Video: Tim Hardaway Jr. drills in 16 3-pointers in a row during workout
The New York Knicks recently signed guard Tim Hardaway Jr. to a four-year, $71 million deal. While almost all analysts criticized the deal, the Knicks clearly have a lot of trust in their former draft pick. The former Atlanta Hawks guard had an amazing season for the Georgia-based franchise last year.
Hardaway averaged 14.5 points, 2.3 assists, and 2.8 rebounds per game for Atlanta last season. His high-point during the year was certainly his performance against the San Antonio Spurs. The former University of Michigan player tied the game with 3.3 seconds left in regulation, added nine points in the overtime period, and scored the go-ahead free throw to win the game.
Now, the Knicks guard is preparing for his first season back in Madison Square Garden. In a recent workout video, Hardaway works incredibly hard to be even better for his original franchise. During the three-minute clip, Hardaway knocks down an amazing 16 three-pointers in a row.
While he does not possess the ball-handling skills his dad, Tim Hardaway Sr., possessed, shooting is definitely a strength. Hardaway knocked down two three-pointers per game on 35.7 percent shooting last year. If he gets his percentage in the 40-45 percent range, he could have an even better season for the Knicks next year.
