Default Mr. Chuck Award Goes To?

Who's the chucker of the year (well half-year)?
My candidates:

-Michael Redd
-Kevin Durant
-Baron Davis
-Ben Gordon
-Jason Richardson
-Stephen Jackson
-Paul Pierce
-Kobe Bryant
-Allen Iverson
-Rafer Alston

Who wins the award?
It's gotta be 1a. Michael Redd and 1b. Kevin Durant this year for me.

Ben Gordon, he just chucks up the shots. No contest...and I've seen most of the Bull's games.

In order:
-Kevin Durant
-Rafer Alston
-Michael Redd
-Ben Gordon
-Jason Richardson
-Stephen Jackson

I don't consider Kobe or PP to be chuckers. They both chuck but their game isn't defined by chucking. Baron Davis and Iverson come close to chuckers with all the bad shots they take, but they also add a lot more to the game and only chuck sometimes so I'm taking them off as well.

Exactly. What's a rookie doing chucking? I've seen games when Durant continually chucks when Wally's like 11-12 from the field or something. Durant's way too confident in himself. He needs to learn some humility and team play.

Kobe would easily be right near the top of this list if this was the first year of the league's existence and nobody knew who anyone was. Only reason he's not there is because compared to previous years, what he's doing now is absolutely nothing.

From what I've seen, I'd definitely agree on Redd and Durant on a consistent basis.

KD wins, probably average around 18-20 shots per game and only shooting 40%. He forced too many shots but as their 1st scoring option, it's not surprising he gets that many shots.

See, I think chucking and ball hogging are different. I mean, I hate a black hole as much as the next guy, but a block hole is miles better than a chucker. A chucker, in my mind at least, throws up jumpers that don't have a high success rate. I actually think a chucker could be defined as an inefficient black hole. A guy who not only hogs the ball and takes a lot of shots, but makes matters worse by missing those shots the majority of the time.

That might just be my definition though.
