Anyone old enough to remember Mark Jackson’s playing days will recall his disgusting jumper. So it’s quite surprising to the see the current Golden State Warriors coach owning Stephen Curry, the best shooter in the NBA, in a three-point contest.
Seriously, it’s unnerving to watch the sweet-shooting Curry lay brick and after brick while Jackson finds the bottom of the net with a full-body herkie-jerk.
And yet .. it happened.
A contest from halfcourt, however, would surely have a different outcome.
