A. He's been really bad at them (7-24, 29.1%)
B. That is the shot he takes the most of all shot types.
He's been a great FT shooter and he's now up to 70% FG at the rim and 50% FG from 10-16 feet on short jump shots. He either has to make the adjustment that teams are conceding a shot he hasn't shown the ability to make and stop taking so many or quickly try and figure out a way to make more of them.
Last night he was 5-9 on non floaters and 5-6 on non floaters inside the arc.
I believe the 3PT shooting is going to come around eventually. Guys who are 90% from the line and don't have any noticeable flaws or hitches in their jumper aren't going to shoot 17% from three for the season. Just aren't.
I feel the same, i notice the uncontested floaters go in fine though it's the ones he's forcing with a defender on his side that throws him off.....Right now he's in the middle of figuring out what works and what doesn't, i'm not really worried about the shooting...like you said he's like high 80's or 90% from the line on a good amount of attempts.....Too good for me to believe he just can't shoot, occam's razor it's more like he's just in a funk....His size out there does hurt him but his athleticism helps a lot with that imo, when his body fills out more i think he's going to be a fine finisher.....I just want him to be more of a floor general and help run the team and get others into a better rhythm...
Spacing is really important, it's not a surprise he did his best work with a floor spacer to work off of as i really liked the actions with him and bamba....Either way i think throwing cole into the fire is going to be good for him....I think you can grow just as much on the court playing against comp as you would working on your game in the off-season
