"@chadfordinsider: This Wizards-Hornets trade screams Bradley Beal at No. 3. Adding Okafor & Ariza should eliminate TRob & MKG"

A John Wall and Bradley Beal backcourt is going to be awesome

Whats up with Ariza I thought he was a good player with the Lakers but now he's been traded like 3 times since he left.

I thought he struggled last year, didn't he get benched a couple times?
Either way, he's not worth his contract. 7 mill a year for the next 2 years
Deron Williams has narrowed his choice between 2 teams.

Dallas n Brooklyn.

Next 3 I think.
Not NBA related, but perhaps a little interesting. I've been shot charting over this summer by shot distance for the guys on my team, as I'm going to be really emphasizing that we don't want to be shooting from mid-range and want to have some empirical evidence to reinforce the point for each guy. Here are the results so far, through about 4 days of scrimmages...

<5 feet...............................98-164 (1.20 Points Per Shot)

<5 feet to three point line.....25-125 (0.40 Points Per Shot)

3 Point Range......................32-99 (0.97 Points Per Shot)


I'm trying to team them the hierarchy of shot attempts, which is Free Throws>Shots Around the Rim>Spot Up 3's>Pull Up 3's>Anything Mid Range.

rip hamilton would not like you as coach.

Haha. Well, the NBA's a little different, in that the defenses are so good that mid-range is often the only thing that's open, and the offensive players are so good that they can hit that on a regular basis. If he was one of my players, he'd have the green light to shoot mid-range because he's good at it.

That said, even the NBA numbers are interesting...

At rim = 62.6%
3-9 feet = 37.6%
10-15 feet = 38.3%
15-23 feet = 38.1%

Three Pointers = 52.3% (eFG, due to the extra point)

makes sense. more congestion and less ground to cover to D up inside the 3 point line.
