not necessarily true;

long jumpers can do what they do because of explosiveness off of the inital leap which allows them to extend the length of the "going up" and "coming down"

therefore i'd say hangtime is a combination of the vertical portion of a leap, and the velocity and explosiveness of the horizontal portion

His game is like a mix of Richard Hamilton and Ray Allen. He moves around the court well, is a decent defender, and shoots the 3 ball well.

Yeah. If he has hangtime then it means he's jumping high. You can't have hangtime if you don't jump high.

Are you trying to say that you can't jump and go forward at the say time?

I love it when stupid people try to act smart.

Jumping is basically made up of 2 components: the upward component and the forward component.

Everyone comes down at the same speed once they jump up (gravity), but you're velocity going forward is different based on drag, initial velocity, etc.

What I'm trying to say is K Mart might not jump very high, but he covers a lot of ground.

The Finley comparison isn't bad. My first thought was Rolando Blackman. Ro wasn't much of a dunker, but the rest of his offensive game is very similar.

its still not "hang time". no human can "hang" in the air, whether you're covering a lot of horizontal ground or not you are still either still going up, or you are on your descent. with every jump you spend exactly the same time going up and coming down.

I'd say a cross between Rip Hamilton and Reggie Miller.

So everyone is black?... Does he look like he's black? I'd say more of a mix of different races.

And, it doesn't really matter what race he is in the end. It's not like his game is based on his race.

Also:

"When interviewed on a segment by TNT during a game, Martin credited Doug Christie for helping him learn how to defend in the NBA. Likewise, Martin also credited Cuttino Mobley for helping him with his shooting. Martin played behind both guards during their tenure with the Kings."
