Dusko Ivanovic vs. Ron Putzi
The Best Display of Shooting I Have Ever Seen.
In 1995, while playing basketball for Fribourg Olympic in Switzerland I was paired-up to run a competitive shooting drill versus my teammate, ex-European Basketball Champion, Dusko Ivanovic.
We ran a common shooting drill. Sprint to half court (after every shot), then run back to the free-throw line to take free-throw line range jump-shot (alternating game-speed jump shots from the left and right side – ‘the junctions’). Each player shot 10 shots then switched.
Dusko Ivanovic shot: 10/10 10/10 10/10 10/10 and 9/10 = 49/50 (not bad)
More precise: Dusko shot 49/49 (100%) then missed his final 50th shot – before getting visibly upset with himself. Again, Dusko sprinting 100%, receiving my pass (it’s all in the pass), then taking a game-speed jump shot only missed his last shot. (Wow!!!)
I lost the shooting drill and ran my set of punishment lines with a smile on my face… and a much better understanding of how Dusko scored 36 points versus the NBA’s Denver Nuggets.
Best display of shooting I have ever seen.
