In his book Dark Witness Ralph Wiley recalled a time he took his son to a Bullets/76ers game. In doing so Wiley relayed a conversation about NBA players getting their shots. I could be way off on this one, but upon reading it I thought Wiley was being was both figurative and literal. With the former Wiley was trying to make the point that people such as his son need to get opportunities and then take advantage of them. In the case of the latter Wiley was stressing how important it is for a player to make his shots if he expects to last in the NBA. That brings me to this post, which I have been meaning to write for about two weeks now. Thankfully Ray Allen's recent buzzer beater finally pushed me over the edge and gave me some video to back up my point. So let's go to the clip, which I have posted below.

- YouTube clips that are made to prove a point about a player that an expert has previously criticized. Never mind that they are generally glorified highlight films. You may recall some fantastic Merill Hoge/Vince Young YouTube efforts from about a year ago such as this one. Take that NFL. Of course Young is now struggling mightily. Also I hope my inclusion of the Gerald Green mix does not offend Rick Kamla. You're the man Rick!
- Gerald Green's jump shot.
