I started trying to do this hips leading my weight shift and pulling my extended disc forward first, followed by arm but I'm thinking that is how I may have injured myself...my right ribs and below my shoulder bland in my back have been hurting for a few weeks. Amazing how painful rib pain can be, I'm assuming it is intercostal strain and slowly getting better.

But in the Wiggins video you linked he also said at one point you are pulling through at the same time https://youtu.be/ywEyfD1zTtQ?t=667 and that certainly makes more sense to me...the weight shift, hips rotation, and arm pulling through straight are in sync at the same time.

I started my path on improving my throw this spring by watching a ton of youtube videos, and came to a similar conclusion as the OP and you have said in this thread ... that I need to tailor bits and pieces of them to my abilities. I think I need to now start working down the long list of links in the instructional videos sticky here as well to add to my thought process.
I broke 3 ribs last year in an accident, not fun and not the first time either. I'm not understanding your description of things. Everything should move in one fluid motion from the ground up and there will be some lag.
