Simple as that, and for the record Kobe and Wade have the same TS% this year.

But Wade isn't talking about free throws. So talking about TS% here is meaningless.

He's talking about the shots you take from the field. Ane Kobe has hardly been inefficient this year from the field. So Kobe is not really a great example in terms of efficiency, but he's a good example in taking too many bad shots. It just so happens that Kobe has made them at an inordinate rate for him as this is the highest efg% of his career.

Kobe is clearly a better player, a more accomplish winner, more individually talented, more fan-base, more career accomplishments and way longer longevity than Wade. These Wade vs Kobe talks is going no where. Kobe is clearly better.

The right player taking a difficult shot - either for his own rhythm or to make defenses commit to him can be the best thing for the team . Westbrook is a great example - people are angry he doesn't pass to Durante every possession - but that's just a very short sighted view of the game.

Even though that kills the flow of their offense, it's all about dat field goal percentage baby.

Nobody in the league, and i mean nobody does that more than Wade.

Oh and the "Chuckbe" Kobe has been far more efficient than Wade in their heads up battles throughout their careers.

I don't see a problem with wanting to take the best shot available in order to help your team instead of jacking up unwarranted shots. There are pros and cons both ways in that while you are more efficient, you don't do as much in volume as you would otherwise.

I think he meant it for Westbrook who does challenge Wade and is likely an obstacle. Kobe rarely shoots that low and isn't in his way this year.

Does he think all these guys really don't care about making the shot/winning the game, and they're just doing it for fun? Have a little respect for his peers man Every NBA players are trying to make shots and win games. Not everyone plays on a stacked team and get easy shots all day long.

But many of these guys do....not to mention. Open NBA players make shots. The biggest misconception as fans is that role players just can't do anything. They can. They are far better than most of us give them credit for.

And Wade isn't talking about a huge difference. I could literally be just a play or two a game. But, as a coach, those two plays could be the difference in the game.

We all know what he's talking about. Take Melo for example. those 2 to 3 shots a game he takes...he just settles. He could pass. He could create. He could try to draw a foul. Instead, he just settles and takes a very low percentage shot. It's the difference between him and Durant offensively.

I think Wade was just referring to players who shoot around 41-42% ... reading comprehension is a must OP.

Yeah I was reaching, but
Monta and Jennings, who are Wade's first round opponents. I'm assuming.

I remember seeing both Ellis and Jennings shooting around .395 to .401 a little after the All-Star break. Ellis shot a lot better when the Redick trade first went down, but now he's dropping back to 35-40% shooting for the past month.

EDIT: Ellis currently at .416 FG and Jennings at .398, and Jennings' FG career so far is .394

Look at this c#nt that teamed up with Bosh and Lebron, cherry picks his shots like there's no tomorrow, taking shots at players that can't cherry pick, because there's nobody else.
