Year-over-year change in the share of shots coming from three or at the rim

That game was happening simultaneously with the game where curry eclipsed 400 3s in a season. It was truly a thrilling night for basketball.

ilh should go in for a shared sportsreference account or something

just turned 22 a few months ago, you have to assume he's gonna be one of these guys who works on his game and adds something every offseason. never want to count your chickens but he is definitely on track for a LeBron-esque career

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Friday, 28 May 2021 17:14 (three months ago) link

yeah the things hes done at his age are not normal, theyre not normal for any age!

lag∞n, Friday, 28 May 2021 17:27 (three months ago) link

It’s weird, before he came into the league, I thought luka would be more of a conventional wing and that his lack of elite running & jumping athleticism might limit him. but watching him now it feels like he’s really a big, high-scoring point guard and his skills are perfectly suited to it

circles, Friday, 28 May 2021 18:12 (three months ago) link

hes such an unusual player as far as how he gets his points, he uses his great first step to get to the second level then kind of bullies and hesitates his way around until he hits any number of weird touch shots or perfect passes, his 3pt game is a little more in line with your elite high usage guys as far as a lot of dribbling leading into stepbacks and so forth

lag∞n, Friday, 28 May 2021 18:20 (three months ago) link

feel like i should mention his crossover too which is great and key to all this stuff

lag∞n, Friday, 28 May 2021 18:21 (three months ago) link

like that shot chart hes just scoring from all over the paint who does that

lag∞n, Friday, 28 May 2021 18:32 (three months ago) link

getting middle so constantly like that makes his passing work too

lag∞n, Friday, 28 May 2021 18:33 (three months ago) link

Luka now has 4 career 40 point playoff games. That’s the same as:

Melo, Duncan, Dame, Kawhi, Karl Malone had in their careers.

It’s more than:
Kyrie, Pierce, AD, Ewing, Moses, Giannis, Isiah has in their careers.

He’s 22 years old and has played 11 career playoff games.

— nick wright (@getnickwright) June 3, 2021



With his next 40 point playoff game, Luka will move into a tie for 20th ALL TIME. He’ll tie Barkley, Bird, Havlicek, McAdoo, Petit & Dominique.

We are watching a true phenomenon.

ICMYI: I watched all of Curry's and Doncic's regular season 3PAs to see how accurate the NBA's shot type classifications are

tl;dr: Missed step backs are regularly recorded as missed jump shots resulting in inflated 3P% on step back attemptshttps://t.co/K8jyf5j9Cs pic.twitter.com/EatISv1OHY

that image is wacky and reminds you of just how good dirk was

The game has changed, dirk shoulda shot more threes honestly. Kinda surprised cP hasn’t taken one of those spots from dirk, or derozan

pure rim rest (Spottie), Wednesday, 25 August 2021 05:37 (three weeks ago) link

at the time a lot of people myself included thought he should be taking more threes but the thing about dirks midrange was he could just get a good look from there all the time, prob one of the more reliable plays ever

lag∞n, Wednesday, 25 August 2021 15:00 (three weeks ago) link

Oh yeah that shot was automatic I don’t think a ton more threes just avg like 1-2 more per game and he prob woulda won some scoring titles

pure rim rest (Spottie), Wednesday, 25 August 2021 15:44 (three weeks ago) link

the #7 and #8 seeds are 0-32 in series and 41-144 (.222) in games.

hes so much better at shooting it puts him in the conversation for best offensive player ever

buddy hield kind of an insane shooter. he must be bad at everything else & unlikable

J0rdan S., Thursday, 9 September 2021 15:51 (one week ago) link

yeah i think thats pretty much it

lag∞n, Thursday, 9 September 2021 15:54 (one week ago) link

this graph lays it out pretty well but i think in the last 2-3 seasons the tiers of NBA shooting are basically

[in his own stratosphere]

steph

...

dame
james harden

...

duncan robinson
buddy hield
joe harris

...

tim hardaway jr
devonte graham

klay would be the missing link here, we'll see how he looks. trae young was fighting to get in this group somewhere but was 32nd in 3PA this year and 45th in 3P made (behind ppl like kyle kuzma, mike conley, andrew wiggins, brandon ingram) so he's changed his game up, prob for the better ultimately. he also doesn't have the volume from three but anecdotally i'd prob throw middleton in this group, he should shoot more threes

J0rdan S., Thursday, 9 September 2021 16:03 (one week ago) link

Obviously we can only speculate on what Klay will look like but based on his track record pre-injury he's sort of in his own tier, more efficient than Dame/Harden and more volume than the Joe Harrises of the world. Maybe that would put him at #2, though I'd probably slot him in between Dame and Harden given how much he has benefited from his context playing off Steph. And yeah, Steph really is amazing. So happy we got to see him back to himself this past year.

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Thursday, 9 September 2021 16:14 (one week ago) link

yeah guys who create their own shots have to go ahead of spot up shooters like klay, klay is the best spot up shooter tho

lag∞n, Thursday, 9 September 2021 16:20 (one week ago) link

harden is frustrating cause hes such a great shooter but insists on taking only the most difficult shots

lag∞n, Thursday, 9 September 2021 16:20 (one week ago) link

Harden basically breaks the algorithm, even now with however many years to imitate his thing, no one really plays like him. I'm not complaining. Glad Trae has shifted to a different track

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Thursday, 9 September 2021 17:05 (one week ago) link

klay in his own tier for spot up shooter yeah

creators:

steph >>>>>>> Dame >> Harden >>> PG >> lavine > tatum >>>> fvv > trae > luka > mitchell > middleton >>> rozier > graham > beal > kemba

spot up:

klay >>> hield >> harris > d rob >> bertans > bojan

-harris kinda capped since hes on a team with 3 insane scorers, but he'd be up there otherwise.
-Ingles has been amazing but not enough shot attempts really
-JJ woulda been in that bottom list easily but finally got old and dropped off last season
-we might have to add lonzo ball to this at some point lol
-kat needs to shoot more threes?
-cj belongs on one of these lists but not sure which one, he spots up and creates?

a talented ‘Rebel’ with Balls (Spottie), Thursday, 9 September 2021 17:16 (one week ago) link

you cannot put lavine ahead of tatum on that list sorry i simply will not allow it

its gotta be, at least somewhat

a talented ‘Rebel’ with Balls (Spottie), Thursday, 9 September 2021 18:11 (one week ago) link

oh yeah i misread that still much better than hes ever done before

lag∞n, Thursday, 9 September 2021 18:12 (one week ago) link

wow the offensive numbers are really identical. but once you look at defense even the numbers make it clear they're not the same tier of player (not to mention "playoffs" lol)

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Thursday, 9 September 2021 18:31 (one week ago) link

yeah the defense makes a major difference. both need to keep improving their passing

a talented ‘Rebel’ with Balls (Spottie), Thursday, 9 September 2021 18:41 (one week ago) link

feel like even tho their reg season numbers are the same tatums game is just so much more sound, and has more room to grow

lag∞n, Thursday, 9 September 2021 18:46 (one week ago) link

and yeah the defense is obvs wildly different

lag∞n, Thursday, 9 September 2021 18:47 (one week ago) link

def more room to grow, other than that step backwards in year two when he was briefly enamored with kobe hero ball, he's been on a pretty consistent upward trajectory. lavine's career looks more like a plateau with an outlier this past year. but like you said, if he can sustain what he did this year, good on him

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Thursday, 9 September 2021 18:57 (one week ago) link

yah tatum has the 'it' factor.

lots of talking heads were excited about lavines team usa showing thinking it might springboard him into being a sound defender. would be cool but i have doubts.
