If the ball is being smashed down at a fast pace and low angle, such a postion would be useful in a pinch. >it would hinder him more than help him to snap back in another direction quickly
That doesn't matter at all, because he already recieves the ball, preferably to the setter, he would have plenty of time to be ready move to a new position.>and it'd destroy his knees if he did.
Yeah well thats a reason why volleyball players strain their knees, it's sadly too common in the sport.
