On that we can agree. :D
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season!

Doesn't change the percentages. And at no point did I say I would want him taking it over Booker. Someone said Clarke couldn't keep the defense honest with his 3, and I used facts to disagree.
“Facts”

Lol, you are lying to yourself! 0.4 3PM per game!

Really? Wow. It’s worse than I thought.

I am sure Indy knows what is small sample bias.

The fact is, Clarke mostly shoots his 3s if he is wiiiiiiiide open. His shooting doesn't put very much pressure on defenders.

Wow, I'm surprised Booker's 3pt% is so low. He's basically right on average, both in attempts and %.
But he was a 3pt champion, is money at the line and on tough midrangers. His shot also looks so pretty. What gives?

Sometimes his shot selection is not great. And he is always the focus of defenses.

At least he shoots better from 3 than James Harden.

I'd be interested to see how many of his 3P% are either super early in the shot clock or super late.
Go Suns!

Yeah, that isn't the problem. The issue is that almost 20% of his shots are pull up 3s and he is under 34% on them. Catch and Shoots he is almost 40%.

This is a very good breakdown video of Damian Lillard. I'm only putting it here, because I think that Devin could get to this level and without the limitations that Dame's height causes him that Ben talks about. Also, for all the talk about how bad Devin is on defense, he's already better than Dame is, and in the bubble he was much much better and locked in than he's ever been.

I agree about Devin's defense in the bubble. It wasn't always consistent from play to play, but overall it wasn't god awful, which is a step up.
