    Default Rondae's shoulder shake = better ft shooting?

    now maybe im crazy, i guess i should just just check some replays, but is it me or didn't rondae start shaking his shoulder before free throw attempts after his horrible 0-5 start to i think the stanford game. if this is true im pretty sure he's gone 6-6 since pretty impressive if you ask me.

    He always did it, then Coach mentioned in a presser they would simplify his motion before the Stanford game. Then I think in a certain timeout of the Stanford game, after Rondae had bricked a bunch of ft's, Miller says something like "do whatever you have to" and Rondae resumed the wiggle, and he actually hit his FTs.

    If anyone is wondering why he does that motion, it's to "reset" his shoulders and upper body. Players with very long arms often feel the need to do that, like their shoulders and arms are "loose" when they are shooting the ball. Pretty sure Durant does the same thing, which is probably where Rondae picked it up.

    He was doing it in games prior, but when he started doing them in the Stanford game, he did start to make them. He wasn't doing it during those 5 misses.

    Maybe the team should shake their shoulders before their jump shots too...

    The reason that I have noticed is that in the beginning Rondae wouldn't start his shooting motion so fast after the wiggle.
    I noticed when he hit the FT on the "AND 1" after he did his wiggle he took longer before beginning his shooting motion and he sank it.
    Rondae most seems to be in a rush especially at the FT line.
    If we could Rondae to slow down somehow on the floor and at the line I think his point production would rise pretty heavily.
