Just want to point out that they obviously aren't using an NBA three point line, so make sure you keep that in mind before you get too excited by watching some of these makes.

You have a bunch of no-name guys in the runs playing hard, aggressive dribble penetration, and strong finishing, and he just take a couple of very soft and indecisive dribbles at the top of the three point line and then pulls up.
He still looks like he's learning to play pro basketball. Picking up his dribble and being a bit indecisive.

Guys are not even bothering to play him aggressively. It's like a kid taking driving lessons.

No 3's by Thomas, but one layup. He's definitely Kapono 2.0.

Isn't the blue line the NBA 3 pt line? (there's lots of splace between the top of the key and the outer blue line. The black line sits right atop the top of the key which appears to be the college line). Regardless, it seems FVV was practising his "logo" 3's.

FVV don't even need shorts to school these fools without breaking a sweat.

At least until you showed up with your condescending BS that adds absolutely nothing to any thread you post in.

Champs reloading. TD looking like a way more skilled TRoss. I like the team unity with the shorts.. except for alpha-lowry'esque Fred

The outer blue arc looks like an NCAA line. Fred is obviously shooting with range, nothing we haven't seen before in actual big time NBA games, but guys like Terence and Stan J are just basically out there hitting college threes on weak competition.

Norm is a pretty impressive athlete yet he has bowed legs. One more than the other. This can lead to hip and joint problems eventually for a high performance athlete so I wonder how good his lateral quicks would actually be if he didn't have that kind of structural issue. He looks to be totally unaffected by it. In the playoffs his ability to shoot threes off curls looked like a new part of his game he was getting quite good at.

I think the only benefit to his legs being straight would be his increased height. It's no different than LeBron's duck feet. It is who you are, not a physical limitation. Bow legs, pigeon toes, knock knees, duck feet,...they are more common in sports than many realize, just not easy to.notice as athletes are usually going full tilt across your screen.
That being said, I agree with the curl and shoot comment. He seemed to get better in that role after Gasol came on board. Where and when a shooter received a pass makes a huge difference in the form of the shot.
I expect big things from Norm this coming season. Not star play by any means, but consistent solid production.

Oh yeah - Lebron has the duckiest of feet. Jordan was pigeon toes. Kenny's knees knock so much you think someone is at the door. Two of the fastest 200m runners of all time are Michael Johnson and Usain Bolt and their stride is nothing alike so it does depend on making do with what you have.

Norm looks really, really good next to Gasol. A season starting next to him should really improve his numbers. I am excited for the potential of this year. I think OG will also benefit next to Gasol.

Wish we could see more of Thomas and Davis against these guys, to me that's what's really intriguing... We know what fvv and norm can do
