I dont care what level of ball u playing whether its street, pro, collegiate, minor or highschool ..that mid range J is always killer if u can consistentely knock it down....

my long ball is streaky and If I dont play ball in a while my handles are questionable but that midrange has never left me since I got it down when I was like 17....all of the best perimeter scorers have a mid-range...its more reliable and needed than damn near any other skill set on offense

    Its what separates the great players from the average ones also one of the reason why many players are still in the league even with no athleticism.

    word to rip and ray allen

    any player can develop it from the pg to the center (doesnt matter if ur 5'3 or 7'4) and be a problem...I dont understand why most players dont seem to care to develop it though

    This.

    For the life of me I can't understand why a tall lanky 7-foot center who isn't very good wouldn't develop a hook shot.

    Its the perfect shot. If you're 7 feet tall its absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to stop a hook shot. Even a 7-footer on defense can't stop a 7-footer's hook shot.

    I can understand why guards and forwards don't develop a hook shot, it doesn't really work against centers. But if your 7-feet tall nobody can stop it. Even if you otherwise suck and aren't good at defense, a deadly hook shot is something every 7-footer should have in his arsenal.

    leonard, melo, derozen, cp, paul george, kyrie, mccollum, thompson, durant, hayward after learning from kobe... who else? i know i'm missing a few that dont stand out. I can't think of no more than 15 that shoot well with the midrange and 3 ball. Use to easily name 30.

    well then school me instead of being passive. i really had a hard time thinking about more than 15. i seriously think there were better and more efficient shooters then than there is now. the only difference to me is the attempts
