The three pointer has become the most influential and valuable shot in basketball. Kyle Korver is one of the best three point shooters in NBA history, his ability to hit the long shot has earned him the nickname ‘Threezus’.
Korver said that when he was a kid, his mom gave him the following advice on shooting the basketball:
“If you look at the front of the rim, you hit the front of the rim. If you look at the back of the rim, you hit the back of the rim. If you look just over the front of the rim, the ball goes swish.”
The following video is a prime example of how Korver became a fan favorite with ability to get the crowd excited with his sniping prowess. (and if you look closely at the 25 sec mark you will see one of his fans waving a Threezus sign).
Korver has made millions of dollars on his ability to shoot the long shot well, but he has shown that he can also get up for the dunk occasionally, and when he does the crowd goes crazy.
Korver was acquired by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017 and has become a fan favorite. Korver has been a clutch player and often helping the Cav’s win close games and earning him a nickname with Cav’s fans as ‘Mr. Fourth Korver’.
