You don't have to shoot off the dribble jumpers to be successful. He can spot up and hit jumpers. And he gets to the basket at will. That translates into pretty good offensively most of the time
I completely agree. But he shot just 21.1% on jump shots and only 18% on catch and shoot opportunities, which is basically spot up jumpers.
Sure, in college he was able to get to the rim at will. He was the best athlete on the court every game. He still will be able to get to the rim pretty well in NBA, but all teams are going to do is sag off him, cut him off at the lane, and make his shot the jumper. Which he hasnt shown yet.
