This reminds me of the Full House episode where Jesse complains to KAJ about someone else standing on his sweet spot.

My is 10 to about 17-18 feet out from the left side. the baseline gets iffy, but from the top of the key on in is good. bottom of hte key is money.

On the court I hope you mean ...

Ummm, I'd have to say I'm money on the mid-range / free-throw line extended area. The three-ball from the arc area on the left side of the court is my area too, which consiquently is actually one of the more difficult and longer shots to take.

in the paint i cant miss unless i throw the ball behind my back - outside the paint it feels the same unless someone is guarding me and i absolutely have no open shot. things start getting harder for me when i get to the 18 - 25 feet range where i have to use a full shot motion. to cure the troubles from long range i usualy try to rainbow the shot so its falling downward into the rim. im about 2 - 5 average from 3 point. sucks butisnt too bad.

ive been practicing fadeaway mid range shots lately.

i like to curl to both elbows. automatic on the catch when i get hot.

love having a triple threat at the top of the key too. the right corner is good to me if my team's got a good pg.

Man dejordan ... that's nice. How often do you see players who know how to play off the ball in pickup? Hell, you can rarely find them even in the League. I love guys like that. Someone who gets gritty and grimey on defense, and someone who knows how to use a pick to spot up. I'll roll with that dude anyday of the week.

Just inside the three I'm ridiculous. Giving me any room to shoot it there is just plain stupid. It's one of few offensive weapons I possess.
