He seems to shoot a TON of mid range stuff. So is everyone at the moment. Should just be attacking the rim constantly. Dish or get fouled.

I'm grateful for these mid range shots. It takes more skill to get a good shot off in the midrange than it does hoisting 3's. This 3 point analytic era is a snooze fest. I appreciate the art of the midrange.

It’s pretty and artful, but is it as efficient?

The math is simple, but he needs to shoot 50% on those shots to reach the efficiency of a 33.3% 3PT shooter.

Don't get me wrong, i totally get the efficiency+math aspect of shooting 3's. The 3 point shot is worth more than 2. However, this is sports and** ultimately the goal of sports is to entertain the viewers. **Would i rather have 32 highly efficient, high scoring teams, or 32 low efficient, lower scoring, but entertaining to watch teams? I would take the latter.

Herm disagrees.
