Default The evolution in Carmelo's offensive game...

'Melo has been a straight KILLER from 3-point land.

He's always been a very good shooter from mid-range...but now he's become a marksmen from deep. That shot just looks so pure right now.

Seeing as his uptick in 3-point shooting occured right as he joined the Knicks, maybe D'Antoni deserves a little credit after all.

He could always make that shot.

1. He's taking a career high, which actually will make his percentage better. As opposed top taking 3 and making 1

2. This system and his teammates give him good looks.

He can't finish at the rim though. He kind'a sucks there in comparison to everything else. He was never an amazing finisher, which is surprising.

He is only shooting 51.4% from inside this year (not counting tonight's game):

It's really crazy that it's that low. If he average 60% at least, he would be a more unstoppable player. I disagree with ppl on the media saying he is the best scorer in the game where he isn't more efficient or averaging more points than players like Durant, Kobe, or LBJ.

But this year, he is killer with his jumpshot. More than usual. His 10-15 is more efficient than ever before. He always been great with the 16-3pt ft. And he is shooting a career high from 3.

This is just his worst year. I'm sure he'll get better. He is pretty much a killer everywhere on the floor this year except under 9 ft and under.
