What is a shooter? Someone who shoots the ball.

What is volume? A large quantity of something.

Put the two together....

Stop giving the man inaccurate definitions. You dont have to shoot sub-.400 to be called a volume shooter. And you don't have to be a "streaky chucker" either.

A volume shooter is simply someone who shoots a lot. If you pass him the ball, that thing is going up.

the "Volume shooter" name is usually given to players who shoot a lot but doesn't make his shots that much....that's why i said that volume shooters are guys who score a lot but only because they shoot a lot

I always thought it was someone who was really streaky.
They hit 5 straight then miss 5 straight.

Ray Allen makes more threes than anyone in the league. He also attempts more threes than anyone in the league. Sure he can do some other things well, but his jumpshot is his money, so he shoots it a lot. By defnition, he is a volume shooter.

The literal definition=/= the actual definition.

It's used when talking about X who's gone 2/11 in the first half for 4 points. Some other ******* will say: "yes, but X is a volume shooter." Meaning a streaky chucker who's scores a lot points on low % and sporadically.

Volume shooters shoot the ball in bunches. They are confident in their shot so they take a lot of low-percentage shots. They're the same guy going 6 for 6 from downtown one night and 0-6 the next. Jamal Crawford is a volume shooter. Antoine Walker (not so much for the Heat, but for the Hawks and Celtics? Hell yes) is a volume shooter. Hell, you can even say Gilbert Arenas is a volume shooter.

Taken From Another site (I won't mention any names) A "Shoot first, ask questions later" type shooter. Walker was used as the definition of a volume shooter.
