He might not be just a shooter...
Nik's been working hard in the gym this summer. He's gained 15+ lbs and 6" vertical. Now up to 38" vertical.
But just a shot at the rim.
Dude, that's some deep shit.
What if he spent too much time practicing everything else but shooting and is now everyting but a shooter?
We go from "Stauskas is not just a shooter" to "Stauskas is just not a shooter."
No confidence at all.
But can he shoot?
9 Feet 11 Inches....LIES
out the exchange rate for Candadian inches, bro. Common mistake.
This def gives him a small FX advantage on his vertical. This coming from a finance guy with a plant in CAN.
Seriously. I couldn't do that on a 10ft hoop, but 9'11"? ALL DAY.
a shooter. don't worry about focusing on other parts, shooters will always shoot good. he just need quickness and defense worked on.
Something's broken here man
What is this, an embed for ants?
Where's the damn embed?
Man this kid works his ass off. Just as you can't teach talent, you can't teach work ethic and drive, and Nik has those in spades.
Nice hood he lives in.
New target is Devin Robinson. How can this guy not come to Michigan with that name?
New shooting technique...jump from beyond the 3 point line and then dunk it
Are you a wizard.
Staukus strikes me as a hungry player who is drastically elevating his overall game. He could end up being an 18ppg guy for us. Lets hope Robinson and Mcgary have made similar strides! Hate to admit but....im freaking anxious for December! Gasssspppp
For some get-off-my-lawn'ers to come on here and say he's being too selfish and look-at-me. There is a hater for everything.
WE BACK ON
You get the sense that Nik is just determined to show people what he can do and show people the range of his game with each season, as well as what he is working on the moment. You have to like the work ethic certainly.
Good stuff. Thanks for sharing it!
Well gentlemen... If you read it you know what to do... DRINK
This video is bigger than my life.
as an unfortunate aside, this thread breaks the mobile app.
I've had a few beers, but where the hell is the video?
He can shoot, he can finish, if he has the consistent first step and handles to get from the perimeter to the rim he's gold. I just hope he can hae a consistent year this year. Last year had some crazy games and then some where did he go games.
How about including a link because that embed ain't doin it.
You broke the Internet.
...couldn't get that extra inch of rim. It's okay, many of us wish we had an extra inch.
Am I the only one concerned about the brickwork behind the rim as a potential cause of injury? Safety first Nik!
