Of course, this is nothing new. NBA players have abstained from long-distance heaves for years. Watch closely throughout the course of a season and you’ll notice many players just happen to routinely release shots a split second after the buzzer. Sometimes they double clutch, giving the clock just enough time to expire before launching. Sometimes they take an extra dribble, giving the impression they’re trying to get closer or evade a defender. No matter the preferred method, the goal is the same — protect your shooting percentage. “Some people care about their percentage, and that’s why they release after the buzzer,” Bulls center Robin Lopez said. “They don’t want to mess up their 3-point percentage,” Bobby Portis added.
