melo really needs to shoot over 49 from that close.

Yeah,he needs to get better at finishing at the rim.
He doesn't get as many calls as he should get so that's also ruining his percentage. It's tougher to make a layup when you're fouled.

Skim review:
Harden has pattern of trying to score on layups or threes primarily. He's shooting worst % on threes, though. Nobody shooting corner threes (not spacers?). Lebron's layups are deadly. Bryant and Durant scores in the paint more than others. Um.


I like that scoring is down, numbers less inflated.

If Melo starts hitting those bunnies, he could see a spike in his numbers.

According to those stats Lebron is only 2nd to Harden in terms of % of shots taken at the rim, but he is dead last in free throw attempts at 5.7 per game. That's the fewest amount of attempts in his career. I haven't seen many Heat games this season. Can anyone explain why he's not getting to the line as much as he has in past seasons?

Lebron becoming deadly at shooting 3s....

kobe, melo and durant are probably the most versatile elite scorers because their mid range game...

He gets hacked like crazy. That's why all the fuss started that he wasn't getting calls.

For the most part, he's avoiding contact like the Black Plague this season, probably due to his piss poor 64% FT shooting. The refs have also let a let a lot of contact go on Lebron this year, there have been plenty of times where replays show blatant fouls that were uncalled.

Yep, Westbrook and Lebron are outside Top 10 in free throw attempts, which is ****in retarded for the 2 most athletic and explosive players in the league.

LeBron has an absolutely absurd finishing rate...

Re: League's Top 5 Scorers Shooting Analysis
 
Y'know what I find simply amazing?

All current stats by the time this is posted from basketball reference:
Wade is shooting 39.6% from 16 ft to 3-pt.
http://www.basketball-reference.com/...shooting/2013/


LeBron is shooting 37.9% from 16 ft to 3-pt.
http://www.basketball-reference.com/...shooting/2013/

THAT is stunning to me. It does not seem that Wade jumper is that good at all, and LeBron is that bad. Granted, LeBron took more shots, but not that much. And before the Knicks game, Wade's jumper at the 16ft to 3pt must have been around 40%. He has sucked hard from the 10-15 ft though. So, his overall jumper sucks.

If you get fouled on a lay up it goes against you as a missed FGA?
