    I think his assists ability is what will give him a shot in the league.

  • I hope he can play for the Lakers.  However, it is extremely difficult to play in the NBA.  Clearly, he is good enough to play for some European teams.

    I can easily name 10 players that Macon is better than in the league today. It all depends on situation.

    See it so many times in sports as in life.  So much depends on timing and the right situation.  Pulling for this kid.

    I never realized the unorthodox follow thru with his hand, and it's not exactly the same every shot. He could easily be a better shooter, imho.

    Yes he will definitely need to find the right situation. Which is why the Lakers held the workout for him they were not a very good 3 point shooting team. He could fill a need unless they want a bigger guard.

    Yeah...Im sure he is working his shot and his overall game. If there is an opportunity to at least the G-League he will .

    A slight tweak and he could be next level shooting.
    I've enjoyed this game going on 5 decades and I am totally serious when I say my set shot at the age of 55 yrs. is the best it's ever been. Not boasting, just the truth.
  • #17 by HawgnCorona on 22 May 2018
  • LOL!!! I hear you. It was he first part of the game we learned right? A bit beyond you in age I too still lace them up for quick work out. Watching Macon in the mental drill pull on the break an knock those 3 pt shots down(takes me back) those were routine for me...

    In either drill he didnt get as much lift on shots. I dont the context his of his work out so Im in no position to say one way or the other...I just hope he gets to live his dream. Do I think can do it? Yes. But he must put in some work

    I do believe though, he would not have had the opportunity (to work out) had he skipped his Sr Yr...
  • #18 by alohawg on 22 May 2018

    Lol, man oh man.  At my advanced age, I still have a sweet stroke and always have, was taught by a great coach in high school and I never went to college and I wouldn't have been good enough anyway to play ball in college, to slow a foot.   But I always practiced my shot, and it's gotten better as time has gone by, I don't quite have the arc in my shots that I used to, but I still have a good time and I still like playing with the younger generation and seeing them bewildered a little when I get zoned in and I make some money shots here and there on the courtyard, makes this old man feel like a kid again.

    Can you please name them? I really like Macon but your statement is very crazy.

    His only shot is playing in the G league.  He isn't better than Dusty Hannahs

    The look on the faces of the 16-30somethings at the gym when I answer the age question, priceless. I always tell them to just keep playing so long as you're able, no real secrets. I played with many of their dads and uncles who gave it up long ago....
    Rarely do I lose a game of horse or any 3 pt. competition in that gym warming up to play full court. Seems most people don't practice difficult angle 3's off glass, lol. Best part, helping a kid/young man with shooting adjustments and then seeing the improvement.
    I'm only 55, we have a 78 yr. old(inspiration!) who, although he hasn't attempted to play for a while, still has a nice touch off glass from 15'.

    Is Fred Van Vleet a better player? How about Demetrius Jackson? How about Tyler Johnson? I watch players on teams night in and night out that Macon could easily plug and play.

    Same here.  I often wonder why even NBA players today rarely use the glass when shooting 3's, or just when shooting jump shots when at and angle?  You have such a higher % when using the glass, but today it's like if a guy does bank one in, it's called and accident.

    It was the first thing we learned , right!!! I was age 4 when I first pick a BB up. I dont play as much because of time spent doing other stuff, however, I can still swish nets as well, will arc and range. At 60 I can zone in real easy...So Aloha and yourself talk about this stuff I can relate...And that jumper is what we learn first...along with the dribble. You guys (Alohahawg and LAHog) owe me a game, LOL!!! :)

    I suppose that is possible.  However, there are hundred and maybe thousands of really good players like Macon that would love to play in the NBA and get tryouts that any team can select. Out of all those players that get workouts, maybe occasionally one gets selected, but the odds are very low.

  • * Per sources, Hog alum Daryl Macon @_dmacon4 (6-3 CG, LRParkview, Arkansas Hawks) will take part in Priority Sports' Pro Day on Fri, then has at least 3 pre-draft workouts w/NBA tms next wk. Priority Sports also represents Michael Porter Jr., so expecting a gym loaded w/NBA scouts

    https://twitter.com/ARHoopScoop/status/1004762345506246656

    * After tomorrow's Pro Day in Chicago, Daryl Macon @_dmacon4 works out next week with Orlando, Minnesota, & Houston ... gotta say, and this is my opinion, but Macon's skill set and mentality seem a great fit for what the Rockets are doing under Mike D'Antoni ...
