The game of basketball benefits those with the capability to catch and shoot from long range. With the insane success of Warriors’ Steph Curry, it’s crystal clear just how far an exceptional shooting prowess can take an athlete.

When Anthony Edwards exposed his fandom for Steph Curry

Recently, Ant Man was at the gym, practicing his mid-range shooting, isolation moves, and pick & rolls. But he was not alone in the facility as it also had Celtics’ Jaylen Brown working out with him.

In a training sequence, Jaylen was working on his long-range shots when Ant Man decided to shoot a video. The 20-YO, while shooting the clip, yelled, “c’mon bro I ain’t shooting from Steph Curry range.” However, a laser-focused Jaylen kept dropping daggers one after the other. Take a look – 

Well, Jaylen hides the capability to drop not just those 28-ft shots but also the logo threes that Damian Lillard has made popular. And as far as the trademark Steph Curry shots go, both Anthony and Jaylen would dream to come near that.

Well, for one, it shows how Anthony Edwards is picking brains from his senior in Jaylen Brown. Secondly, it’s Ant Man’s inclination towards three-point shooting, which he attempted at an average of 7.2 per game in his rookie season. The fans must remember how the Timberwolves’ treasure labeled his shot over LeBron James as his career highlight.

Secondly, it’s that Jaylen Brown is finally back after his unfortunate injury during the 2020-21 season. Both Jaylen and Jayson Tatum had accidentally collided during their regular-season game against the Blazers. Post that, Brown had undergone wrist surgery, forcing him out of the playoff series against the Nets.
