    I actually really like lowrys jumper. All legs and great extension on the release, 40% from 3 pt range. We need him to look for his shot early. This is turning into a jump shot thread lol
    Yeah...

    Oh, uhm, it's one game, but Ross was impressive tonight. Man, he's proving me wrong a bit here. I hope he can keep going.

    Calm down guys, we all know Landry's form is the smoothest on the team.

    They should play a Rick Ross track every time Ross hits a jumper

    I was going to start a petition for him to change his name to Terrence Rozayy if he won the dunk contest...but that never hit high.

    Terrence Ross was solid in garbage time last night.

    Anyone notice that Austin River's FT% is absolutely trash? He shoots 54.6% from the charity strike. That's almost as bad as Shaq's FT% when he was playing (52.7%).

    I find it weird as well. Players who shoot well from outside tend to have good free throw percentages as well.

    Ross is a better ball handler then he gets credit for, he can create off the bounce pretty good. Again, not enough minutes to truely show his game. Rivers is getting more minutes than Ross and he isn't playing that great so that worries me
    With good ball movement on offense, you only need 1-2 dribbles to create off the bounce.

    Ross is more than quick and explosive enough to have good things happen but the ball needs to get moving and open some lanes first.

    ISO offense is not going to play to Ross' strengths.

    At this point now, my head has made it's decision. I don't want either Rivers, or Ross.

    Well, I wouldn't say I wouldn't want Ross until 1-2 years down the road and he's absolutely a bust.
