WATCH: Coach Tab Baldwin sinks trick shot a la Steph Curry
Aside from possessing a brilliant basketball mind, Tab Baldwin looks quite the marksman as well.
The Ateneo Blue Eagle’s head honcho shared a couple of videos of himself messing around after practice and draining jump shots from way beyond the playing area.
Proving it was no fluke, the 58-year-old former Gilas head coach sank another ridiculously long shot just outside the gym’s exit door—much like ritual of two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry.
“Having some fun with my team after practice the other day and showing them the benefits of using a heavy basketball for training wrist strength,” Baldwin captioned his post.
The elite basketball tactician even credited his father for his impressive range.
“It’s been 40 years since dear old dad made us do 5 mins a day, EVERY DAY during the BK days. The definition of muscle memory…haha,” he wrote. Khristian Ibarrola
