Mitch Creek, Joey Wright and Training
I have to say I am a huge fan of Mitch and he is absolutely one of our most exciting players.
He has a huge hole in his game while he still visibly lacks confidence to take and make shots from range. He even hesitates at mid range shots and passes rather than taking the responsibility of shooting when he is open. He is often open because defenders know that he wont shoot so they give themselves space to close out his predictable drive.
We have all seen during the course of Mitch's development that at times he has shot sweetly and has a beautiful action and with proper attention from a good coach and a little extra work he could be our best and most pure shooter from range.
So why isn't he?
Does he put enough time into shooting at training.
Does Joey have no interest in pushing his development.
Does he lack passion to do the extra work.
He could be so much more if he was always a threat from range.
Darryl "Iceman" Pearce was asked how became so good a shooter and he basically said he did a lot of extra training and when he thought he was ready he did even more in his own time. He had the will and passion.
I believe Mitch has all he needs in talent so how could Joey help him regain his shooting confidence to the benefit of all?
Don't doubt me, I love the man he brings so many highlights to the game. I would just love to see him regain the confidence to take those outside shots!!
