This kid has STAR written all over him. Never forget 28 points outburst against Atlanta Hawks. C's nearly beat Hawks team without Big4 and Pietrus.

NBA players rarely miss wide open shots when they are practicing.  Just watch any team warm up before a game.  I use to watch Detlef Schrempf warm up before Sonic games and I don't believe I ever saw him miss a shot. 

Bradley had outrageous shooting percentages during his streak in April.  Hope he can return to that, but who knows.

They miss all the time in practice. Rarely do they rarely miss.

Not when they are taking wide open jumpers.  Maybe in scrimmage when they are being defended.   NBA players rarely miss practice shots.

Just randomly search youtube and I'm sure you'll find plenty of players of a NBA player nailing jumper after jumper in practice.  They are the best players in the world.  They aren't being defended... there is no pressure... it's not like the 3 point contest when they are under pressure and there is a time limit.  It's what they do. 

Here's a random one of Tyreke Evans, for example: 



Bradley is a 6'2 shooting guard.   He better be able to hit wide open shots... because he's probably not tall enough to shoot over most of his defenders.

Show me the Perk highlights where he rarely misses. How about Dwight Howard, Shaq? How about Rondo 2 years ago.

Iguadala. John Wall.

Celtics have some great set/jump shooters like Bass and KG and Sully. Bass and KG are probably nba top 5 or top 10 jump shooters for their positions.

Most defensive stoppers are not known for their sweet shooting touch, so it's pretty sweet. If you can't shoot 60% ft in games, you're probably not making every one in practice.

I'm glad to hear the good news about Avery's recovery. You know it must have been frustrating for him. He Still hasn't ever had a full real preseason.

Well they are paid millions of dollars to play basketball. You hope in an open gym a guard like Tyreke can make some. But that one ugly looking shot. An off balance fadeaway J is low percentage shot.

Yeah but whats really great about this footage is how pretty the flight and pace of his ball is. That release is beautiful. A long way from this

This is Jason Terry from a few weeks ago. He hits 17 straight threes.



So far this season he's 2 for 7 on threes. Open practice shots aren't really indicative of how well a player will perform in a game.

I for one cant really imagine finding a thread thats not really making any claims or predictions, and then for no reason, just posting a contradictory reponse (when theres nothing to contradict). My mind just doenst work that way.

Its like if someone posted a video of a player working out and said "wow, hes really working hard", and then someone just posted a comment saying "well, it doesnt mean hes actually gonna be any stronger". Its just like, what is the point?
