Default Artest's shot selection

just talkn here but artest looks to be taking and missing alot of shots which could obviously hurt your team. Am I the only one seeing this or have you guys recognized that as well. does it concern you guys?

It was actually like that last season too. He only shot 38% from the field and 30% from three. He takes a lot of bad shots early in the clock, he should post up, or slash and try to get to the basket, and draw fouls, no one can stop 260lbs running at you without fouling.

He's playing in a new offense but yeah his shot selection kind of sucks. He's streaky from the perimeter. His game is really posting up, slashing, fade away Jumpers, but he had a sore back tonight so I don't really blame him tonight. When he gets used to shooting them in a game again he'll be fine. He probably wants to really work on his J in game situations before the season, and I think that when the regular season rolls around he'll be a bit more selective and controlled. He could be a 20-25 PPG scorer if he kept driving/posting/shooting mid range Js, but he always falls in love with the 3 ball Oh well Mike Bibby's J wasn't falling for part of last year either and he ended up fine. I think Ron will be fine.

Ron is jus using pre-season to devlop a mid range game thats all...and by the looks of it MUSS told him he wants him to shoot....shoot shoot this game.....muss wants to either prove a point to artest...or either see where he wants artest on the court more....i think when the season starts..muss will tweak the system a lil more to have martin take artest shoots he got...and jus use artest to free lance on the post up....

Yeah dude...Ron's shot selection has been very horrible. He just needs to see it go in then he'll have some steam in them, but I agree with Brad, his game is posting and slashing.

he has proven he has that shot, that shot made him an all-star that year. Anyways, yeah he needs to start getting to the basket more instead of launching threes, it might even be the new basketball...effects some players more than it effects others.
