ESPN posted this article yesterday focused on guys like Curry and Leonard are training with strobe lights, yes you read that right. This training method was secretly originated by Jordan in the 90's and only a select few Chicago natives had access to this with MJ. This is a really cool and informative piece, talks about all of the bright lights and flashes during the course of a game that can impact a shooter.

Just guessing, but it probably has to do with the fact that your mind tends to filter background things out as unimportant, so you can concentrate on more important things. By momentarily blinding you, your mind is forced to reprocess everything you're seeing again.

Def makes sense. I wonder if this can be attributed to Kawhi's hot start from the free throw line thus far.

it's a reaction time thing, I think it makes a ton of sense, probably helps with seeing defenders as well
