I once tried to shoot free throws using my left hand as the shooting hand. I’m a righty so it didn’t work at all. I’m talking airballs in every direction. Giving “wide left” a whole new meaning.
So how on earth did Tristan Thompson manage to switch his shooting hand? No matter how screwed up his form was before, he was at least used to it. I’m thinking that when Tristan retires in a decade or so, he can start giving classes to other shooters with unworkable shooting motions. And, hopefully, a thirty-year-old Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will be at the front of the line, because every time he shoots the ball, another endangered species is wiped off the planet.
