The hell he's not. He starts, he shoots well over it. That's how it works for every other starter.
He has much more games of experience from bench and he shoots well from there as well. But these two roles aren't the same for many players. I don't expect the numbers to be the same from the starting/bench roles. The proof is there.
Jedzz why make everything into a fight. Beasley had what two or three stretches of starts totaling 33 games. To be a proven 40% 3 point shooter he would have to have done it for 3 or more complete seasons in a row. Could he be? Sure, but that's not proven.
Oh you little instigator you.
Three or more seasons in a row? What kind of crazy are trying to sell here? Go away!
Miami is in the Finals right now because they found two consistent young shooters to add to their vets.
Dunkin Robinson was a rookie playing off bench last season shooting only .286 from 3 when only getting 11 mins a game with only three 3FGA. He starts 68 games this season and his shooting .446 from 3 on over 8 attempts. It's the same kind of thing that happens for Beasley. He gets better the more he's involved. Most players implode when their involvement gets too high. Especially when young. These are the real players that excel with high involvement and will slip into obscurity if they only get minor minutes. Like Beasley. Like JMac. And none of you notice! It's the one thing all teams have to figure out about their individuals on their roster. How to get the best out of them, and is their best worth the minutes, offensive focus, and shots they might need. For some, the answer is hell yes because their efficiency starts to go off charts once involvement reaches a high level.
The only two games Dunkin Robinson's minutes dropped below 15 mins this season, he attempted 7 3FG and made zero. He attempted 9 FG and made 1. This is ludicrously bad compared to his games of 20 minutes or higher shooting 47/45/93 and higher. From 35 attempts 29% in 18-19 to 606 regular season attempts from 3 this seasonor 45%. Do you see yet? This is completely backwards of say, the great Edwards of the draft who loaded up 8 3FGA per game in college for 29%. In the pros, if you can drop him down to 3 to 4 attempts Edwards might, might bring you 33-34%. It's backwards but at least it's easy to figure out. This isn't rocket science but you can't just go off hype and make belief. The question is, if you can only load up 3-4 attempts onto his back is he a positive or a hindrance to your type of offense when it only amounts to 4 pts from 3s and he needs 20 minutes to pull it off. Others can do more with that time in this offense. This should be a major factor in their decisions about picks and then their minute load.
Dunkin Robinson was a 6'7 210 gomer pyle that you guys would have laughed at or ignored anyone suggesting he should be drafted in 2018. He's still only rebounding at a 3/g avg. But he plays 28-30 minutes in the playoffs and the Heat are in the finals for it. Because he took 7 3FGA per game and hit 40% in the playoffs. The Celtics blew them out a couple times because some of these guys aren't all world defenders. But they can shoot with the best of them under duress and that in the end is what matters from their role.
In his second season, Robinson set a Heat franchise record for three-pointers made in a season, and tied the franchise record for most three-pointers in a playoff game. wikipedia

Shove your 3 years of proof you instagating mfalstdkljpufkghlp'aki;sdpefgokrs!n.
These clowns constantly advocate immediate and long term starting for top draft picks for 4 years bricklaying before they would let one real shooter outside the first round help their team for even a year as a starter. Look at the proof staring you in the face. Wake up or shut up and get out of the way.
