This table describes his shooting prowess against >.500 and <.500 teams (as well as rankings according to defensive efficiency.)

If he's good, he's shooting above average in both fg% and treys.

If he's bad, he's shooting abysmally in fg% and slighlty above average for treys. Or he's utterly failing at both.

----------------------------------------------------------

He's good against 13 teams.

He's bad against 15 teams.

Out of the teams i'd expect him to be bad against, he was good in 5 of them.

Out of the teams i'd expect him to be be good against, he was bad in 7 of them.

And these were the teams he was horrific against. Scored less than a 3rd of his shots.

5 teams, you'd expect, because of their defensive prowess. But the remaining 4 teams shouldn't have been such a mess.

If he's not shooting well, how can he make up for his other defensive failings? He's a giant coin flip. Play him 5 minutes. If he's hot, give him more minutes. If not, shut him down!

(This essay assumes that he is a defensive liability due to his age and the fact that I don't like him.)

No cursing in title. No pirated material, such as links to online game streams. Do not cut/paste entire sections of content from other websites. Thanks.
