So, Rudy Gay hasn't been shooting well this season. I know, it's shocking news to everyone! Anyway, after the loss to Brooklyn, he hit the court and put up 500 shots.

Gay got up 500 shots following Tuesday’s last-second loss to Brooklyn.

“You just have to get back into the gym and get back to the basics. The only thing I could do after that game was to go out and shoot some jump shots. Get that out of my head and work on my game,” Gay explained after a spirited practice Thursday.


My Angelic side says, Good for him to work on his game.

My NOT so Angelic side says, well... let's just say the Comedy writes itself... :p:p

This is what he should be doing, not thread worthy.

i don't buy it. nobody with that level of commitment would consistently shoot that poorly.

That's the thing tho, it's not just shooting, he sucks overall. Hollinger knew this and wanted him gone asap, which he made happen.

most players do this so who cares?

Maybe its a mental thing for him during the pressure of game time? At practice and shoot around its nothing to drain shots cause they don't mean anything. Just you working on your craft. During a game that's a huge difference with everyone eyes on you and expecting you to put up a certain number of points and all the expectations. I can imagine it being tough to overcome that. No one can ever put a burden on you like the one you can put on yourself.

That's the problem. It's like closing the barn door...

Being a NBA player is his job. 500 shots is nothing, thats like 12 shots a minute. He can do it in less than 1 hour (give him rest so about 1.5). Typical students study more than that amount.

Hes a basketball player, he should be practicing basketball...

almost the same amount he takes in a game, the real question is how much did he make?

That's more shots than Iverson took in practice in his whole career.

So he is even a ball hog in practice.

At least he is happy (Gay)

Didn't know which one I wanted to go with. ..

not thread worthy at all.
