I haven't seen anything saying how he can't develop a game like Wade. I see the wall of text, but how does that compare to Wade?...

re: Can Buddy be a D. Wade who can shoot the 3? - RadBro
You all are arguing that he can't play like Wade because he doesn't have the same vertical. Let's talk about how he comes off of picks, how he runs the open floor, how he assists in certain situations. But no, you've mentioned nothing of that sort....

[quote] this is awesome. Bc that's basically what he is asking[/quote] False. If 2003 Wade had a Hield Shot, he's be one of the best, 100%. Hield already has the shot. I'm simply asking if he has the ability to model his game after Wade, and looking for legitimate arguments as to why he...

re: Can Buddy be a D. Wade who can shoot the 3? - RadBro
D-Wade had a 31" Vertical. That's not Westbrook athleticism. "D Wade with a shot" doesn't mean same percentages. If Buddy was taking the same amount of 3's and also shooting 56% of his shots at the rim, he'd be averaging 50% of his team's total shots. Something's got to give. In other words, y...

[quote] Totally fair if he improves his ball handling. But Wade with a 3 point shite is idiotic. Wade with a 3 point shot is the best player eve[/quote] You do realize I'm talking about Wade at the same point in his career, right? The just-drafted Wade. Not the perennial All-Star. You should ...

[quote]One of the draft sites compared him to Brandon Roy...would that be a fair comparison in your opinion?[/quote] Roy shot 2.9 3/Game his last year at Washington. Hield shot 8.7/Game his last year at Oklahoma. As far as the numbers go, the 2P% and the FT Rates are there for comparison. ...

re: Can Buddy be a D. Wade who can shoot the 3? - RadBro
Doesn't seem like that data goes back to 2003. Only stat that's semi-related is 2PA, which Buddy Attempted less 2P/Game but at a higher percentage. Which I take as: Either Buddy isn't as bad at the rim as everyone assumes or he's got a sick mid-range game. Either way I'll take it. For ...

re: Official Buddy Hield Overreaction Thread. - RadBro
I posted this in the D Wade thread, but Hield's 2P% at the rim is much much higher than I thought it was. I wasn't so happy when we selected Hield. Mainly because I'm always weary of the No-Name guy the NCAA Markets, but if you remove that stigma, he's actually a very solid ball player....

re: Can Buddy be a D. Wade who can shoot the 3? - RadBro
[quote]Ball hanlding, slashing, and Drawing fouls[/quote] Okay, so D Wade average 6.05 FTA in college. Buddy averaged 4.6 his last two years in college. 6.05 at 70% FT is 4.235 made FT/Game. 4.6 at 88% is 4.05 made FT/Game. Also, lets note the upward trend: Buddy went from 1.3 to 2.5 ...
