The Bulls, in trying to quicken Grant's shooting stroke

Have absolutely wrecked it for the time being. This summer will be huge for his improvement.


It wasn't that good in the first place

We all remember Grant's occasional shooting streaks, but he was far from a great shooter. He knew that as well as anyone, so he intentionally limited his three point attempts if early heat checks made that decision prudent. He only averaged 3.7 attempts per conference game his final season.

Jerian's three point shooting percentages (overall/conference) were:

2014-15 - 31.6%/29.9%
2013-14 - 40.8%/NA
2012-13 - 34.4%/34.1%
2011-12 - 35.4%/33.0%

I always thought his problem was inconsistent shooting form - often not balanced, varying release points. Grant is capable of being a decent shooter. If the Bulls coaches can get his fundamentals right shot after shot, he'll have a nice career in Chicago. Otherwise he will be a journeyman point guard.


Another strange aspect of Jerians three point shooting

the tougher the shot the better he shoots them. He's also a better shooter off the dribble.

"I'm better when I move."


Very appropriate. Nice memory. *

He needs to penetrate

Get in the paint and either pass or finish.
Very unselfish player, but looks very unsure of himself when shooting.


He's played very well this month

While he is 0-2 today, he started three games at the end of the year for rondo and scored 15 in each of them. I believe his 3 point % is about ten points higher this year than last.
