However, I question whether Ricky does everything well. Perhaps so, but I have noticed a tendency for him not to get set on some perimeter shots. When he does this his percentage is zero. Maybe this is because of his injury, but I doubt it.
You are right abut Ricky shooting perimeter shots sometimes without getting his feet set. I noticed it last year in a scrimmage. It is either a habit or just not getting into a good rhythm. Montgomery has talked about him not yet being in rhythm. The injury may make it harder for him to get into a rhythm. Still, I've seen him make a number of perimeter shots in games and scrimmages. In the summer league, he shot around 50% from three, but only took a couple of threes per game. Montgomery, Crabbe, and Thurman have all said that when Kreklow gets going, he can really light it up. He is not going to put up 30 points like Crabbe can do, because he is usually looking first to make an assist, and second, for his own shot. He has a point guard mentality. His stroke is good, and I'm sure the coaches are working on his footwork for perimeter shots.
