As I mentioned in another post, I play a lot of pick up at LA Fitness now. I watched a young kid shooting around with his dad and he was launching NBA+ distance 3's and doing the step back 3 point shot like Steph. There are very few people in the world who can shoot like that. It's not great to try to practice it. They also play 2's and 1's so it's worth twice as much and everyone wants to launch 3's. Today I played with one of these young kids. He wasn't a good shooter, but he was tall and could drive a little. We played everything worth 1 point. I told him not to shoot any 2's because a) he wasn't a good shooter and b) it's worth the same as a layup and the % was much lower. He shot 4 or 5 three pointers, missed them all and we lost by 2 points. Another kid the other day kept shooting 3 pointers. I told him to stop. He said "they are leaving me wide open". I said "why do you think that is? because you can't hit the shot." Feels like this is more the rule than the exception. For the most part, coaches won't tolerate this on a higher level, but these kids don't seem to care. I'd rather have players that aren't as gifted physically, but are smart and work hard. Canyon Barry comes to mind. Hopefully we keep getting these types of players.
