Lonzo Ball has a career-season with the New Orleans Pelicans getting more efficient in his shooting habits, especially from deep.

Lonzo has changed his shooting form this season ripping the “fruits” of his decision by hitting three-point shots on a 38% clip from the arc.

LaVar Ball shared his opinion on his son shooting form explaining why he didn’t encourage Lonzo to change his shooting style earlier.

“Lonzo started on the right side and then somehow he started doing the stepback and it went to the left and he was knocking that stepback down,” LaVar said on on the Road Trippin’ podcast with Richard Jefferson, Channing Frye and Allie Cliffton.

“So he’s doing this on the left side and he’s being productive. My thing is this. Do you want a guy who has perfect form and missing every shot or do you want a guy who is shooting raggedy as hell but makes shots. Here’s the thing I always told my boys: Perfect your shot.

Your shot is the best shot however you perfect your shot. If you’re doing it with the repetitions and that thing is successful going in, leave it at that. Lonzo put it back on the other side and now he’s making some other shots. But as for the reason, if you have somebody believe in you and you shoot a certain way man and that ball going in, they’re not going to say nothing.”

Ball had a great year until the NBA break in March, averaging 12.4 points, 7.0 assists and 6.2 rebounds per contest. He also had his best season in his career shooting-wise putting up 41% of his shots from the field.
