They are both shooting 33% from the corner 3. The only spot Felton is beating Rondo is above the break, where it's 41% to Rondo's 23%.
Oh on top of all that, Felton has a higher usage rate than Rondo which means he is holding onto the ball WAAAAAAY too much. Basically all my complaints are visible in the stats. He's a blackhole, with little court vision, and a chucker.
Yea but let's use common sense here. We watch the games. Felton is a better shooter than Rondo...and I'm not referring to points in the paint. Those are layups, floaters etc. I'm talking about jumpshots. Rondo is shooting 24% from 3. Felton is just under 40%.
