PJ Hairston & three-pointers have a rocky relationship: on one hand, he loves letting it go but on the other, he doesn’t see any better option; Hairston’s a bit of a conundrum – strong two-guard who could easily barrel through guys coming off curls with a beat to the basket…but instead of capitalizing, PJ will float on the perimeter waiting patiently for a kickoff; doesn’t post up or fight for boards as often as he should – once he puts an emphasis on these two areas, only then will he reach his potential; sometimes an overconfident shooter – Hairston needs to dig deep and drive the lane to avoid becoming predictable – has enough body mass and creativity to turn into a Bonzi Wells-esque finisher; decptively athletic; drafted straight outta the D-League (2014)
