No bursting his bubble: Morris hones jumper with gum wrapper

DENVER (AP) Monte Morris restored his long-range jumper to mint condition.

The Great Spearmint Gum Wrapper Experiment worked.

Last summer, the Denver Nuggets backup point guard went through shooting drills with a wrapper from a stick of gum - mostly spearmint, he said - wedged between his thumb and index finger on his guide hand. It was a way to find a more reliable release.
