Romeo Langford: Shot Form Assessment

Summary

Langford has several issues with his shooting form. It begins with his base, which is sometimes out of alignment and his knees tend to move inward which saps power from the shot. While his elbow angle is generally 90 degrees, he shoots it from his forehead which brings negative motion into the shot and can lead to a flatter arc. However, this does make his shot more difficult to contest from in front (but easier from behind). He also has some elbow flare, and a tendency to flick the ball with his guide hand’s thumb. All of this adds up to impact his distance control and touch significantly, with a tendency to miss short. While some of his issues may be fixable, the combination of issues makes it unlikely he will find consistency from beyond the arc anytime soon.
