Not most of his points but great deal of them, true, come from spot up and pick and pop. At beginning of the season, he was making 47% of his midrange jumpers which was enough to be, considering the volume, the best midrange shooter in the league, alongside Paul George. But he really struggles with it lately and is making below 30% of those. I assume you have watched the highlights of Brooklyn game where he closed the game with and was making those down the stretch. But he wasn't making them in first 3 quarters and still missed a lot of them.
He manages to get himself free coz of various factors, not because he's great at making himself free, only. I am not saying that he's bad at it. Just that he's not the best in league.

nah... they give him the shot all game.

they are worried about him driving or the lob to deandre, and CP and Redick's outside shooting ability. Most D's are designed to give Blake a free mid-ranger.


That said he's become incredibly proficient at it.

best mid-range shooters in NBA are Dirk and KD. They'r also excellent long range threats but yeah.

Per bball-reference:

Blake is 41.5% from 10-16 feet, and 41.6% frm 16-23 feet
KD is 53.8% from 10-16 feet, 46% from 16-23 feet
Dirk is 51.7% and 43%

Obviously they all have specific spots they prefer, and context of look (shot clock, pressure of defender) matters. But yeah in terms of getting a clean good look out of mid-range w/ a high % chance of going in Dirk and KD are best

Those 2 are definitely better than Blake at it. Around the league, Chris Paul was considered as the best midrange shooter, if we aren't going for bigs only. I don't consider KD as a big. Paul struggles this season because of his broken finger, I am talking about last 5-6 seasons. While KD and Dirk have better precentages, you have to take that column before it into consideration since it gives the frequency or the % of midrange jumpers of all shots the player takes. KD obviously sets for far less mid range jumpers than Dirk and CP3 so I'd eliminate him from further discussion. It's not that he couldn't be better than them at it if he wanted but why settle for midrange dribble pull ups when you can do the same from 3 pt range, right? Same goes for Curry, it's just not the big part of their game and rightfully so.
So that leaves us with CP3 and Dirk. Dirk has superior frequency and % by little margin. But like 50% of Dirk's 2pt fga are assisted while that number is far far less in CP3's case since he's midrange attempts are dribble pull ups which are hardest to make. So I'd vote CP3 as the best midrange shooter but only because other great dribble pull up shooters as curry and KD are not so much perimeter oriented as they are from 3 pt range.

Oh and assisted column shows data for all 2pt attempts, sport VU data on nba.com will provide the assisted % of midrange jumpers only but I don't think that it changes things significantly enough.

cp3 is amazing. So is Curry. So is redick tbh.

But for my money i'm going dirk or KD overanyone in midrange cause of a) how great they shoot and b) length

A huge issue w/ mid-range shot is space to get a good shot off

ok KD is not really a big, and Dirk is playing into the sunset at this point. just for Blake to be in the conversation is an incredible achievement for somebody who people said can only dunk.

btw what the hell is going on with Derrick Rose? he can't possibly fall from grace that much after a solid last season and pretty good playoff performance. it seems like Hoiberg does not want to use him.

I wouldn't call his last season decent nor would I describe his playoff performance as pretty good, since he's making a bit short of 25 million. Yeah, he did make that banked game winner and had a couple of decent games, but he seems done to me. Injuries were brutal, freakish athleticism is long gone, he didn't develop during those years, fear of new injuries is always present, his jumper didn't evolve one bit since he came in league, he's just terrible at creating especially when he can't drive as much as he used to....
I'm afraid there's like 20 better pg s outhere and he plays ok defense. But to me he was always more of an athletic freak than pure skill. All shit that happened to him was just too much. Human body isn't designed for that speed, those 0.7 seconds 360 spin moves, that vertical etc... For what is worth, he was the fastest player I have ever seen by far.

Rose was AWFUL last year. Had a couple big games and majority duds

-

In terms of Rose this year i've actually loved his shot selection (Stopped taking so many long ones, which he's bad at) but he's missing like crazy. He's getting to rim and inside 10-15 way more often but %'s are GROSS (like 41% at rim). I think it's fair to speculate the eye thing is an issue, we'll have to see.

Truth is i don't think we'll ever see him approach 2011 levels again, but he can be better. Somewhere in between. Mercurial. Capable of a big night but not much consistency

The thing with Rose is that although he doesn't have the superhuman athleticism that he used to, he's still one of the fastest players in the NBA, coupled with incredible ball handling. his defense has been great this season, but he seems to be peripheral figure for Hoibergs offense. maybe the injury is still a problem but even with that he shouldn't be this uninfluential.

his defense is bad. That's pretty obvious honestly. He misses rotations and gets beat off the dribble ALL the time.

He should thrive in Hoiberg's o. I do think eye thing is a big problem. He's missing so many bunnies. It's damn hard if you can't see lol

He's a minus defender, nothing special but slightly above average. Bulls do well on defense, they are 2nd or 3rd best at points allowed per possesion. Their offense was 27th at points per possesion last time I checked and offense is where Rose is notoriously bad. He scores 13 ppg on 14.5 fga, true shooting 42%, usage 24.5, it's just terrible. He's not defending in the paint well but that's on his big mans as well. Frequency is ok, he's not allowing too many drives.

funny thing about Rose is he's played well on national tv twice. Only two good games


His days of being a star are over. But I do think eye thing is making him worse too. Probably somewhere in the middle is best case.

Good.... My friend, who is obsessed with Celtics, has a theory..
Ainge is about to trade both Brooklyn picks and various other pieces, one package goes to Knicks for Melo and the other to Memphis for Marc Gasol. He is convinced, considering how good Stevens is, that those moves are east conference finals worthy, and could give LeBron a good scare there... Thoughts?

Hmm, no way ny gives Melo to Boston

He's probably the one guy I'd give up the nets pick for

NY has no chance of making something work around Melo, imo. Brooklyn pick and their own pick equal a solid chance of landing Simmons, on the other side. Considering how good zinger turned out, that would've been an epic rebuild scenario for them. I think they know that there is no chance of them using Melo's window.
Lineup of Melo, Gasol, Crowder, Smart and Bradley would do wonders on what already is a excellent defense. It would be a solid nba offense imo, with Thomas ad league's best sixth man.
DMC is a dominant big, but full of flaws. His game doesn't translate into wins. You have probably already asked yourself how come that someone that good can't get more than 29 wins a season...?
He has his whinny face always on, he's worse than Doc. You don't wanna see that in Celtics jersey.
Conley could flee in terror this summer, and he should. Keeping Marc would have no sense than..
Just a theory, anyway...
