Default Gilbert Arenas is the least efficient 20 point scorer in the NBA

Shooting just below 42% from the field. Dude takes 8 3-point attempts a game and shoots 35% on them. Why doesn't he cut back on the long range bombs and take it to the rack more if he's one of the fastest players in the league?

Worse than T-Mac? At least Arenas goes to the line a lot which should put him above T-Mac efficiency wise.

Well, T-Mac does play about 5 min less a game and only puts up 4 less points a game.

He's just not all that smart of a basketball player.

But why did you bother making this thread? It's not exactly some obscure fact that you've brought up, and it's been discussed plenty of times before.

And Tracy is worse. That is completely indeniable. Let's look at the stats.

Gilbert shoots 1% worse from the field.
Gilbert shoots 2% better from three.
Gilbert shoots 0.4 more shots per game.
Gilbert shoots 14% better from the FT line.

And, Gilbert scores 4.4 more points per game.

And yet, he still manages to put up only 0.4 less shots per game as Gilbert, WITH THE BEST CENTER IN THE LEAGUE ON HIS TEAM. Sorry, had to emphasize that point. Who's the bigger chucker?

I would think you would have to only use the stats from when TMac actually played with Yao. How many games have they actually played together this year? 30?

Yao's still been there for a lot of games. Caron and Jamison have missed games as well, likely forcing Gil to take more shots during those stretches, increasing his average.

shooting 35% from 3 is like shooting 52.5% from 2. it's not a bad number.

8 attempts as a 35% shooter isn't a great number.

Default Re: Gilbert Arenas is the least efficient 20 point scorer in the NBA

making 35% of 8 attempts of 3's = 8.4 points

if he took 8 attempts of 2's, it would be equivalent of making 52.5% to get an EV of 8.4 points.

mathematically, it's not a bad statistic.

In Arena's defense, he doesnt have a 7 foot low post Center. In Mcgrady's defense, he shoots some really tough shots.

Arenas is definitely not as good as he think he is.
However, he is better than Kobe.

35% from 3s is not all that bad. I think its about average.
