    This is alarming if true. IMO there is nothing wrong with the mid-range jumper. Two points is twos points anyway you look at it.
    Besides he can fake a 3 then step a couple of steps inside the the 3 pt line and have a wide open shot. I dont get it why they say it is a bad shot. This kid could be averaging much more a game if let loose.

    Same thing for Markkanen. He has settled to be a 3 pt shooter. Over 5o% of shots are 3's. He has a mid-range shot as well, During the Bulls-Celtics game last night Scalabrini made the correct assessment of Lauri when he said he settles for 3's way to much.

    Last season and the season before that we were criticized as a team that did not take a lot of 3 attempts. We went too far the other way this season. Young, White, Carter, Markkanen and others can be used with the mid-range and post up moves.

    IMO we would have more than 14 wins and players like White would be doing much better as well.

    I agree with you. If true this is very alarming.
