He's supposedly someone with size that can shoot as well. But I think right now he got fat after his injury so he's not in shape, so instead of going down low he's jacking more shots than he should.

By the way, can you imagine if it was Oladipo instead of Bennett? I know the Cavs wanted to trade the pick and failed, but at least pick a sure thing rather than a gamble so you can make a trade later....

No such thing as a "sure thing" in this draft...

White Mamba with the clutch three lol. Man Dwight make your free throws game would've been over, I like how he calls out Lin at the end of the game.

what are the reasons for why some big men are so shitty at the line?

would dwight be better off adjusting his shooting form to include his knees and legs or is that too big a habit change ... cause i really don't see the wrist flick foul shot to work out in the long run

at least shaq stayed around 45 ~ 55% ... dwight was like 5 of 15 ...

No audio just a shot of Dwight yelling at Lin at the end of the game. It looked like he was blaming him for letting Blake get open for the game winner, but on replays Nash had both arms wrapped around Lin. Beverly should've switched onto Blake and Dwight was late to contest the game winner.

because when you're taller and you're looking downwards to the hoop, it's harder to shoot at that angle compared to when you're shorter with the upwards arc. i probably didn't explain that very well...

While an exception, Yao Ming was like 7'6 and he shot 83.3% for his career at the free throw line. Dwight's 6'9 and he shoots worse than Shaq did. I think it has to do something with how a player is taught at a young age. Euro bigs generally tend to be terrific ft shooters in comparison to their american counterparts. And they have the same height, size of hands etc. Add in the mental aspect of it.

^there's always exceptions but generally bigs don't shoot very well at the ft line, wilt chamberlain was a career 51% ft, manute bol haha was 56%, i forgot who it was, maybe reggie miller, but he gave the same explanation i did and it makes sense, to me anyways. the tall players that are good ft shooters are generally good mid range shooters too, like pau gasol, dirk, yao ming. you're probably right too that euro bigs are taught to shoot more than american bigs. shaq, dwight, etc are more back to the basket bigs where they utilize jump hooks, dunks, and floaters so they really don't have a 'jump shot' so once they get to the free throw line...they don't have that natural jump shot arm movement.

btw, on youtube somehow posted a video of dwight and lin talking at the end of the game lol.

Dwight's career is actually 45-55%.

I find it's funny he's blaming other people already. Until he's gotten that ring, none of the shits he say will mean squat. He should just shut up and focus on his game.

I registered and it was supposed to be activated within 24 hours...It didn't, so I called Shaw after 24 hours and they made it work.

so uhhh who's gonna be watching Kansas play tonight ? Wiggins first game as a Jayhawk.... it should be on TSN btw, they said they would be broadcasting every Kansas game this season

Harden's nightly defensive routine..... Kevin Durant really needs to STFU when telling Wade to give up the SG title to Harden, basketball is played on both ends of the court and we know what Wade does on defense

Wade is on a mission to make KD respect him again like he posted on instagram. I'm not a big fan of Wade but he sure looked like he turned back the clock last night against the Clippers.

And the shot that Chalmers gave to Blake Griffin is not cool IMO. Chalmers saw the pick coming, jumped and leaned with his elbow and took a shot at BG in the throat. Chalmers even tried to act innocent and complained to the refs and the chirping gesture he did after he talked to the refs was such an d-bag move. BG should've threw him into the seats like what P.J Brown did to Charlie Ward

Kobe gets ripped for being a terrible defender late into his career, which I don't get it's expected as you get older you get slower. Harden is 24 and plays defence like he's 44. That's what separates Lebron from everyone else currently, he's elite on both ends of the court.

TSN showing every Kansas game this season

Maybe in their last year, teams will pick them up as expiring contracts to clear cap space.
