Default Why did Kevin Jones' plant food slip to the right?



In this insta-famous shot, why did his plant foot slip to the right? I'm working on my bracing and am trying to shift my weight directly forward into the plant - I've slipped before and my plant foot shoots straight forward. What's up with his mechanics that caused it to go to the right?

edit: I'm a noob and can't figure out how to embed the video, but y'all know the shot.

I think if he slipped a soon as he planted he would shoot straight forward but is looks like he planted then started to rotate before he lost it was more of a spin out than an immediate slip

I'm still trying to figure out a good brace myself, but I'm pretty sure that he slipped after the throw (not during it).

To elaborate: his foot doesn't start to slip until just after the disc is gone. I think that the brace's job is over even before that. So when he slipped, he was no longer bracing, but rather just supporting his bodyweight and based on where his body was in space that support was pushing down and to the right.

Again, I'm still working on this stuff, so maybe someone more knowledgeable can refute or confirm me

I'm not positive, but it appears his foot slips when it rotates onto the wood frame.
