I have loved basketball for as long as I can remember. Growing up and playing the game I realized I was going to have to become great at shooting the ball if I were to ever make any team.
I would watch Michael Jordan do his fade away over and over on his movie “Come Fly With Me.” Below is an example of a perfect fade away by Jordan.
As you can tel,l Jordan really took the fade away to another level.
Later on, one Kobe Bryant took on the fade away shot and from the looks of things he really practiced at this shot to make it second nature to him. Watch below:
Now I bring you to the reason I am writing this. Good ‘ol Josh Smith. I will be the first to admit it that maybe the ball slipped, maybe it was blocked and you can’t really notice from the angle. Josh Smith should maybe watch a few of these YouTube videos before he attempts another shot like he did last night against the Dallas Mavericks. Words can’t even explain what type of fade away this was.
You have to watch to believe for yourself.
