    Complicated? I make the team I coach do similar drills. They're 14-18.

    I think the drills are more complicated if you are as tall as Johnson is.

    Its nice to know that he is working on his handles

    It will help him to be able to create his own shot.

    That is the point of this.

    Its not comparing him to CP3 or some PG in high school

    He is trying to improve his handles so that he can create off the dribble.

    He may or may not succeed but at least he is trying.

    We shall see come 10-11 if these drills had any positive effect on Johnson's ability to create his own shot and to take his man better off of the dribble.

    Totally agree Buddahfan. A great sign to see him practice on his handles throughout the summer. Hopefully he's working on his mid range jumper as well.

    I'm such a fan of Amir. Yes, those drills are incredibly difficult especially if you're a non-point guard and tend to favour one hand over the other like most human beings. I just wish DeMar was also working on his handles. Besides the working out, I want Amir to have massive chip on his shoulders due to the negative criticism he's been getting from the press about his contract. Knowing these players these days, THEY READ EVERYTHING. I really don't hear anyone bitching about Drew Gooden's contract.
