I looked this up a while ago, and Kobe attempts like .3 of those shots a game. It's a complete myth that he attempts 2 of those a game, do you honestly think he's shooting like 50% on "real" 3 point attempts?

Edit: Just looked it up on bball reference, Kobe attempted a whopping 8 shots outside of 30 feet last season. If you get inside 30 feet, the shot is plenty makeable.

I don't think you understand that Kobe's jump shot especially his long jump shot has regressed big time. He really cannot make the 3 point shot consistently anymore because of his age/knee.

He relies way too much on his lift in his jump shot which is why his jump shot has regressed so bad.

Wait Wait... Are you not the same guy who said FG% is a useless stat and that Ts should be the only stat used to judge players?

Bryant has been both the primary scorer & the primary playmaker for the Lakers, especially in the Triangle offense, both Jordan's and Pippen's roles.

Due to this burden, & since Bryant lost a step and athleticism declined a bit, he shot 43%, the worst since his first two years.

Now Howard controls the boards, and runs the floor while Nash runs the break, Bryant will revert back to scorer role of Jordan.

No longer will Bryant have to stay in the backcourt to handle the ball, he can just run up court, beat the defense, and set up in the high post/low post for great shot opportunities.

This is the first time in Bryant's career that he'll get post feeds from a bona fide playmaker, and he won't have to work so hard to create off the dribble or end up with forced shots to beat the shotclock.

If Bryant was in his prime, young and athletic, I would say 50%. Since he is 34, I predict 45 to 46%.

Nash can make Jason Richardson look elite. Kobe should should 50% this year if hes really a "top 10 player".

45-47% I'd say. I don't see him shooting under 44 this year, unless he just chucks with no regard, which I doubt will happen.
