0-3 feet: Top 81.9%
3-10: Top 50.5%
10-16: Top 9.7%
16-3p: Top 56.1%
3p: Top 36.6%

He's actually shooting worse from 0-3 feet this season (55.6%) than he did last season (58.8).

If he stopped going for tomahawk jams then his at rim % could probably jump 10 points. Lol.

:D I know it's a joke but yes.

I think he has missed 3 drunks but, had he made them, his percentage from 0-3 feet would jump by 8.2%, from 55.6% to 63.8%. In a league context that's top 81.9% to top 60.5%. So, make those dunks and move from horrible to below-average around the rim.
