How do really long fingers affect playing ability?

Not sure what a pick and roll is? Don't know what skill sets work bets for a point guard? Confused on why mustard is such a big deal? This is for you.

Free throws, ball handling, that sort of thing?

I don't think it has much of an effect. Your shot will be a little different, as the ball has to roll off your long fingers.

I'd say it could negatively affect free throw percentage, but that has more to do with size of hands (think Shaq tossing a basketball like a tennis ball at the hoop) than it does fingers. Maybe you can do some really graceful looking finger-rolls.

Okay. Because Joseph Davis has them--which is the reason he underwent a MAJOR physical exam before being drafted (he was determined NOT to have Marfan Syndrome).

Is there going to be any story about his reaction to being bought out from the league? Given that he didn't make a very good impression in the little time he was there, that unfortunately might be it for him...

*Looks for the post that says that.* And the darn forum won't let me search for "Joseph Davis".

It was announced on Twitter and the change was reflected on the SAS WikiFBA page also (and the WikiFBA's Transcations page)

Yeah, I read that shortly afterwards. He's posted a tweet about it, but I'll have to work out a story.
