Lonzo Ball Has A New Shooting Form ?

One of the most debated topics among Laker fans all of last season has been guard Lonzo Ball’s whacky looking jump shot. And it look like this offseason Lonzo decided to do something about it.

Some fans of the Los Angeles Lakers insist that his form must be changed if he ever wants to be an accurate three-point shooter, pointing out his subpar 31 percent from downtown in his rookie season. Others claim that changing the eldest Ball’s form at this stage would be counter-productive, and reference his 41 percent three-point shooting in his sole season at UCLA as proof his form can still be effective.

Regardless of what your opinion is , there appears to be an interesting development regarding Ball and his puzzling jumper. The Laker Instagram account posted a short clip of Lonzo shooting jumpers with a new looking form, suggesting there could be changes coming for next season.

Lonzo’s previous style was infamous for being offline, angled to the left side of his head so that it seemed like his right arm was blocking his view of the basket, which made it impossible to get a shot over a defender from the left side of the floor. This new form looks significantly straighter, and both the ball and his shooting arm look to be dead on with the basket.

While this new look technically a big improvement from Lonzo’s last form, it remains to be seen if Lonzo will actually use this form and if his shooting will improve with it.
