Being Versatile Just Means More Ways To Screw Up

The Downbeat – 24 November 2009 – #107 – The Sparkly Edition – SLC Dunk.

That’s Fessenko’s shot chart for the season. I can’t even make fun of him. So many guys you complain about them thinking they have a ten foot jumper. Not Fess. Nope, just put-backs and layups, baby. Two years in the D-League will teach you to eschew those things that won’t get you paid. Like jump-shots. And hook-shots. And shots that require more than lifting arm and dropping ball. You know. Fancy stuff.
