"I always try to get to the basket first. If I'm open, I'm
definitely going to take the 3. But you can get caught up in shooting
3s. Once they start going in, you can lose yourself a bit. And you
always want to stay true to yourself."
Please God! No. Not that. Don't let John Salmons lose himself
because all of his threes are going in. Don't do it John! Don't do
it! Stay true to yourself John, don't sink those threes.
Okay, I get what he means, you don't want to just start jacking up long jumpshots if you can work for a better shot. My problem is that frequently when Salmons works for a better shot that he gives up a wide open set shot three to dribble into a contested 20 footer.
We frequently aren't getting better shots by turning down the wide open threes.
