The shimmy is actually how DeRozan shook Derrick Rose to score the game-winning jump shot against the Knicks this season.
Which, by the way, is almost identical to the game-winner Bryant hit against the Bucks in 2009.
It goes back to Bryant’s idea of being predictable. Even though defenders know DeRozan prefers to shoot over his right shoulder, they have to respect his ability to turn over his left shoulder because he’s proven he can knock them down. Doing so, however, leaves them vulnerable to him creating the slither of space he needs to get off a shot.
Limited Womens Tyler Bozak Jersey Williams is clearly an upgrade over Brewer, so it comes as no surprise the Rockets needed to include a first-round pick to make the trade happen. It’s not a huge loss for the Rockets, though, because they’re better off having Williams down the stretch the stretch of this season and all of next season than another draft pick. D’Antoni has been dealing with a 10-man rotation anyway — one which includes three players they’ve drafted since 2014 — and Williams will take over all of Brewer’s minutes moving forward.

Look at the Wizards, they were kind of on the same wave as us. Didn’t even make the playoffs while we did. Now this year they’re the second-best team in the East. The adversity made them better. It can make us better, too. What I come from and my background made me who I am. As comfortable as I am with the good times, I’m also comfortable in adversity. Yeah, I might feel some type of way when somebody comes for me or says my name. But when it’s all said and done, it ain’t gonna rock me.
