I thought this was interesting. Although Rajon Rondo is an excellent pg, with great defense, his shooting ability is .. terrible. There is scientific explanation for it. Enjoy!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxPWPQf13S8&feature=player_embedded

Rondo is 6"1
his wingspan is 6"9 :cry:
His hands are bigger than lebrons and yao mings

No onder he rebounds so well? no onder hes good on the defensive end. No onder he cant shoot properly?

I think the point of this thread was just to educate other members on why rondo is special and why hes a good rebounder and defensive player. Its also to explain why disproportions can negetivly affect a players shooting abilities. Im not saying rondo should use this as an excuse. Im saying this is definatly a factor in his poor shooting.

It's mental actually. In practice he hits all of his jumpers.

He plays for the Celtics he doesnt need to be a shooter thats what ray ray and pierce are for . I think rondo needs to up his game by practice shooting this off season personally the guy is a great PG but shooting he lacks we all know this .

That's not really saying much... Watch a d1 practice...most guards make most of their jumpers...even the ones that can't shoot

Rondo just needs to straight up shoot a thousand jumpers a day in the off season if he truly wants to be a a good shooter...

Total ********. Big hands don't equal bad form and poor confidence.

The big hands part starts later in the video.

It stilll will play a role in why rondos form is bad. Im just saying his wingspan and his play a role in why he shoots bad.im not saying its the sole reason for why he shoots bad.

Sport Science is a terrible show anyways. They make so many terrible assumptions and their calculations and arguments always have flaws.

I disagree, they were just giving information about physical stats of rondo.

that thing at the end was dumb. he was just shooting with gloves on and from a higher level. i wouldn't say that's fair to assume that there's no difference btw big and small hands/height.

so his dick is long because his bones and limbs are long? makes sense to me

didn't even open the video. The reason he is a poor shooter is because his percentage away from the basket is not good...

Really simple

The reason I am standing up is because I got up


I firmly believe that shooters are born shooters...You can improve, sure, but I think biomechanics play a big role.

Super.

He's actually been shooting and making that jumper with regularity lately

Amare is just hitting his prime, and he's been hitting jumpers since phx.

Kidd has been hitting 3's with a better %, but his fg% is still awful

still SHOOTERS are NOT BORN shooters, it takes practice.
taking in the fact of your statements, still Kidd cant make 3s before but now he is hitting a lot of those. also michael redd i believe is supossed to be a defensive player

obviously it takes practice, and I still stand by my statement. If we are talking 3 point shooting, 2 of the greatest players of all time with unbelievable work ethics in jordan and kobe have been below average 3 point shooters...They must have never practiced...

i think anyone can be a good shooter but it takes certain physical traits to be a great shooter.

Long fingers are one of those.

Long arms have nothign to do with it, example Dirk Nowitzki. Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, etc.

Also, Rondo is a high energy player, a lot of high energy guys like him are just not very good shooters because you have to use your legs to shoot as well and if you're always running and expending energy on defense and offense setting others up, you're not going to shoot well, perfect case Jason Kidd. He's always had the touch, he just puts a lot of effort in.

anyone can be a good shooter. I just thought this video was worthy of sharing. It explains physical aspects of rondo and gives us a better understanding of why hes a great rebounder and defender.

Whoever questioned the "him having a big dick means he can't shoot" comment doesn't know what they are talking about. I blame my poor basketball shooting on my abnormally large penis all the time.

the one they did with sasha was pretty cool, he is a sick free throw shooter


Yeah its crazy. Rondos wingspan contradicts divincis theory.

divinci is an idiot then cause im 6'3 barefoot and my wingspan is 6'7
