    It seems to be more of a "set shot" than a traditional jump shot (unless that's just because his legs are tired).

    But either way, looks pretty smooth.

    He is keeping his weight forward and he is not allowing his core to move backward now, this is a really good thing. Hope he see's the results.

    Release looks great.

    Not sure about the ability to get it off in a game with anyone near. Hopefully just working on mechanics/release/follow through.

    I'm starting to get excited... If DeMar can hit anywhere near 35% from 3, the spacing is going to be a lot better.

    Once again, Demar showing signs that he is stepping his game up to meet the demands of the team. He is a rare specimen that has loyalty and wants to win!

    Definitely someone that a Toronto fan should respect.

    Just what would the right circumstance be though? What should your ideal second option on offense be able to do which DeMar is capable of? In my mind going into the post as the second option on offense would be ideal. It's a higher percentage area to score from and would create the balance you spoke of. It's one thing if you have elite type scorers like Durrant/Westbrook or LBJ/Wade scoring and allowing the bigs to clean up, but if your first and second options on offense have yet to sniff and All Star game wouldn't there be more balance with spreading the offense inside and out? Also would make Novak more useful. Thoughts?
    I think it would be a team with good shooters (for their positions) all around him. And that team would also lack a secondary shot creator because most of its roster are catch and shoot players and pick and roll finishers.
    I think Atlanta would be a good fit for him, for example. Especially if Lou Williams doesn't come back to his pre injury form.

    Not to trying to be negative, but I don't think everyone should get their hopes too high because of an IG video.

    It was only 5 shots in a row. Hell, I can make 5 in a row any day and I'm not that great a shooter.

    Hope I'm wrong though. Stating the obvious but him being a three-point threat is deadly.

    I love when people on this forum talk like they're as good as someone in the NBA.

    No one here can drain 5 in a row from 23+ feet out.

    Clearly you're talking to me so I'll engage. Btw I never implied that I'm anywhere near NBA talent.

    Alright folks, If you can make five NBA distance three pointers please film it and post it here.
    Isaac believes in you.

    I'm with Isaac on this one. 5 in a row when you are hot is not that much of a big deal.

    I can...and I have. Not very often, but I've done it.

    Now put me in a game with a hand in my face and I'll be lucky to hit 1 out of 5

    Yep, making some uncontested, in rhythm practice shots in a row doesn't mean the player is a good in-game shooter.
    It's better than not making shots in practice, at least there's hope. But if you played basketball a lot as a kid, or if you had a strong HS basketball program, you probably have seen a few really good practice shooters.

    Btw, all you have to do is watch pre-draft workouts. They are always full of people who can shoot incredibly well against chair defense. For example, look at this Colton Iverson video:

    Start at 1:10 for a sequence of 3s, or just watch the entire video, he takes a lot of 3s and long 2s. It's like watching the next Dirk Nowitzki. But this is a workout; the game is different. You don't know if and when you'll get to shoot in game, you'll have people flying at you trying to contest those shots, and there's more pressure too. Colton Iverson is someone who has never taken a 3pt shot in his 4 year college career and only took 9 mid range shots last season. He's an under-60% free throw shooter too.

    Well, what exactly are you trying to do? Nobody's going all gaga over the video, only saying the video shows him working at his 3 pt shooting, and that his stroke looks better/smoother. WTF man? Would you prefer to re-live one of the many bitch sessions of how poor a 3 pt shooter he is, and will always be?
