27 attempts from the corner in 78 games tells the whole story for you?
The year before he was 5/21 from the corners (24%)
Hardly evidence that he is a "corner spacer", no?
And if he was such a good corner shooter, who OK'd him taking 211 shots from the top of the key at a 32% clip?
Why not run plays to set him up for the corner 3?
Here's what I got:
Vasquez: Le Pa 3 Md Rb
Gordon: Pa ST 3 Fe Od Sc Md
Aminu: St OD % Rb Bk
Davis: St Fe % Rb ID Bk
Lopez: Md % Po Rb ID Bk
Anderson: Le 3 Sc Md % Rb
Rivers: Pa Fe Od
Smiht: Le Fe Md % Rb ID Bk
Roberts: Pa 3 Md
Best 5 of Vasquez/Gordon/Aminu/Anderson/Davis:
My my, so defensive. Good to see you are able to hold a discussion without calling someone the c word
I brought up valid points. Corndeaux seemed to understand that, Im not sure why you were so defensive towards it.
"I started wondering," Shoals recounted, "if there wasn't something bigger going on when there were individual KGs and Dirks and teams like the Wizards where interplay took precedence over a fixed system." This notion of interplay over rigidity comes up a lot in writing about the Positional Revolution, and it's also crucial to the way the Heat play basketball.
Ziller told me that the purpose of the "Z" charts was to illustrate that a lot of current NBA stars confound positionality--point guards who are good at "shooting guard things," power forwards who are good at "point guard things"--and to emphasize that the "pure" player isn't inherently more valuable. All you need is a collection of players who can pool their skills together to give you everything you need to win basketball games, positionality be damned.
Not that orthodox positionality is dead...There will probably always be good teams with 7-footers and pass-first point guards. Rather, the Heat are a novelty, and novelties are useful because they force conventional wisdom - which is not just annoying but intellectually stifling -- to justify itself in a manner it normally isn't required to. The recitation of old clichés -- defense wins championships, good pitching beats good hitting -- don't help us grow or learn. When a team comes along and wins in a new and unexpected way, it compels us to interrogate The Way Things Are rather than just accepting it as a given.
