He's dumb. Moses Malone studied his own teammates' jumpshots so that he could tell how they miss.
If anything it's all about intuition, you don't know where the ball is going but some people are in the right place at the right time more often than others and it's all about game-sense... obviously you have to try hard as well but that's a given in everything.
