Kyle Korver

Kyle Korver (CLE) – “Threezus” nike

cavsShooting Guard/Small Forward: 6’7, 212 lbs; 15th year, Creighton

NBA Role: sharpshooter Salty DOG

Off the hop, after a screen, blindfolded, in a house, with a mouse, on a plane, on a train…if you give Kyle Korver space from beyond the arc, it’s an automatic three points; one of the best shooters the game has to offer – Korver moves extremely well without the ball, keeps defenders chasing around screens 24/7 – finds minuscule seams to brush off guys for clean looks; Korver is every post player’s/penetrator’s best friend – gets plenty of clean looks running next to Bron & Kyrie; furthest thing from a ‘me-first’ player: Korver spaces the floor, understands the concept of team Dand is an undervalued passer; 2015 All-STAH; CLE relies heavily upon on KK’s outside shooting in unit #2

*I mean, this is a textbook ‘get back’ in transition!
