San Antonio Spurs: 4 Bold Predictions For Next Season
Keldon Johnson's shooting will improve for the San Antonio Spurs
Keldon Johnson made some significant strides in his second season. That said, he's struggled to find consistency in his three-point shot since being drafted by the Spurs. Keldon connected on 33.6% of his 2.3 attempts, though his high arcing shot has occasionally led to ugly misses.
Those misses seemingly affecting his confidence as the season progressed, causing him to shoot fewer threes in the second half of the season. Fortunately, he'll have his first full off-season to work on his shot. With guidance from Spurs shooting coach Chip Engelland, he could improve as a shooter next season. Engelland has a long track record of helping Spurs players tweak their shots, often leading to drastic improvement, with the most obvious example probably being Kawhi Leonard.
With increased confidence and a reworked shot, Johnson can more accurately fire away from three in addition to attacking the basket. If his shot does improve, it's entirely possible that Keldon could make a big jump in his third season.
Whether or not these predictions will come true is still very much up in the air. That being said, the 2021-2022 Spurs figure to be a younger and more exciting version of the team we know today.
