Who ya got?
The only bad thing about summer is that the NBA is on vacation. Well at least it got me watching some highlights of players and luckily came across Brandon Roy. Was my "next" favorite player until he got injured, so sad.
Anyway, his shot is by far the the best looking shot IMO a.k.a 'the sexiest shot'. Just love how smooth it was, how his body was straight as a ruler and I could just watch him shoot all day.
So, what shot do you like most? Who ya got?
Now and all time
P.S whoever wants to get reminded a bit of what could have become a hall of famer:
I would have to go with the Haslem Hitch or possibly the Drummond free throw as the most interesting shots in the game.
man this video makes me sad, I loved Roy's game and didn't get to see enough of him.. By now he would be the third best player in the league IMO..
Anyway, this is a tribute to two of my favorite players.. enjoy
My favorite players in terms of shooting mechanics, i.e., players I could watch shoot all day:
My list was of players whose mechanics I personally like and enjoy watching shoot. I know Larry Bird, Ray Allen, Reggie Miller, etc., are among the greatest shooters ever, but their technique isn't my favorite, and that's what the thread was asking.
Steve Nash's shot is beautiful, the arc and how it kisses the net. It's really quick too.
Ray Allen has got to be in the Top 5 ever. Someone said it above and I was thinking the same with Dell Curry.
Well, that Brandon Roy video was legitimately depressing.
So many players in this generation being robbed of their careers through circumstance or injury.
Roy, Oden, Eric Gordon is on that path... yup, now I'm sad.
I love Vince Carter's shot, especially his off-balance shots/fadeaways which he makes look really cool and sweet. Also like Allan Houston's.
