Thats the huge problem with JR.

He could be the best shooter in this league in that capacity.

Instead, he doesn't just go to the corner or anywhere on the floor and spot up and knock down 3's. JR always is looking to make the tough shot and rely on his athletic ability, instead of doing the most simple things like just catching & shooting the ball. This is why I think he's going to be a better/more valuable player when he's over 30 then in his "prime" right now at 26. Once his legs go, he'll have to compensate for it to keep his career afloat.
