There are an awful lot of superstars currently in the NBA.
Each of them has their own special talents, benefits, and personalities.
And each of them has their own shooting style that you sometimes don’t notice.
Which is the most accurate? 😂

A very talented and skilled basketball fan impersonated some of the biggest names in the game and expertly replicated their shooting style in a very impressive, humorous, and supremely accurate way.
Watching the video will make you see things you haven’t always noticed, like how Ja Morant of the Memphis Grizzlies has a very slow wind-up before he takes his shot or how both Nikola Jokic and Luka Doncic do a little Nowitzki-esque kick when taking a shot.
Yes, many of the best stars in the league are very unique and particular in how they play – and that’s part of what makes the NBA so fun these days.
A Shooter’s League
It wasn’t too long ago when the NBA was filled with much bigger, stronger, and physically intimidating players.
Now, the association is crowded with smaller and faster guys who perform like guards more than centers.
Indeed, it really has become a league full of people who are able to shoot incredibly well, with a little personal flair of course.
Even the league’s best big man, Jokic of the Denver Nuggets, has become an excellent shooter and isn’t just relying on his size.
This shows just how much the NBA now values versatility and excellent offense over everything else.
Will it always be that way?
That’s unlikely, there will come a time when the game reverts back to its old ways at least for a while.
But for now, the league is all about flashy and fun shooting.
