Reggie Miller provides Bradley Beal tips with comment on workout video
It’s official — Reggie Miller has become yet another one of the former players that thinks they can tell current NBA players what to do and how to do it.
Beal was working on a separation move from line-to-line, turning a potential shot from the wing to a mid-range step-back.
Though it wasn’t long before Miller offered his two cents on Beal’s offseason workout:
“Love the move, love the footwork,” Miller wrote. “Only thing I would change, he needs to be making and shooting this (these) [sic] shots minimum at the college 3-point line. Preferred NBA 3-pt [sic] line. That’s a baby shot, defenders are too good in the league. Just a suggestion, I love the grind thou [sic] Bradley.”
While an 18-year NBA career brought Miller a ton of credibility, it hast at times fallen apart during his commentary while calling games for TNT.
Miller has often mentioned how the mid-range game is a lost art and how players nowadays are only taking threes and lay-ups, yet it is the same exact thing he’s prompting Beal to do.
Hanlen didn’t take long to explain to Miller that the purpose of the drill was to create separation, not to replicate a shot he’d take during a game.
Beal is a career 40-percent three-point shooter, who’s made 100 or more threes in three straight seasons. The Florida alum is fresh off signing a five-year, $127-million contract with the Wizards.
Due to the walking contradiction that Miller is on and off the air — as stated by Rule 7 of the Reggie Miller drinking game — I might just have to take a drink.
