    That jump shot Clint Capela is the cringiest hitch shot, similar to Charles Barkley hitch in his golf swing.

    His shot isn’t that sexy but if he worked on it to be at least a little consistent, he could be way more of a threat.

    People are exaggerating. He's a year of practice away from hitting over 33% from 3 on a small amount of shots (thinking 1.5 per game). At least on open shots, which is the only time we would want him taking them anyway.

    He doesn't have to be incredible at making them, but the threat of him hitting some open ones dramatically changes Capela's ability to deal with the only kind of defense that has been a problem for his PnR game: an excellent defender guarding Capela while also being able to disrupt Hardens drives and recovering.

    If Capela can hit 1-2 open threes, Draymond Green's ability to disrupt our best play disappears into thin air.

    It's worth trying. He's pretty bad right now. But he could be worth significantly more than his contract when he develops that ability, and that's good news for us.

    Maybe but he has to stick to his bread and butter, losing himself in attempting 3s ain't going to work.

    Shouldn't learn shooting 3s from Westbrook.

    It might be too late, should have begun when he was 20 or 21 with the midrange.

    Some of the lesser Euro teams are like lesser G league teams....he can shoot all day though with his slow release.

    Capela is a year of practice from shooting 15% from 3. One of the worst jumpers in the NBA.

    Note: FIBA corrected the video stream’s start time to 18:30 GMT+1 = 12:30 Houston.

    Yesterday, it was showing 19:00, which disagreed with the image in OP.

    Okay, I'll adjust my life again. I'll probably forget about the game by the time it starts. AKA par for the course.

    fwiw: the error FIBA listed as start time was 30 minutes later, not earlier. The video placeholder listed 19:00 GMT+1, instead of 18:30.

    That was worthless is what it was. I'm more confused than ever. The misdirect. The image. The correction parlaying blame on FIBA. FIBA does everything right.. just ask Matthew Bullard.

    I have a silly conspiracy theory.... I think he is doing this to absolutely crash his trade value..... It just might work, cause that jumper is str8 up garbage.
