Of course I dont want Felton to take 30 shots or more shots than Melo but if others are not going to shoot someone has to. You see the games you know these guys are getting the touches but they wont shoot and their strengths are not creating there own shots.
Problem is, a lot of fans gauge their support for a player's shooting on whether the shots go in. If a player takes 5 shots and misses them all, I don't get mad if it's a shot they're used to making. If Novak is missing open 3's, while he's in the game, he should still shoot them. It's up to Woodson to sit him down.
