Kyrie is nowhere near Rondo in:
And those three are three of the most important parts of the game.
Kyrie might be better in:
Yet... Rondo brings such a bigger impact to the game than Kyrie can EVER have.
When did mid-range shooting percentage become an integral part of the game?
I'm making a point, since y'all seem to be so intent on saying Kyrie is so good a shooter.
10-to-15 feet: 48%
16-to-23 feet: 49.2%
Combined: 48.7% on 220 attempts
10-to-15 feet: 30.8%
16-to-23 feet: 50.8%
Combined: 47.2% on 148 attempts
Irving takes more mid-range shots, and he makes a higher percentage of them. My guess is that he gets less open looks than Rondo, too. Regardless, there's no objective way to say Rondo is better at mid-range shooting than Irving.
So basically, Rondo is slightly better from 16-23 ft, while Irving is noticeably better from 10-15 ft.
What are the shot attempt breakdowns, and is 10-15 ft really even midrange shooting? How many guards actually take many shots from this range? Basially , we're talking about who shoots better floaters, aren't we?
I just think it would have been better to strictly look at the 16-23 ft shots, as far as midrange shooting is concerned.
