How about some good news after the Cincinnati game? Faithful readers may recall that I posted a few games back that I had a system for our teams improving their free throw shooting. The system itself is amazingly complex and technical but it goes like this:
First, when we are at the line, the camera angle must be from the side showing both the shooter and the rim. This is critical. When the camera angle is either from behind the shooter or behind the backboard, the system is invalid and we suck.
Second, when we do have the side camera angle, I must not stare at either the shooter or the rim directly. Rather, I must stare into the space between the shooter and the rim (a little like those pictures you have to stare at cross-eyed for a minute to see the actual image). Also, I have found that following the ball from the shooters hand to the rim is even more effective. (I never stop looking for ways to improve the system).
So, how did we do? For the game we were a respectable 17-23 for 73.9%. However, when we had the proper camera angle and I did my thing, we were 12 of 12. Perfect. Individuals were:
Ware, Russ and Gorgui all 1-1
So CC'ers here is the dilemma. We need for someone to get to the guys in the truck, and make sure we get that side camera angle. No close ups of the shooters face or any of that crap. SIDE CAMERA ANGLE. Ok CC'ers. make it happen. I'll do my part.
