    Kosta Koufos actually had a pretty good shot. Hit a respectable 34.9% from 3 on 1.7 attempts per game his frosh year.

    He never shoots them in the pros.

    I remember going to the scrimmage his rookie year. Koufus came out and hit a three pointer for the first shot of the game. The guy behind me said, “He’ll never shoot that in a game.”

    Hitting a shot in a game is very different from in practice.

    Mark Gasol developed a three point shot. Rudy could do it too, but I prefer to see him dunk.

    I’m okay with him shooting 5 threes a game during FIBA.

    I’m cool with him working on it... you can only lift sprint dunk so much in a day. I love shooting it’s relaxing as hell for me... always has been.

    I’m more on board with he doesn’t need to shoot the three and likely isn’t really good at it. I think almost every nba player can hit 50-60% of their threes in an open gym setting... this just isn’t something I’d get excited about... that’s all.

    I’m sure he is working on that but so much this... if he became a 75% ft shooter that is a bigger improvement than becoming a 30-35% 3 point shooter.

    He shot like 40% from the free throw line last year... so that percentage was fluky or he is broken... I do remember when we picked him thinking he’d be a shooter... nope.

    If he can be Rudy Barry and hit 90% on underhanded free throws, I'd be willing to contribute a lot of money for that.

    Rather see him work on his free throws and midrange game.

    Really? I have a hard time believing that because that would be really impressive. Like, you should be playing professional basketball impressive.

    Shaq hit most of his free throws in practice. Not saying Rudy couldn't hit a 3, but ill believe it when it happens in a game. Even then...why bother? Get him as close to the basket as possible.

    Even my cat with his tiny paw can make a NbA 3 before Brick Simmons!

    No coach in their right mind would ever set a play for that shot. That is just Rudy having fun.

    Shot 70% on 50 attempts in an open gym... there’s no pressure... you get in a rhythm... in high school I used to make 12-15 in a row regularly in practice (hs 3 pt line) I’m a good shooter but several of the guys I play pickup with are just as good. That’s why I always laugh at these videos.

    Do you remember Robert Swift? Lotto pick bust... played in a league with him a couple years ago... dude can bang threes all day in open gym... I think his ft shooting was ***... there’s a big difference between open gym and nba game. I’d venture to guess guys make 50% of whatever their open gym percentage is.

    I saw Swift play in high school. There were cameras there from espn filming his game.

    I wasn't impressed.

    And Fisher hit one of the most incredible shots from 3-pt land in NBA history with .03 seconds left to win the game.
