Default wade with a revealing quote about the changing mentality of NBA players

Quote:
"Weíre both so conscious of wanting to shoot 50 percent, that sometimes you wish you had that Kobe (Bryant) thought, where you just donít care, We talk about it all the time. It sucks at times, but itís who we are."

http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/sp...entages/nT2sZ/

Can you imagine an AI or Kobe saying that in the early 2000s before the Hollingerfication of the sport?

This is why we need to look at these .500% fg season stats with suspicion. Players are consciously modifying their game to achieve these stats, perhaps to the detriment of the team, because that's the purvey by which players are judged now.

it highlights a difference in perspective between the old school and new school players. Back in the early 2000s in the most offensively depressed era in all of NBA, it was just about being able to put up points and that's the lingering sentiment of a player like Kobe which is almost quaint in the efficiency obsessed era of today.

If kobe entered the league in 2006 I have no doubt he would be a .500+ scorer as well because his mentality would be completely different.

Pleasure of taking 30+ shots >>>> pleasure of shooting 50% on 10 shots

You see, that right there is the story that op is trying to fabricate. I have dealt with this f*gg*t before so I know his ways. I have never seen dwade "scared to shoot because he wants to protect his percentage."

if you notice, lebron will never shoot the ball at the end of the first three quarters to save his fg%. he will get the ball and there will be like 2 sec left he will never shoot it. he will just let the time run out because he doesnt want to shoot a low percentage shot, even if there is a chance it could put his team up by more.

if lebron didnt play to save his fg% he would be shooting 45% probably.

Players have probably been fully cognizant of their stats and efficiency for decades. I don't put much stock into this being something new.

Why is this clown pretending to be a Wade fan still? Answer this, OP, don't be a coward. And change your avatar and title to something about Kobe. Much more appropriate.

I fully agree players have always been cognizant of stats

but it's which stats are considered important that have changed. in early 2000s it was just about PPG hence you had a wealth of volume shooters

now it's all about efficiency. so all the players now try to have high fg% and volume shooting is considered outmoded and relegated.

3rd option on a stacked team should shoot a high FG%.....

Wade has now become a Byron Scott level player on the Showtime Lakers.
