Jump shooting drills during fatigue is a major no no because your form wont be consistent. Guys like jordan kobe curry durant always tend to have the same fluid jumpshot no matter how they go into it.
That's a good comment and I think it explains a lot.
Perhaps taking only 50 shots is better than taking 250.
Stories about Dwight and Drummond sinking hundreds of free throws at practice are always out there, and only serve to make their failings harder to grasp.
Either way, I think there is a correlation between turnover prone players and streaky shooters.
If we look at players who are bad shooters but can sometimes sorta 'Flip it on'
1. Lebron James (His jump shot sometimes skyrockets into the high 40% in the playoffs)
2. Russell Westbrook (Kobe Bryant Esque clutch 3s)
3. James Harden (His some sometimes disappears, doesn't it?)
This kinda tells us that for some players, focus is a thing. Some of them, a la Klay Thompson, Kyle Korver and Ray Allen have a shot that feels automatic. But if we look at our Turnover prone superstars, we see that their shot comes and goes.
A good example would be Chris Paul, a famously low-turnover- high assist Pointguard who has a very slick and consistent shot.
What do you guys think? Is Lebron/Others erratic shot tendencies a sign of more focus orientated jumpshooting as opposed to some Elite shooters more mechanic shooting?
