Landry Shamet’s career-high 30-point explosion against the Heat on Sunday night marked the endpoint of an incredible turnaround this season. The former Wichita State guard was brought to the Nets by Sean Marks for his lethal three point shooting, but when he played his first couple of games with the team in December, he just could not get it going. He shot only 25% from downtown. Miraculously, now in April, the 24-year-old is shooting over 50% from three and it suddenly all makes sense why Marks pulled the trigger to get Shamet.

A day before the Brooklyn Nets’ game against the Chicago Bulls on April 4th, Shamet had some time to speak to the media. When asked about what advice he would give himself when he was slumping in December, he said he’d tell himself “it’s never as bad as it may seem – if you continue to do whatever it is that you’re doing, good things find you. Stick with that.”

Shamet added that a big reason of why he was stuck in that slump was because he would talk “himself into a weird place.” It’s good to see now that he has found a better place for himself mentally, and the results are obvious.
