There are a lot of superstars in the NBA right now.
Each of them has their own talents, advantages and personalities.
And each of them has their own shooting style that you sometimes don’t notice.
Which is more accurate? 😂

A very talented and skilled basketball fan personified some of the biggest names in the game and skillfully replicated their shooting style in a very impressive, humorous and extremely accurate way.
Watching the video will make you see things you haven’t always noticed, like how Ja Morant of the Memphis Grizzlies has a very slow wind-up before shooting or how Nikola Jokic and Luka Doncic do a little Nowitzki-esque kick when shooting.
Yes, many of the league’s top stars are very unique and particular in the way they play – and that’s part of what makes the NBA so fun these days.
A league of shooters
Not so long ago, the NBA was filled with much bigger, stronger, and physically intimidating players.
Now the association is crowded with smaller, faster guys who function as guards more than centers.
Indeed, it really has become a league full of people who are able to shoot incredibly well, with a bit of personal flair of course.
Even the league’s best big man, Jokic of the Denver Nuggets, has become an excellent shooter and doesn’t just rely on his size.
It shows how much the NBA now values versatility and excellent offense over everything else.
Will it always be like this?
It’s unlikely, there will come a time when the game will return to its old ways at least for a while.
But for now, the league is all about flashy, fun shooting.
