That shot is ugly, and those looks are barely contested.

Not a put down, kid looks talented. Just being harsh because of LeBron's name being in the title.

Re: LaVon is LeBron like

To be expected...he is not on LBJ:s level but he is Big 6'6 Strong 220lbs with a skill set that allows him to play 5 positions in HS and will play SF in College .....if he works hard his game can resemble LBJ because he loves to pass and is quick for his size.....

It seems to me that all his shooting flaws are entirely fixable. His set-up is a little off balance because he has a tendency to bring the ball from right to left. His release point is nice and high - if sometimes slightly off-center. He also generates good rotation despite a slightly abbreviated follow through. Give me 2 months with the kid, and I would get his free throw percentage between 83 and 90%. Imagine what professional NBA shot coaches could do with him. Look what they did for Kawhi Leonard, for crying out loud. This kid has the potential to be a consistent shooter if he wants to work at it.

Not everybody has the capacity to revamp technique and apply the changes consistently. I can name you a dozen other players that never overcame their shooting form quirks, and Leonard was a guy who just wasn't asked to shoot in college. He played PF on that squad the majority of the time, he was too busy gobbling up double doubles to perfect his deep ball. To be honest, Kawhi's form was actually pretty solid coming into the draft.

Re: LaVon is LeBron like

In that video, Kawhi's release is long and slow and his elbow is everywhere. He cleaned up his form considerably. Still, he's a perfect example for my point. He need some small tweaking like Vince Carter or Jason Terry did when they first came in the league not a complete revamp like Michael Kidd-Gilchrist or Al-Farouq Aminu.

This Long kid (who this thread is about) looks to me to be a lot closer to Leonard, Carter, and Terry in terms of fixable quirks than he does to MKG or Aminu. That's just my opinion. Also, I'm only talking about his shot. The rest of his game is fluid and controlled, but I didn't see anything on those highlights that showed me he was explosive or particularly quick.

He will become quicker and more explosive with the college weight training conditioning and skill work...looking forward to seeing what this 6 weeks of workouts will do for his already College ready body ...shooting is muscle memory and he will put the work in
