Well ladies and gentlemen, he finally did it. Albeit against Guangzhou...

Obviously it's preseason, so I don't really count it as him actually having "developed a shot" or whatever, but I wonder if he'll finally make one in the regular season.

There was footage of him hitting three in a row at practice. Definitely on the horizon..

This is one of those moments when you just hate that players can't be inducted to the HOF while they are still active.

He can hit all the the threes he wants, there is a lack of drive or will to win or something going on with him.    So passive, and wilts under pressure.

Maybe I'm in minority, but must say his form on that shot looked nice and effortless. I expect he will be taking more and more of them, starting in non-pressure situations (big lead) and eventually fold it into his game. This could be game breaking for him and the Sixers.

Oh I don't really think this take was supported by what happened yesterday. He was 2/6 from the line and the take over liberty ballers is that he is still shooting with the wrong hand. He has been able to hit the threes in practices going back a few years. Not sure at the end of a half blowing out a non-nba team in an exhibition has much more value than that.

It's progress. In a few more years he'll probably be hitting 1.5 threes per game for the Lakers.

He's going to be rookie of the year.
