Default DeMar shooting 300 Three's before practice

DD has always been a hard worker and professional .. while he has made progress over the years on certain aspects of his skill-set, his poor defense and lack of 3 point shooting ability have been consistent themes.

Assuming I heard this correctly, he stated that he shot 300 Threes before practice and has been working this all summer ...

Do you think this will translate into being a good 3 point shooter (>40%) this season?

I think he said he made 300 threes, so he shot more than that. Dont think he will ever be good, but i would be happy if he shoots good enough to keep defense honest

Agree ... I should of stated that he made 300 Threes. I heard the same thing. Certainly hope he didn't take 1000 shots ..

He certainly seemed confident that his 3 point shooting will be significantly better this year ... Confidence is a critical element to getting there.

Good 3pt shooter is .35 or .36 or greater. Above .40 is a great 3 pt shooter

Dwight shot around 75% on FTs in practice with the lakers last year. I'll believe it when I see it.

True story Bro.

When I was 16, I lost a game of 21 against a guy I should beat every time. I decided I wasnt going to bed until I sank 15 free throws in a row. It took me until 4 am (from about 10 pm). From that night on, I could make free throws and shoot a LOT better than ever before.

My point is, that DD will develope a great "muscle memory" if he keeps it up. Here's hoping he does.

imo with that shooting form, hes not gonna be a "great" 3 pt shooter. But will hit if needed to. unless hes revamped it over the summer.

Less is more. More or less. But mostly less. Or should that be more?

He was making long twos with no problem. He's extended his range from year to year. The main thing is that he puts it all together. I really liked Casey putting an emphasis on balancing the jumpers with a lot of shots in the paint.

I would be happy if he improved his D. From getting to the line, and shooting 45% from the field, he has made valuable contributions on the offensive side of the ball. He has to keep his man in front of him, and rebound the ball better.
