Sport Science:Ray Allen (中文字幕)


when analyzing Ray Allen’s 3-pointers the first component to examine is launch angle studies have shown that the ideal for a three-pointer is 48 degrees our analysis reveals then in the 0.73 seconds it normally takes hour to get a shot off he consistently creates a launch angle within just two degrees of idea next release point accuracy improves the closer you can release the ball on a plane that’s parallel to the rim that’s because that plane represents the shortest distance between the ball and the buck less distance means you have a larger margin of error it approaches that plane by consistently timing his mechanics perfectly to release the ball at the apex of his jump with the ball almost nine feet off the ground that’s one of the reasons his three-point percentage from the left corner is roughly 41 percent higher than the NBA average finally backspin Allen puts about two Hertz or two rotations per second on the ball this helps decelerate the ball when it strikes the backboard or the rim using friction to shed energy and lose velocity and a slower ball is more likely to fall for three from the corner at least twenty two feet out a three-pointer will likely Clank off the rim if the shooters lateral aim is off by just a single degree and he’s aiming for a target pulling about 88 square inches that’s less than one-fifth the size of the average major league strike zone for ESPN sports science I’m John Brenkus

  1. If the ball is shot with less spin it will go faster in the air, and it'll drop further and if it hits the rim, the ball will bounce out. When the ball is shot with backspin, it will go slower in the air and the drops closer, so a well calculated shot will go in the basket.

  2. LOL… I totally just tried to click on your 4:45 link to watch John go pee before reading the rest of your comment….

  3. it's easy to make that mistake, but it actually is preferable to have a LARGER margin of error. The larger your margin of error, the more room you have for "mistakes" [ie; poor back spin, adjustments for on coming defenders].

  4. If you're starting with punctuation you hardly need to say 'first'. Punctuation shouldn't have a capital unless it is at the start of a sentence, or is the name of a place or an unfortunate individual.

  5. @dthvduw You know he is the awesome. but cant believe that i got a NFL jersey for nothing here–> bit.ly/VHx1NM?=ubsjtq

  6. You just copied that from the Kahwi Leonard Sports Science video -.-, click on show comment on Ivar Faerman's top comment

  7. "Accuracy improves the closer you can release the ball on a plane that's parallel to the rim. That's because that plane because that plane represents the shorter distance between the ball and the bucket. Less distance means you have a larger margin of error." ………. If the accuracy is increased, shouldn't there be a smaller margin of error? Apparently his 3 point percentage from the left corner is roughly 41% higher than the NBA average when the NBA average is 39%, and Ray Allen's is 55%.

  8. You really didn't explain that well, you said its preferable to have a larger amount of error, but then you say you have more room for mistakes. Don't you want less room for mistakes? Plus, on coming defenders wouldn't effect his shot mechanics when he puts up an open three

  9. A shot from parallel to the rim would not be on the shortest path. That's not what makes it easier to make baskets the higher you shoot. Shooters put an arc on the ball, so if they go closer to the rim on release point, they would only be arcing it higher than the rim, making it a farther distance. What makes it better to release from higher, as well as have a higher arc, is that the rim becomes less of an oval shape and more round when the ball is falling, increasing the relative size of it.

  10. You don't understand high school math, then. A shot released while parallel to the rim IS the shortest path. The lower you are from the rim, the more power and angle your shot has to be in order to get to the same point. Meaning, it has to travel a longer distance. It's always easier to make a shot from a shorter distance….

    Just look at the old "Bozo the Clown" shows. Kids always make the first bucket……….

  11. When it comes to releasing the ball at the top of your jump…This is incorrect. As soon as you leave the air, you are slowing down, the power-chain is not focused not only on your shot, but also on your jump. If you release the ball just after you leave the ground then you will have put all the power created in your jump into powering the ball into the air.

    Think about it. Wouldn't higher jumpers or taller people be better shooters? Wouldn't a good tip for shooting better be jumping higher? No

  12. it gives you a direct comparison so you'll know ray is 41% more likely to make a shot than the nba average. 55%=39%*(1+41%)

  13. Let's say Ray Allen is 45% and NBA average is 30% Ray Allen is 50% better than the NBA average because 50% of 30(NBA avg) is 15% and 15 + 30 is 45% Or in math terms, 45/30 = 1.5 -1 = 50%

  14. Not exactly. Three-point shooting isn't so much about power as it is about form. The further one gets from the basket, the more power that is needed, but not that close from the rim (from the 3-point line). And it doesn't exactly work the way you are describing about taller shooters. It isn't, "if you are taller, you shoot better". You can be any height, but as long as you jump where the ball is parallel to the rim, you have the best chance of making it in.

  15. What you are saying makes no logical sense. You practice form to make your shot more efficient, the more efficient the shot, the more consistent it is.

    If being more parallel to the rim is so important then it WOULD correlate with taller shooters or higher jumpers but It doesn't. In fact, those that do jump high when shooting aren't nearly as good shooters as those that don't jump so high but release closer to the floor. Read the article, 5 of the Biggest Basketball Shooting Mistakes.

  16. OK, fine. I agree with your first point. But explain to me what power has to do with making shots? Its not as if the more powerful one is, or the more power you generate can you then make in more shots consistently. It's not that the number of basketballs that are put through the rim correlates *exponentially* with power. From a physical standpoint, shooting has to do with form, movement of oneself and the ball, and the atmospheric pressure at which one is shooting the ball.

  17. The definition of power I'm using is weight/speed=power. Look into the mechanics of the golf swing, obviously golfers want to be strong but they will tell you that technique is so much more important to create power. Similarly with basketball, we want to perfect our technique so that there is no loss of energy throughout the movement. In fact a perfect basketball shot will accumulate energy all the way through the movement and reach it peak velocity at the zenith of the shot. CONTINUED ABOVE.

  18. Sure, a guy could be way more powerful when they measure his bench press or punch. But this doesn’t translate well if you are not shooting correctly. This is obvious if you were to shoot with your legs straight, you lose a ton of power. Now once you’re shot is extremely efficient and stable, then all you’ve really got to estimate is the distance of the shot.

  19. Tsk Tsk Tsk Ray Allen. You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain.

  20. Allen releases the ball in the same time that you have to hit a 140kph cricket ball (or baseball for Americans)

  21. ur kidding right? they don't practice 3s, that's why they don't shoot em and when they do most likely they miss… god, people are stupid…

  22. It is interesting to compare this with Stephen Curry's Sport Science. He said 48 degrees is the best shooting angle but Curry releases at 50-55 degrees. So it is interesting what researches support that 48 degrees is the best shooting angle. I doubt he only put data together without any explanation why two different shooting form both can work.

  23. I think its pretty cool that while Ray Allen and Stephen Curry are both incredible shooters, they have quite different mechanics: Ray releases the ball at the apex of his jump, while Curry releases it going up. Both very efficient jumpshots tho ✌
