The rest of the world sees miss after miss, the ball clanging off the rim far more often than it falls through the net these days. But Max Christie still sees promise in his shot. Look closely at the misses in the recent shooting slump of Michigan State’s freshman shooting guard and you’ll see that the shots are mostly missing either long or short, not left or right. For a shooter, that means that mechanics aren’t off and that he’s not far away from draining them. That’s why Christie can speak calmly and confidently about his shooting even amid a slump.
