I never understand what really defines a 'sharp shooter'.
All five of our starters are capable of shooting the three at 40% or better, and they probably will be by the end of the season.
Korver is maybe slightly better percentage-wise? But he's more of a one-dimensional player.
Ray Allen is a sharp shooter for example.
I use this comparision to point out the difference between a Jaylen Brown shooting a high percentage , and a real spot up shooter like Ray Allen.
Ray Allen was a spot up shooter but could also drive to the basket , just like Jaylen can.
Problem is that Ray Allen is a true spot up shooter, no hesitation wide open not wide open jump shot maker.
The Jaylen Browns and Taytum are rythym guys, they wont shoot "spot" up shooter shots, they hesistate , they make worse decisions like moving in for jumpers or stepping back etc. Real spot up shooters catch and shoot, either off the pick , or finding a spot and getting the ball.
This team can continue to trot out Brown, Taytum and Hayward, but im telling you as a long time fan of basketball,
This will not hold up. One of them will go, or maybe even two , for a big time big man.
For the time being , one of these guys should become a spot up shooter, because the chemistry , the style of play, and the number of shots are far in between. One guy would need to become a spot up shooter in order to balance this out, or we will have a lot of unhappy players, especially Hayward then going to Brown. Tatum would be the least because he knows hes starting out.
