Uh-oh, Derrick Rose has a consistent three-point shot

Watch out, folks. Derrick Rose has been working on his jumper and he’s ‘ecstatic’ about the way it has developed.

“It’s there; I have a consistent 3-point shot now,” Rose said Wednesday night. “You’ll see. I just have so much confidence in my jump shot now. It’s coming along so good. It’s past even my expectations at this point.”

I wonder if he got someone else take those practice shots for him.


Rose only shot 27% from long range last season, but only took 0.8 threes per game. After the All-Star Break he shot 29% on 1.4 attempts per game.

What’s amazing is that even without deep range, he’s still able to get to the rim because he’s so wickedly quick and strong. If he starts to shoot in the 35%-40% range, he’s going to be unstoppable offensively.
