Video: Carmelo helps Griffin work on step-back jumper

13 Comments

This is why guys come back from things like the Olympics as better players.

Blake Griffin needs to work on his perimeter shot, it’s gotten a little better but it’s not a threat teams have to respect yet. Part of hitting that shot is making sure you have space to get your shot off on the wing. And Carmelo Anthony is one of the best at creating just enough space to get his shot off (he doesn’t fear taking the contested jumper, either).

Interesting little video from Team USA practice of Anthony talking to Griffin about how to do a little step back.
