Saw the Knicks-Raptors game last night at the ACC. Better yet, saw Carmelo Anthony rack up 37 points on outside shooting and guarded turnaround fadeaways. The guy just has such smooth mechanism on his jumper. At times it looks as if he is releasing the ball still on his way up rather than at the height of his jump. This makes it more difficult for defenders’ to challenge his shot (timing).
Here is a nice drill between Melo and Magic from a couple of years ago. Love the sound of the ball scraping the rim.
