The modern NBA entails stretch big men playing away from the basket, being able to drain shots from the perimeter, thus drawing their opponents further from the hoop.
It’s a big shift from roughly a decade ago, when big men dominated in the paint — attacking and defending the rim, and not really moving away from it.
Blake Griffin entered the league with a skill set of that of the old-school big men, but now, at 30 years of age, he’s revamped his game a bit. And he’s apparently working on his three-point shot to reflect that. Check out this recent video of him draining three-pointers at will.
Buckets for days.
