Ben was standing on his new contract.

No way. Most contracts aren’t even an inch thick.

Giannis shot 25% from 3 last year at 3 attempts per game. He would have qualified bottom of the NBA if not for the fact he failed to qualify by making 82 shots for the year (He made 52 from 203) (Worst was Westbrook with 29%).

I know Ben refused to even take them in the past... but surely he could not be any worse than Giannis with the same amount of attempts this year. I reckon half of RealGM could do better than Giannis... and the world cup is showing not much has changed.

I don't think it's much of a stretch to think that the guy who refuses to take threes because of his goofy form is going to be a worse three point shooter than Giannis.

You vastly overestimate the skill of the average Joe, and have a skewed perception of how difficult three point shooting is for non-shooters...even non-shooters who play in the NBA.

1) Ben could absolutely shoot worse than 25%. I'd bet the house on it, in fact
2) There is zero chance that any poster on this board could shoot 25% over the course of an actual NBA season. Zero.
