It’s a widespread belief that Tyreke’s 2010-11 season was disappointing, albeit injury-riddled – largely due to the fact that opposing defenses keyed in on his ability (or lack thereof) to knock down a mid range shot. Now I don’t know about other Kings fans, but I’ve spent almost the entirety of this offseason explaining to people what life would be like if ‘Reke had a jumper.
Well ladies and gentlemen, I’ve got good news:
According to the Sacramento Bee, Tyreke’s been working hard on both his conditioning and jump shot. While his shooting motion still looks like something out of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” (see photo above), if he succeeds at improving his jumper, this could mean nightmares for opposing defenses. Evans can already get to the basket at will, and the addition of a jump shot will elevate his offensive game to an almost unguardable level
With the addition of shooters John Salmons and Jimmer Fredette, the Kings already have the ability to light it up from outside, but once their floor general gets on board, look out – we could be seeing an offense which rivals that of the greatest show on court.
