How do the best players break a shooting slump? Ask Lethal Shooter

What should you do when you can’t hit the broadside of a barn with your shot some days? Chris Matthews, also known as “Lethal Shooter,” has the answer. In a recent interview with the folks behind the Heat Check YouTube channel, Matthews breaks down how he helps Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown and the rest of the NBA’s best players work through a shooting slump.

He also explains the importance of tailoring workouts to individual players based on their playing style and system.  The interview also touches on Matthews’ own basketball skills, where he modestly describes himself as a catch-and-shoot player. Lethal Shooter notes that in today’s NBA, shooters who create their shots, like Damian Lillard and Stephen Curry, are considered the best.
