NBA Role: shooter UnderDOG

Luke Babbitt’s a pseudo-deadeye-hitman butttt he doesn’t jump when he shoots, like ever; a one-dimensional set shooter who loves taking corner threes, you know what you’re getting from Babbitt every time he steps on the court; can’t really defend quicker forwards, rarely puts the ball down and attacks hard – if you’re looking for a multi-faceted 3, look again; knows what’ll keep getting him checks: cashing treys via spot ups – Luke’s important to maintaining MIA’s optimal floor spacing; the type of player to carry his team to an upset victory after they’re already eliminated from playoff contention; increased role in MIA – Spoelstra’s sniper?; Luke’s hair is something

Signature Shot: set shot 3
