Every offseason, players, teams, agents and trainers post videos of players making an inordinate number of shots in a row to demonstrate a player’s skills and/or improvement.
Watch Yovel Zoosman drains 51 3's in a row 😱 pic.twitter.com/vF3OtFD7Cg— Maccabi Tel Aviv BC (@MaccabitlvBC) June 11, 2020
Yovel Zoosman, according to Basketball Reference, shot 28.2% from the three-point line in EuroLeague play this season.
Is this tweet demonstrating his improvement since the season ended? Maybe.
Is 51 three-pointers in a row impressive? Yes.
However, what does it mean? Unless he is preparing for shooting competitions, and that’s his objective, shots in a row are meaningless unless they transfer to game performance. We do not practice for Instagram likes; we practice to shoot better during games.
