    I know he’s been struggling shooting the rock at times, but I feel like I want to see CP3 shoot the ball more often. Sometimes he’s so concerned about being playmaker, he’s passing up wide open shots. I feel like he’s due for a 25/30 point game, and we can definitely use that on the road. Be aggressive, Point God!

    Something is off, he doesn't look confident at all in the 3. He's passed up wide open looks. He seems comfortable with a contested mid range shot over an open 3.

    Agreed. He needs to let it fly when he’s wide open or drive the lane. His midrange is much better than his 3, though. I realize MDA wants him to shoot the 3 but if it’s not working then he should pull up for the midrange jumper instead.

    I totally agree. It's been infuriating to see him pump fake his defender (AI typically) back into position because of a hesitation to pull the trigger on an open 3.

    It may be just me but it looks like CP has been conserving himself. Maybe for good reason, because he saw what happened to us last year without him in the final 2 games... but it just doesn't look as if he's overexerting himself.

    Maybe half a CP3 is better than no CP3 whatsoever, but I trust his instincts and as long as we keep winning I am good with the results of his current contributions.

    He needs to be aggressive and look more for his shot.

    I trust his contested mid range jumper a hell of a lot more than I trust some of the other shots we jack up.
