“What we do basically is we show them the perfect jump shot, which is Ray Allen with his legs, with his form and technique,” Pitino said. “We put it on a split screen with theirs, and the timing is the same. It shows their mistakes, and we go out and work on it.”
Ware, who often shot the ball from too close to his head, had no problem admitting his jumper was all wrong. That’s why he says he’ll have no problem sticking to his new form instead of reverting to the old way.
