Default T.Jose Caldesports: What else makes Jack a unique player?

Good read and interesting.

Answer: His "triple threat." Of the seven players listed above, Jack and Chris Paul were the only ones who balanced their skill at the two-point jumper with a willingness to score inside (both with 26% of their attempts coming in the paint). But Paul can't match Jack's ability to shoot from three-point land and that is where Jack's uniqueness is revealed. Only a few dozen players in the NBA satisfy what I will call the triple-threat qualification: A minimum of 25% of their shot attempts must come from each of three-point land, two-point jumpers, and inside.

This should identify players who have some of the most balanced offensive games in the league. However, it's one thing to take your shots from all over the court, making said shots is the true test. Baron Davis (37% FG), Stephen Jackson (41%), and Ron Artest (40%) are just a few examples of players who qualify for the "triple threat" designation but don't connect at a very high percentage, meaning them shooting from all over the court is probably more of a threat to their own team.

With that in mind, here are the leaders in field-goal percentage last season among players who qualified as "triple threats":

1. Mike Miller .482
2. Jason Richardson .477
3. Paul Pierce .457
4. Eric Gordon .456
5. Manu Ginobili .454
6. Jarrett Jack .453
*minimum 2000 minutes played

the article is comparing a very specific stat not overall play... JJ is among the league best at being threat inside, mid-range and outside and all of that is needed by this team!
