But as we all know he just doesn't.

Even when Bosh was here & he would kick out of double teams, Jose passed up shots & passed to team mates.

Surprised KG is that high. Damn, I knew he had a good mid-range game for a big but apparently he has one of the best out of any position.

And lol, poor DeMar.

Have we ever played Calderon at the 2 spot for any length of time?

also, amir, maxiell and noah are all better long 2 shooters than bargnani
so those rankings are not that meaningful since shot selection and difficulty of the shot don't come into account.

jose is a very safe shooter, he doesn't take bad shots and chooses his spots very carefully, so his percentages are higher.

I agree Moremillk, the rankings are somewhat meaningless as the consistency in the type of the two-point shot being taken changes drastically from player to player.

you would need to somehow correlate long 2s attempted and success rate, and that still wouldn't take into account contested or non-contested.

long twos are the least effective shot in the game. If you take it you bail out the defense. If you make it counts for nothing.
Play high picknroll with Bosh and both you and him will take many long 2s
