No it’s not you. That’s what shooters tend to do when making the leap to a level where they are at huge physical disadvantages. I always preach how basketball is a game of reaction and not thinking......and if you are on a court thinking at this level you have no chance. It took Doug McDermott 3-4 years to slow the game down as well. These things take time with shooters but without being in a comfort zone a shooter has no chance at sustained success.I think his shot is there but as HRB notes, he's still trying to figure when to shoot, when to drive, and when to pull-up (although he hasn't hit any pull-up jumpers in SL to my memory).
He still looks like he's thinking too much but maybe that's just me.
