Hold on tight. Nothing is impossible.
He needs to learn to catch it at chest level and keep it from dipping so low before going back up.
Not necessarily. There a lot of great shooters that dip the ball real low to get their rhythm. The one that jumps to mind is Dame. He doesn't do it on every shot and I don't think he does it in stationary practice but when Dame is on the move and he is lining up a bomb he dips the ball pretty low sometimes. His dip is much faster but you can see it on the shot that banished Pandemic P to the negative zone. When he hops to his right, the ball is below his waist. Obviously Lonzo =/= Dame but it isn't a completely concerning development.
I can remember this off the top of my head, it probably has nothing to do with the fact that all we have done for the last 7 years is watch second by second youtube clips of players shooting form because the team we follow keeps drafting players unable to perform the most fundamental aspect of the game of basketball...
