    yaknow when PJ first got here he seemed to shoot a lot more. I know he does all the little things on the court but I’m surprised he doesn’t shoot more considering he usually knocks em down. He’s very selective with his shots which isn’t bad but I wish he would shoot as much as he did when the season started

    Yep he has not hit when he first got here he was jacking up threes left and right.

    I mean I’m glad he isn’t taking forced shots but wish he would get a few more buckets

    PJ was barely shooting when the season started tho

    shot attempts his first 15 games: 9, 3, 6, 6, 4, 10, 3, 6, 4, 5, 2, 7, 8, 7, 1

    to me, it looks like he isn't good at the corner three but he seems to hit them better at the right of the top of the three point line

    Shooting is too much cardio, he won’t remain thicccccc.

    If our 4’s are covered they are doing their job. If the defense sag off => take more shots

    I felt like he scored more. Maybe he was more efficient overall

    He's a bad shooter, that's why.

    In playoffs, it'll be 4 on 5 with him. We'll need him to stay near the bucket.

    I wish he would use his girth more in the paint to score..

    He’s reslly not that big in general, he’s an oversized SG/SF that plays SF and PF

    He's the same size as Bonzi Wells and almost as quick. He can bully most these bigs in the paint cuz they're all length and no thickness.

    his overall impact is great, but offensively he's very limited. cannot finish well in the paint with the lack of hops and is woeful in transition. so i don't want him shooting more

    I'm more worried that he can't jump at all. After last night, I'm convinced Anderson can dunk more often than PJ Tucker.

    He always gets mad but also very apologetic when he misses shots/defensive responsibilities.

    That had nothing to do with him shooting more or less but just felt like it added value to the thread
