I thought you were gonna post how you had your own personal experience with it.

But in this case, obligatory E.T. finger comparison

Good Lord. I'm surprised he doesn't shoot free throws like Shaq.

Not sure her hand is a good comparison. Her hand would make a tiny penis look average.

Who's Holly Mackenzie. Her hand looks like that of a five-year old. Leonard's hand doesn't look that warped, not like he has Marfan's or anything.

Look her up on google. Pretty cute for a beat writer.

Actually, I was just thinking that he may have Marfan's. Watch the draftexpress video of him without a shirt; his chest is caved in.

well IMHO a person's hand size correlates to his basketball potential. It doesn't matter how athletic or mobile you are, if you have small hands you won't amount to much on the court (see Kwame Brown).

Having large hands will allow him to palm the ball and help him grab rebs and finish around the basket. Definitely a plus.

A large hand can also be a negative, because it makes it harder too shoot. See Rajon Rondo.

It's similar to an average person trying to shoot with a handball.

Kevin martin has one of the smallest pair hands the rockets have ever seen, but he seems to do fine.

Don't care who she is.. (she looks smoking though)


That is a massive, gigantic, disproportional sized hand.

This isn't really correct, the hand ball is smaller and lighter than a basketball which is why shooting with is quite hard. In Leonard's case only his hands are bigger than average, the rest of his wrist, arms and shoulders are properly sized. So yeah, he'd still need to use two hands to shoot the ball.

P.S. In the event everything I said is wrong, why do you have a problem with Leowad dunk-throwing the ball from 18 feet away like in your pic?

Notice how his handles are always suspect, he looks like he's gonna fumble the ball any minute while he dribbles. Also this might be the reason why KM's a horrible of-the-ball shooter despite having a killer outside shot, he can't catch the ball properly with his small hands.
