Rondo Lacks Confidence in His Shot?
He (Rajon Rondo) spent time a few years ago with marksman Mark Price, and the ex-Cav still gets a look on TV every now and then.
“We definitely saw some improvement when I worked with him initially,” said Price. “Obviously I haven’t been able to follow him on a regular basis, but he came back a couple of times and I felt like we did make some progress.
“But the hard part about that is you’ve got to stick with stuff, and I haven’t been able to follow him that closely.”
Rondo has been stubborn at times over his career with his form, but he is out in the pregame going through a full shooting regimen to find a groove.
“Confidence is a huge thing, no question about it,” Price said. “A guy out there has got to feel confident he can make the shot. If he doesn’t, it’s really hard to be consistent.
“But it’s like, what comes first, the chicken or the egg? Without improving mechanics, can you really get that kind of confidence? And then it just takes a lot of repetition doing things the right way.”
