That theory is not a good match to the stats. He took more 3s in NY than he did in Chicago, in totals and rates alike.
Indeed, he's already had more attempts in Boston this season than he had in Chicago this season, although both those numbers truly are small.
If you take the largest sample there is, as in all of the shots he's taken in his career, he is a bad shooter. If you want to take players and cherry pick 100 shot samples, you end up doing silly things like drafting Aaron Nesmith at 14.
Do you think a guy's shooting percentages are influenced by his team, teammates, or role?
