so? he's only shot 13 of them. he's going inside the arc, thats why he's so efficient. If Kobe followed suit he'd be shooting 50% too.

It's extremely easy to look this up, you know.

And yeah, like others have said, he's atrocious from distance so he cut it from his game and has hardly been shooting them.

Kobe likely wouldn't be shooting 50% if he only shot from inside, though. Not sure what made the guy say that.

Why is it a big surprise when he took only 12 or 13 shots so far from beyond the arc? He decided to actually focus on being efficient rather chucking shots after shots and shooting 43% and leading the league in FGA.

Well, ofcouse you would start a thread on this considering your post on the other thread:


Wade and James NEED to always be on top. They are butt buddies, look at them....joined at the hip.


Most people hate Lebron, I hate Wade. I dunno what it is, he just got super cocky once Bosh and LBJ came to South Beach. He's a jerk and an attention whore but never gets the press for it since everyone is on LBJ's jock 24/7.

Wade has become probably my least favorite player in the league and this has nothing he did tonight. Just another form that he has to be on top and doesn't want to be shown up at all costs.


No wonder why someone would start another pointless Wade thread.

Sorry, it's late where I live and I read through everything without remembering who was saying what. Apologies if I offended.

I looked at this years numbers before I posted and he's at .474 from two pointers.
For his career he's at .482 from two pointers.

I'm not sure how comparing his numbers to Wade's is relevant. If anything two pointers would become harder if you cut threes completely, because defenses don't have to cover the three as much. Just because Wade adjusted and brought his two point percentage up in no way means Kobe could've done it. It's possible, sure, but it certainly isn't close to the point where you can just claim it would happen.
Also not sure why career numbers are more relevant than this year's, either - your statement was pretty clearly in the present tense.

bholly
02-27-2012, 05:59 AM
I also just checked Wade's career numbers and he's at .508 from two - so he didn't bring his two point percentage up at all. Relevant or not, the comparison doesn't support the argument that Kobe could do it.

They had Deron and Melo on the floor...

the play had to have been drawn up for one of them.

As far as Wade's lack of 3pt FGs, it is a complete non issue now but may become a problem when the officiating loosens up in the playoffs and he cant get to the line as much.

Of course, the could go with a LBJ, Wade, Bosh, Chalmers, Miller lineup down the stretch against most teams.

Lol seriously... Kobe had Shaq in his prime and then Bynum/Gasol.. A good supporting cast. Does it take away from Kobe being one of the best ever? No.

NO player has done it alone.. So the guy makes no sense... Kobe, Wade, Shaq, Duncan... all the great players needed a supporting cast to win. The league is too good for one player by himself to win a championship.

I really wish I didn't open up this thread. ugh...


LeBron is having statistically one of the 5 or so best seasons ever, and a lot of that is because of how improved his shot selection has been. Wade has done the same thing, and it's improved his game. He's having an amazing season too. It's wise for both of them to limit their threes. If Rose and Kobe improved their shot selections like these two, their efficiency would sky-rocket. It's not a bad thing, not at all.

Trying to knock him because of anything he's done this year is hilarious.

Wow, you are ridiculous. Melo and Wade shouldn't even be compared to each other. Wade has a championship so the comparison ends right there. In the playoffs and especially the finals, Wade carried that team. Shaq was already on the decline. Wade had to have one of the best finals performances in history to bring home the championship.

This same argument that you're making could be said for someone like Kobe too. When he won the first 3 championships, he had Shaq who was still in his prime. Then when Shaq left, the Lakers struggled. It wasn't until the Lakers brought in Pau Gasol that they won the next 2 championships.

this basically explains why wade has abandoned the 3 this year...

http://www.nba.com/heat/news/project_postup_dwyane_wade_120229.html

its really a great read and even if you don't like wade it should appeal to basketball fans. wade will work on his outside shooting game more as he gets older but the first step was the post and hes leading the league in post up efficiency right now. in 08 he only had 15 possessions in the post all year. hes really worked on this and its paying off. this season over 13% of his shots are in the post and hes making over half of them after only using 6% of his possessions in the post from 09-11.

its pretty obvious that with only 13 3pt shots attempted hes decided the heat don't need that from him right now with miller/chalmers/battier/jones(when he plays)/lebron and even cole all capable from out there. hes just doing whats best for the team and while 1/13 is a brutal percentage its a pretty small sample size. he'll develop the 3pt shot a littler more as he gets older just like hes doing now with his post game.
