    Not sure how that shot works. Like non. Ever.
    Any competent defender is going to hone in & drop that ball before it reaches shoulders.
    This clip reminds me of seeing the middle schooler walk into a highschool gym. Average wingspan. Can jump. But no college competition? Lol wat

    Not just ugly but how easy is that shot to block or strip, it's so damn low and slow.

    Sorry, that's not an NBA jump shot. Wish him the best but he really needs to professionally upgrade his mechanics, speed, and release point.

    He appears to be a hard worker with elite pedigree so I wouldn't count him out. Looking forward to seeing our new coaching staff further develop this young man.

    I remember even first entering nba his father had looked like a beast w/ big frame, perfectly muscling up, every dunk was nasty.

    Release isn't the issue really. But of greats had awful releases. For me it's the no lift/legs on the shot when you are already undersized. The little guys that stick get great lift on their shots.

    If Ball can make it he'll be fine. I've never seen a shot as ugly as Balls. They will teach him to put the shot up and over instead of out in front.

    Rockets doing someone a favor. Just like when we (Rockets) drafted Zhou Qi and probably Vincent Edwards.

    You guys focused on the release and lift of his shot and not how easy KMJ is getting his shot to the rim. There is no struggle at all. With someone of his athleticism, you usually see them jump really high and then shoot like Russ Westbrook who has ZERO control. The bones of his shot look good to me and can be perfected IMO.

    Look at how James Harden and Curry shoot. They barely get off the ground.

    You armchair shooting coaches should give him the benefit of the doubt.

    Kevin Martin and even our own Eric Gordon have weird shot forms.

    If players like those 2 and Shawn Marion can find some way to make it work, KMJ will make his work too.

    lol his shot is nowhere near the funk level of a Marion or Kevin Martin. The guy is looking down at the rim throwing in dunks, I think he's probably not trying to maximize "lift" on his shot eh? His feet are set and the arc is good, not flat. And uh, it's going in? He's 19. Please, please let him develop.
