Found November 02, 2012 on Project Spurs:
During tonight's Lakers vs. Clippers broadcast on ESPN, Chris Broussard talked about how Clippers center DeAndre Jordan was working on his shooting, and also noted that former San Antonio Spurs forward Bruce Bowen was helping him with mental toughness. According to Broussard, Bowen and Jordan talk regularly as Bowen tries to help make Jordan a more focused and mentally strong player. Jordan has always been an athletic player with the physical gifts to become one of the better centers in the NBA, but his decision-making and focus have never quite been on par with some of the better bigs in the league. If there's anyone that can help Jordan with mental toughness, it's Bowen, who saw the NBA's best offensive players on a nightly basis during his time with the Spurs and was tasked with defending them. Bowen seemed to have a knack for not just stopping players from being as effective offensively, but he also got under their skin and in their heads by always being a step ahead. Jordan seems to have made some improvements in his game since last season which is evident by the double teams he has attracted early on in the season. With Bowen's help and some assistance with his shot mechanics, especially from the free throw line, their may be even more growth and improvement to come for the former Texas A&M center.
