Video: Jodie Meeks typically gets to the arena 3 hours before game time

Check out the STAPLES Center floor on a typical game day and you wouldn’t be surprised to find Jodie Meeks the first and only player on the court putting up shot after shot after shot.  Meeks typically arrives at the arena more than three hours prior to tip-off as he works with player development coaches Mark Madsen and Larry Lewis.  If video below does not play, go here.

He first learned his pregame routine from Michael Redd during his rookie season in Milwaukee, who said he learned it from Ray Allen.

“I can focus more to where I’m the only person on the court,” Meeks said. “There’s no other balls flying around and no other distractions so I kind of just lock in and get ready.”

Meeks is in the midst of a career year, averaging 14.6 points on 45.4 percent field goals and 41.0 percent from the three-point line. He currently ranks 11th in the NBA in three-point makes with 103 (as of Jan. 29).
