Default Quickdraw Kapono

Here's a clip from a GS game last year where Kapono, like last night, completely redefines the term "catch and shoot"..catchshoot..or something like that

Yeah, if we see a couple more performances like last night's one from Kapono, I might be eating some crow very soon. The key from Kapono that seperates him from our other shooters is that he's always planted and squared to the hoop ready for a quick release shot. But kudos to Jose and co. for also placing passes towards his upper torso which allows Kapono to even get the shot off that much faster.

I still think the 6 million per year was kind of steep, but if we see more of these performances from him then it'll ease the financial blow.

That two handed shot thing was hilarious. I knew a guy in school who used to shoot like that...but every time...and he didn't hit anything but fans and people walking along the baseline.

I like the signing and i don't mind his price... what i dont' like is how little he's been used so far. The guy needs 12 shots per game... minimum. He's just too good and quick enough to get open...it's frustrating.
