Wouldnt' you like to see both options in use at the same time??? I sure would.
My point is we should be taking more of those wide open ones... we take a lot more forced shots in general and the overall shooting percentage is down.
I could give you this argument: kapono last year played with the greatest slasher of them all, d-wade. He shot 49% from 3pt. This year, he's playing with Jose, and he's shooting 50%. His shooting percentage didn't drop, ergo he gets just as many good looks as he did last year. So then what's the point of your argument? There are more than one way to get a 3pt shooter a good look. Driving and kicking is just one of them.
