Successful Shot Selection
A few months ago me and some buddies were at a sports bar watching the NBA Western Conference Finals between the Suns and Lakers. Kobe Bryant pulls up for a forced fade away jumper with Jared Dudley's hand all over his face and just drains it, Buckets!
In the middle of this crowded bar my two boyz begin having this heated debate about taking a shot with a hand in the face or shooting the open High Percentage shot. Some where in between listening to their debate and looking at this fine dime piece that had just walked through the entrance, I had a thought.
Well, besides the obvious one. I remembered asking myself, " when was the last time I saw Steve Nash take a bad shot?" And I had a hard time trying to remember the last time I had seen that. At this point my boyz had temporarily stoped their conversation because Steve Nash had just hit a wide open three to tie the game at 90-90 with 8 minutes left in the fourth quarter. Before I can even say a word my buddy stands up from his chair and just blurts out: " hell yeah, F the Lakers, Kobe ain't better than Nash, cuz Nash always be taking that High Percentage shot".
