He also worked to put on some muscle mass which should help him out finishing around the rim but also fighting thru screens and being more physical. Given his age, like he doesn’t even have grown man strength yet.

But look at the body improvement. Dude is yolked
Haha thats Mack Wilson right?

I'm hopeful. Wish he improves his D and gets a decent barber in the future

The worst thing to happen to his haircut would be for him to pop while he has it and it becomes "his style" and he has to keep it like the Harden beard.

@TyGuy His shooting form still seems off to me. His windup seems to have a lot of side to side movement instead of going straightup.

Yep his load up is coming complete wank adding a large amount of time to his release and reducing his accuracy.

I think you two are too critical of his form. I think it looks fine other than him crossing his legs, but does it really matter, and is it really fixable? I think he naturally has knock knees. Honestly, I think it's much improved and his touch too.

I like Sexton, but....

I'm rather tired of the growing trend to measure of how exciting/great a player is by looking just at shooting.

Since Sexton shot 40% from 3 on 4.1 attempts per game in his rookie season in the NBA, I think people should be very careful about tinkering with his form -- whatever it is, it seems to be working.

As for measuring how good a player is by looking at shooting, it's not the result of nothingness, it's because there is a shot on the court that gives 50% more points than any other shot, which has significantly unbalanced the game, and people are rightly very concerned with how good a player is at that shot.

Also, the main things that get left out when you look at just shooting are 1) passing/playmaking, and 2) defense. Since I think it's pretty clear that Sexton is at best a work in progress in both of those areas, if not actively bad, there is going to be a lot of focus on his shooting.
