Yannick had told the New York broadcasters an interesting story I hadn't heard before about Joakim, that he ended up shooting that odd sideways rotation shot because when he was small, he insisted on only shooting threes. I knew the three would eventually ruin young basketball players. But young Joakim couldn't reach the rim. So he put both hands around the ball and spun it up. And never stopped.So no one in the next 20 years told him that was bad form and tried to teach him how to shoot the correct way? Noah is such a moron

According to his father, former tennis star Yannick Noah, there is a different explanation:
all the time sometimes all the time.
