I don’t have much to say about this video, but the moment at 0:52 speaks for itself. At first glance, it looks like a normal end-of-half play, but look closer. Those between-the-legs dribbles are what you should be directing your attention towards. What the heck? Is Bojan Bogdanovic… lifting his leg to do the dribble?
Honestly, that’s pathetic. That’s like how I do between-the-legs dribbles, but it’s okay for me since I have the worst handles ever. That’s not okay for an NBA player. Did they spend so much time in Europe on how to shoot a basketball that they forget to teach him how to do one of the most basic dribble moves in existence? How is ever going to do a Shammgod in game if he dribbles like a middle schooler?
Perhaps I’m overreacting. Maybe, if I looked at footage of other NBA players doing the same “move”, I would see the same thing. But I don’t think so. I am shocked to my core right now, and it’s going to taint my view of Bogdanovic for the whole rest of the season, even as he averages like 20 points a game for one of the top teams in the East.
