...So what I'm wondering is if there would be any value in having him put in a lot of work on that long jumper in the offseason, particularly from the wings, and try to give him a more useful skill. Is his solid straight-away shooting evidence that he could be similarly effective from other points on the court? Or they could even totally rebuild his shot to a more efficient motion for pick-and-pop shooting? ...
Interesting question. I tend to be of the opinion that shooting is shooting. If you can make it from 16 feet out, you can make it from 16 feet out. It's a mental thing once you can consistently hit that shot. It would be great to see Amir put in the work form other spots. No reason not to do it. He has hit a three this season, as I recall...Not that I am suggesting ...!
