that determines whether or not I make my baskets. I'm always either red hot, or ice cold, kind of like John Starks.

Default Re: Your spot

Post... either block. There are so many moves I can do... so many combos. Plus, almost nobody knows how to play defense down there. Typically when I am on the left block (back to the basket POV) they over play to my left and I can just get in the lane easy and have a great shot at the basket. If I am on the right block, they overplay to my right trying to stop me from getting into the lane with my dominant hand and then I just drop step for an easy bucket... Then I can do the drop step and pump... or a fade away... or whatever.

Obviously it's going to depend on on who is guarding me though. If a guy is 3 inches taller then me then I might just try to get open for 3 or pick and pop... but just because someone is taller doesn't mean they know how to play post D. If he is about my height though I am definitely going to try and post every time. Hey it's not as sexy as a mid range jumper or slashing to the basket... but it's effective and can be damn pretty when executed right.

I'm actually pretty comfertable from any where on the court out to the 3pt. line. It all feels the same to me.

Default Re: Your spot

28 footers on the left elbow. Thats my heat spot, I rarely miss from there and also straight away from 28 ft. You guys can even ask Lamar Doom, UCLAlegend32, and lilojmayo, im pretty much money from 28 ft and in

Either baseline (mid-range) and either side of the free throw line. I don't have three-point range, but I'm pretty killer from within the arc.

Depends on how big the guy is that's guarding me. In most cases, I do my best in the low post. If the guy is excessively bigger than me though, mid-range is where I do best.

Default Re: Your spot

Half court.

No im just kidding. Right now its probably either elbow. But in middle school i was pretty good on the baseline. It was really weird though cause i was almost automatic if i caught the ball and shot without really thinking about it, but if i dribbled or waited a sec i would suck.

The plain unrealistic nature of this post has me in shreds.
