Draft night

Bob and his wife, Connie, spent draft night at the center with other Celtic employees. Fisher said watching the draft was interesting.

Bob Fisher, Centralia, has evolved from showman to instructor when it comes to free-throw shooting.

Fisher’s “Secrets of Shooting,” which was published in Aug. 2018, drew the attention of head assistant coach Jay Larranga with the Boston Celtics. Larranga brought his 13-year-old son, James, to visit Fisher in June. The two men visited about Fisher’s studies and methodology. Larranga took notes. Later, Fisher demonstrated his shooting skills for James and then instructed him on technique.
