His point is that if a player only attempts threes, he can hit 33% of his shots and still net the same points as a 50% shooter whose attempts all occur inside the arc.So if his toes are an inch past the arc his chances of making the shot shoot up to 50%?
Talking heads love to focus on player's shortcomings and predict poor results...glad to see Rip on a contending team...now I have to add the Bulls & Clips as teams to cheer for!the espn analyst said hamilton isn't a good fit because most of the highlights show him hitting mid range jumpers and the Bulls need a 2G who can hit the 3. he's a career 35% 3 point shooter. not sure how many of his shots are from out there but how about doing that kind of homework instead of saying he's not a good match because of 20 seconds of highlights?
He's not a good 3-point shooter, but he's decent enough. Certainly better from long range than the rest of the trash the Bulls were throwing out there at SG last season (aside from Korver, but he's a liability at everything BUT shooting).
That's a ridiculous reason to say he isn't a good fit for the Bulls, though. He has an excellent mid-range/finesse game that should complement Rose's power drives to the basket quite well. Oh, and did I mention he's about a thousand times better than what the Bulls had at 2G last year?
Solid move for both parties.
