Left-handed Greg Monroe actually right-handed

Watch Greg Monroe play basketball, and, although he uses both hands effectively, he’s very clearly left-handed. Except he’s not. Monroe, via Pistons.com (hat tip: Detroit Free Press):

When I first learned how to shoot, my father just told me to shoot with my left hand, and ever since then, I’ve just been a left-handed shooter.

That’s the way I’ve been playing my whole life. I didn’t realize it until I was older. When he was teaching me how to shoot, I was a really young kid. So I didn’t realize that I was actually right-handed. It’s worked out for me so far. I just got to continue to get better with both hands.

    Makes sense; I’d been  thinking that Monroe has the best combined right and left hook shots since Magic Johnson.
