Gigi Datome attempts to channel Sherman Douglas with floater, fails miserably

When you miss as badly as this, I guess you're required to out yourself on twitter for it. Was he too open? Was he aiming for the front rim with the soft touch? Did he fear the wrath of Grievis Vasquez? Is he just that awful at shooting the floater? So many questions.

Atleast he was honest enough to have a good laugh about it post game. Maybe Gigi should see if he can get ahold of former Boston Celtics point guard and master of the floater, Sherman Douglas, because that shot needs help.

It's also possible Datome may have been trying to emulate his new teammate and NBA Sixth Man candidate, Isaiah Thomas, who has also been known to be quite crafty with lofting up the floater.
