Coach K: Ok, Russell. Remember what we worked on in practice. The most important thing is balance. You need to square your hips and shoulders to the basket, and jump straight up and down. When shooting, bring the ball in front of your forehead. Most importantly, keep your elbow in. Otherwise, you will have no control as to the direction the ball will go once you release. Make sure your left hand is there to aid the ball on the way up, so you don't lose control of it.
Russell Westbrook: HEY-ELL YEAH, COACH!
Coach K: Sure. Close enough.
