Having Nash on the team is going to help him a lot. He's always had to be the one who created shots both for himself and his teammates. Hes actually got someone who can create shots for him.

I say he shoots 47-48%

Hell he'd shoot that if he just stopped taking end of the quarter/half desperation heaves. He gives away 2 impossible to make, fg% buster shots a game on those alone. But one thing I've learned watching him play for a decade and a half... He does not care about his fg%

if he averages above 25ppg, 41%
if he averages around 23-22ppg, legit shot to hit 45%!

41% is more likely

Depends on how he plays tbh. If he stubbornly insists on playing like last year, he could shoot like he did last year again. If he really buys into letting Nash run the offense and takes a somewhat reduced role, he could set a career high in FG%. I think during his prime Kobe had a few years shooting about 47%, which is damn good for a player who shoots as much as he does. I'll play it safe and say Kobe shoots right around his career average of .453

Kobe could shoot anywhere from 40-50%. It all depends on how well he and Nash get together on the court. If he shoots 40% Dwight Howard is going to average 18 boards a game with 6 or 7 being offensive lol. I would like to see him average close to 50% though because that's always been my biggest problem with his game.

People don't realize how many times Kobe had to take bailout shots because the offense was so stagnant. The team would waste time and give it to Kobe last second to pull off a miracle.

so in this thread we've learned that Kobe is just a dumb volume scorer that won't shoot above 40% and will not even score 25 points/game while doing so...

okay

Kobe fg% doesn't really measure his effectiveness as a player, if he stopped shooting from isos so much he could easily boost to the 50% range. If there was ever a year it would be this year now that he has the best playmaker in the league handling the ball.
