The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

if that 3pt % can hover around 40%, it drastically changes his ceiling. he still seems more comfortable with the ball in the hand, running almost a point-forward type of position, but his handles aren't quite where they need to be right now to do it consistently.

I'm thinking these teams are still working on old scouting reports on the players we do have. they haven't taken into account Ish Smith's consistency, among others

 

old man bonga is fun to watch. not sure what he turns into, but he's got something in him

Kutcher can't be out here dropping "backbreaker". that was a Buck call, let the legend live

 

 

its weird, but it feels like as Beal has become a better overall scorer, his shooting has gotten worse.

Beal's 3pt shooting percentages:

 

16-17: 40.4 on 7.2 attempts

17-18: 37.5 on 6.5 attempts

18-19: 35.1 on 7.3 attempts 

Current season: 30.6 on 8.1 attempts 

 

Not a good trend. He's damn good scorer these days, but his 3pt shot is leaving him.

Thought we played well yesterday - we just ran into a freakin' buzz saw in the Jazz.

 

 

 

One thing I've noticed through the years is that the Jazz almost ALWAYS trounce us by at least 20 points. They are one of those teams that we just never even get close to. Last night was an improvement. We hung tough until late.

his %assisted on three point makes has dropped in each year according to basketball reference.

.803

.784

.716

Current season .684

 

That could mean he’s simply missing assisted three attempts, but it probably means he’s shooting more threes off the bounce and less spot up.

Just from the eye test, i dont think he's taking bad 3pt shots. He's just missing good looks/opportunities. I'm not sure if that concerns me more or less

 

I need to check the numbers to see if it lines up to what i'm seeing.

Legs get more tired when you are using more possessions and creating off the dribble more.

So this is an interesting starting 5...

 

brooks just be throwing darts and where they land, is who he starts

 

its a good way to inflate the bench scoring numbers though

 

 

IT leaving his feet to contest a 30ft Lavine 3pt shot, only to watch as he blows by him on the way to a dunk, kinda sums up this version of the IT experience

White's going to be a good one.  He's got an unconventional dribble drive game that's hard to predict, and he's aggressive.  Tall for his position too.  Looks like a volume scorer once he gets more fluid with the catch and shoot game and extends his range to the NBA line.

 

Way to help AP out when he got the rebound in the middle of four red jerseys guys.  Stood there with their dicks in their hands as he's pivoting around like a windmill.
