    Say what you want about EG but he is a consummate professional. Accepts his role and never complains.

    These players are extremely talented you dont want them setting the theory cuz they can do anything.

    For KD almost any shot is a good shot of course limiting mid range is dumb to him he can hit those in his sleep. Lebron is the same dude transformed himself into a shooter and spacer he is now a better shooter than Kobe ever was. You dont make this theory for Lebron and KD or other superstars you make them for the Danuel Houses and other average joes in the NBA.

    Iggy is a mid range lifer obv he will defend the way he scores. He didnt really take 3s till he went to GSW.

    Durant is one of the best mid rang shooters ever. Like EVER. Like he might be the best. Lebron went Morey ball last year. He took way less mid range attempts and took more layups and threes. Popavich.....well, I mean....the Spurs are looking great.

    The crazy thing about that 65-win season was that scary 5-game losing streak right before new year. Things were looking a bit shaky. If I remember correctly, Gerald Green hit some big shots in that 2OT win that snapped the losing streak, and the team never looked back after that.

    That you have a Harden hater "liking" your posts only reinforces your posting history as well as your obvious break from reality.

    Q helped you with this new "truth" amirite?

    Durant didn't say that for himself, he was saying that the shot still has value and he thinks the reason guys are abandoning it because people are telling them to and they aren't getting in game practice.

    This is what has happened with the post game even though Jokic and Embiid are still showing you can run an entire offense through the low-post still but bigs come into the NBA and they never work on it so of course when you post them up it's bad. Back then though every big worked on their low-post game.

    Also, yeah, if you can't shoot the shot then you shouldn't take it, that applies to everyone...but if someone can shoot the shot or has the potential to shoot the shot...they should.

    I'm not talking about how good or bad they are at mid-range just that they agree that the shot has value and worth and players who can add it to their game should.

    Like yall worship CP3 (for good reason) and realize how effective it makes him especially when closing out games? What's wrong with that?

    No one is saying everyone should take the shot but if you are a shooter and you can hit the shot or have the potential to hit the shot...you should take the shot. That's all.
