    Larry's release point created spacing in and of itself. It's amazing even
    watching the way he used his body to feel the opposing player and then to
    get just enough spacing to get his shot of clean. Obviously there are
    differences in the games of Kobe, Michael and Bird but there are some
    similarities. The simple clean ways that these players created spacing for
    the mid range game and the way that they used this to set up so many other
    things. Bird would use the step through the pump fake or the step back to
    score off the simple jump shot.
