call all destroyer, Thursday, 13 December 2018 04:13 (sixteen hours ago) Permalink

Totally right – he's never been an outside threat. But! He's improved every season, and I have to think that he'd relied on his driving game for most of his basketball-playing life. It'd be a struggle to get back up to 30s% this season, but it's still early. It's clear that everyone understands that Bucks' potential rests in Giannis' ability to shoot from outside, and they're willing to let him shoot ~10% after 30 games to force it to happen.

brons been a pretty dece shooter for a while except that one season like 3 years ago where he cldnt hit one shot in which i suspect his back was just fd up

lag∞n, Thursday, 13 December 2018 04:15 (sixteen hours ago) Permalink

it’d for sure be impossible for giannis to bring his season mark up to 30%, as he’d have to shoot >40% the rest of the way

Want Giannis and Simmons to max out their potential - would make both teams so much more exciting if both players didn't have crippling deficiencies. Again, it's cool that Bucks are giving Giannis leeway to fail; sucks to watch Simmons basically concede this whole year, esp. since 76ers would immediately become a legit team if he could score in the midrange at all.

xp I mean it's not looking great, but he's 2.5apg, so if he did decently on 4apg, he could maybe bring it up. Probably not going to happen for him this year! I think they'd just like him to hit a 35% clip at some point this season - the hope is that they're emphasizing some kind of consistency with his jumper, even if he's fucking it up now. See how it develops!

lag∞n, Thursday, 13 December 2018 04:43 (sixteen hours ago) Permalink

So I guess Giannis did do a big jumper reformation going into this season. I haven't really paid attention to whether it's looking any worse this season, but it would make sense that his massive dip is him just trying something radically new (esp. if it was instituted right when Bud came in).

76ers have some things to figure out for sure. Jimmy injury just delays that.

Kings v wolves was probably a fun watch 141-130. Bogdanovic has been really great since he came back from injury. Makes them that much better. Would be cool if they find a way to make the playoffs in place of, say... the rockets.

re lebrons shooting
http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/25513076/three-point-revolution-lebron-noticed

While James will never be a marksman of Curry's caliber -- who has never shot less than 41 percent from 3-point territory and is currently hitting 49 percent this season, James is hitting a respectable 37.1 percent this season (up from a career average of 34.4) on the highest volume of his career. That's better than the likes of J.J. Redick, Dame Lillard, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant.

It's OK that James will never wrest the unofficial title of "Greatest Shooter Ever to Live" from Curry (although he is, surprisingly, second in all-time for playoff 3-pointers behind only Curry), just as Curry will never receive the same credit for his passing or overall command of a game on both ends that James does.

But James has entered into a realm of respectability from the outside that is a far cry from his reputation.

тпсбlack (Spottie), Thursday, 13 December 2018 16:51 (four hours ago) Permalink

He's a decent shooter. Which is what makes his relatively low FT% head-scratching. It's gotten worse over the years!

free throws are almost like putting though, sort of different mental element to it compared to shooting in the flow of a game

yeah i agree with m@tt... bron's mechanics always kinda come and go (bron watchers in the media have talked about this for years obv) and there's a lot more time to think when you're at the line

J0rdan S., Thursday, 13 December 2018 18:06 (two hours ago) Permalink

plus i think it's the same wrt putting where once you start having a problem with it, you start thinking about having a problem with it, which makes the problem worse which makes you think about it more which makes the problem worse

actually that's just more like life in general

i also feel like lebron doesn't really give a fuck about like 90% of what happens in any given regular season game at any point... when he "needs" to make FTs he doesn't seem to miss them at any higher of a rate than any other player who isn't an auto 90% FT shooter

thing about brons shot is he makes as many as he does on talent not having good consistent form and its hard to talent in the high % of fts u need to theyre really unforgiving

Dinwiddie on how he got hot: “If I hit two 3s in a row, I feel like Steph. So I hit a couple 3s, boy, I’m telling you, I felt like I was 6-3 and light-skinned. I wasn’t going to stop shooting after that.” #Nets
