Best when it comes to finishing at the rim, but has the least amount of drives so doesn’t get there enough.

Paging DY Nasty. DY Nasty to centre stage please...

im not crazy i promise :lol:

Spoiler:
its still mindboggling how devonte is a starting, volume shooting PG and he's completely adverse to driving despite how often he has the ball


its obvious that miles is modeling his game after old and busted draymond and its just an awful, awful decision imo. dude needs to stop thinking so much and start launching himself at the rim. his tov% is still higher than his usg% too.

And yet he hits the tin more often than our Uber athlete

Turrible x2

I think Miles is a much better shooter from deep. Especially at the same age.

I'm aware.

Miles throws his left leg in front of his shots sometimes. Whatever works I guess.

miles' feet bother me so much on his 3s now... he's hitting, but then again no defender is ever gonna chase him out there really. its still continuing to drop from that 40% clip from earlier in the year like I said it would but i'm not out to bash dude. i don't think miles does anything better than hendo outside of the 3 ball but that's really more of henderson just refusing to adapt as the nba evolved. hell, the guy shot 35% from 3 on his way out i think but he just never took those shots.

i just don't even know what he intends to contribute with his game anymore. it doesn't add up. he works harder to get in the paint and throw bullet passes to biyombo than he does to get easy buckets that are *always* there. even if his handle stays trash, he should be our most active offball player on offense.

and its all in his head but something just isn't clicking. usually when players have a good game, they go back and look for ways to repeat success. simplified, but that's kinnnnnnda how it goes.

the things that miles consistently repeats have NOTHING to do with his best games lol

It's 10% FGA, meaning 10% of his attempts are at the rim.

Bridges reminds me of a kid I knew in middle school who was just bigger and stronger than the other kids but so much wanted to fit in or please the coach, so he deferred as a rule rather than the exception. His tough talk was more to mirror what others were saying in the locker room than from some bombastic personality. He went on to play D1A at App State because he was just so dang big and athletic, but he never exerted himself and remained a bench guy his whole college career. Miles Bridges reminds me of that kid.

Need a stat on players with the lowest percentage of their shots at the rim. 10% is mind boggling, but can't be the lowest.

I bet there are a bunch of them. Guys like: Buddy Hield, Duncan Robinson, Eric Gordon, Davis Bertans, Patty Mills, Wayne Ellington, Ben McLemore, JJ Redick - those types of dudes.

Devonte actually has the 13th lowest % in the league: https://www.nba.com/stats/players/shots-general/?Season=2020-21&SeasonType=Regular%20Season&GeneralRange=Less%20Than%2010%20ft&sort=FG2A_FREQUENCY&dir=-1

I mean he's smaller, skinnier, and not very athletic. Doesn't really seem to fit logic to have him play like Westbrook

being that low? he's going out of his way to avoid part of the job description of being a starting PG

I'm hoping that with so many of our scorers out, Miles will get more aggressive and stay that way.

Miles should average at least 6-7 FT attempts per game. He doesn't need to dribble well, just bulldoze himself to the rim.

He has shot 68 FT's the entire season. He has 63 offensive rebounds, as a comparison. He has more turnovers than FT's too, 79.

I got in trouble when this happened because apparently I yelled so loud that it scared the dog.
