If you look closely you can see LeBron traveled.

9 years in the league and NOW he's working on it?

Nevertheless, better late than never!

Hope he masters it and actually uses it semi often at least. I'm actually somewhat exited to see the hook shot come back...

do any of you guys think he could start a trend of younger lebron fans to start learning it since he is?

Excellent observation.

Below are some videos of coaches teaching and demonstrating the Mikan drill with some of their players. It's also designed to teach footwork and ambidexterity.

This is exactly why I want him to master it and use it often. If he hits some game winners with that shot, all the better.

These are basic hook shots I practice every time I ball. I like to use the glass from the sides though. I'm pretty sure every NBA player does this drill.

He plays in a face-up league, where he's played PG for most of his career. He started making a concerted effort last season to get to the post, so developing a hook makes sense. As good as LeBron already is, it's actually scary to think how good he could be if learns to play off-the-ball, and dominate from the post.




Also, post play / hook shots aren't really the bread and butter in this league anymore. With the new rules, it's about beating your man off the dribble, getting to the hoop, and getting fouled. You're not going to get to the FT line throwing up hooks from the post all game, so you better be hitting them at a high clip.
