Gordon's release is much softer than in the past, in my opinion.

Didn't notice the shooting, seems normal.

But he is actually money when he gets his two feet set.

His shooting form seems to change game to game or shot to shot. Needs to find consistency in his shooting form.

His shooting is kinda going into a Klay-esque form, his release is more quicker and he doest jump that high like in the past , saving his energy.

Better feel. Nice to see.

Nice video, but I don't know, his shot still doesn't look fluid to me. So when it's game time and there's so much going on will it be consistent or will he still be a streaky type shooter.

The difference is when he releases the ball during his jump. he seems to be releasing the ball just slightly beore the peak of his jump whereas in the past he would release the ball slightly after the peak, flattening his shot arc. If he makes the change and stay consistent we could see improvement but we all know its hard to change habits.

and after weight gain, muscle gain, fat loss and investing time in instagram stories ,we are now back at overanalyzing summer shootarounds.

5 more days until World Cup. At least something to watch.

For those of you thinking Fournier is over-paid, Caris LeVert just got a contract on the same money line.

Fournier was better when both players were 24 years old:

Last year, Fournier was much more efficient (and better):

If Brooklyn is hoping for "upside", well Orlando should in turn hold on to the better Fournier.

That shot at 4:05 from AG in the corner was nice.

No one gonna make a thread or updates on the FIBA scene here? Seeing as we hvae Vuc, Evan, Khem and who else playing? You know, updates on how they are doing international-wise. I was shocked to see that Khem is the starting C for Canada.

In light of some recent discussions we've been having about the mid range and post ups, here is Erik Spoelstra (whom I personally think is one of the better coaches in the NBA) talking about it:

Of note is that Clifford, like Spoelstra, comes from the Pat Riley > Stan/Jeff VanGundy coaching family tree.

2-3 win improvement seems very doable.
