JR Smith has made more extras passes this year than in his entire career combined for wide open 3s, when hes had the opportunity to take his usual semi contested 3s, and he instinctively passes it to his teammate for an even better look. This definitely comes from Kidd.
And Kidd may be the best 3 point shooter in the NBA right now. He has absolutely no hesitation when hes wide open, and his shot is pure.
Pretty disgusting that you have him, Melo, Smith AND Novak all on that squad.
Talk about deadly from deep.
