    Atleast fab scored, yeah?

  • Brick James

    Awesome clip. It’s easy to underestimate what Pierce does so well: spacing, using his body, quick hands… things you can’t teach. Yes, he’s got 15 years experience on Fab, but there’s certain things you just can’t teach. Pierce took the kid to school.

      You mean he traveled from one side of the court to the other.

    I really enjoyed watching this. As KGino pointed out, it’s great to see little things like this.

  • Jim

    Even though that was a drill not a 1v1, 2s are still 1 point and 3s are 2 points.

    Important distinction for the future.

  • Green33

    You’re right on Jim. Any game less than a full run is always scored 1’s&2’s.

  • Chuck

    Including layups, KG shoots 20-21 by my count in the background during this video
