    Default Ugliest Stroke in the NBA History?

    Who would you put in your top 3 ugliest stroke list? here is my list...

    1. Shawn Marion = everytime he shoots the ball im LMAO , he shoots like if he was playing basketball for the first time in his life you know..? with two hands! right from the chest! haha.. the stroke is just so ugly and unprofesional... i just cant believe he shoots like that because if i did shoot like that in my basketball team my coach would Rape me!! But the miracle is that he actually can hit those shots and still be a great player! It just schocked me when i saw him play for the first time, when i saw him play i saw him Block,steal,rebound,dunk he was scoring like 30 points that time, i was like "WOW! this guy is really skilled!! my favourite player!!" then i saw him shoot a 3PTer and miss it AIR BALL, mannn... just the STROKE, wow, so ugly.. got shocked how a good player like that dont know how to shoot a decent basketball stroke!

    2. Shaquille Oneal = he holds the ball with his finger tips and just flaps it and misses aswell.. terrible stroke... terrible accuracy..

    3. Bill Cartwright = no comment.. just ugly

    How about two of our own

    When shooting a jumpshot...

    Dale Davis or Jeff Foster

    I wince every time one of those guys launches anything outside of 5 feet.

    I don't really mind Fosters jumper. What about Austins' tho...? Whoa... it's just out there waiting to get blocked.

    Actually, Foster's jumper looks really pretty, but since he doesn't really practice it, it never goes in as much...it honestly looks really nice stroke
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    If we're talking form then Reggie's ranks right down there with the worst of them - he never squares his legs and its more of a push shot than a pure jumper. You'd never show tape of Reggie when you're teaching someone to shoot. Foster's form is much better.

    I think Reggies stroke is very very sweet.. but maybe today its weaker yes.. he is not perfect tho, because always after he releases the ball he always smacks his right wrist to the left forearm/wrist "SMACK!" you can almost hear it when he does it.. have you noticed it?

    But you all have to agree on Ray Allen... thats the sweetest stroke ive seen from any Baller in NBA History.. just how he jumps so high in air and holds the ball so perfectly like if it was Piccaso designing his shooting form and flips the wrist and follows thru, it looks like slow motion... so smooth so beutifull

    My stroke looks pretty much like Reggie's to, probably because I was obsessed with him like some of the other posters on this board are when I was younger. Just rubbed off on me I guess, but hey if it goes in it doesn't matter what your form looks like.

    One of my favorites all-time, Rick Barry, had the granny shot going. People think it's silly but they're just stupid, especially in this era in where it's all about looking cool and not about performance.
