I've always wondered what goes on when players take corner 3s right in front of the opposing bench. How do they concentrate with the other team yelling who knows what as they try and focus on a big shot? What are they yelling?
Whatever happens, we can be sure that Quentin Richardson of the Orlando Magic is one of the best at doing whatever they do. With Danny Green lining up an open 3, Richardson springs off the bench to run behind him and yell directly at him. And when Green misses? Richardson celebrates like he just came up with a big defensive stop.
I guess this is just a "doing the little things" type of play. We need a new advanced stat in basketball for bench production while not playing. Because Richardson would have a pretty good CSOTBR (Contested Shot On The Bench Rating).
