TYI DIY: The Adams-Tedeschi Shot Doctor Device

From Hanley:

During practice, Noah has a paddle strapped to the outside of his left hand, a device designed by assistant coach Ron Adams and made by team trainer Fred Tedeschi, which the Bulls believe will help fix Noah's less-than-textbook shooting style.

''Coach Adams, we call him the shot doctor,'' Noah said. ''I have a weird release on my jump shot. So he's trying to change my spin. I guess it's just a new method to change it. A lot of coaches have tried different things, but that's definitely the most unique one. We've been working on it all summer.''

TYI's crack team of graphic artists put together a rendering of this device using telepathy, pens, and paper. Halloween is right around the corner.
