    it was the other way around

    for at least a year the NBA was 'insisting' that official heights had to be w/o shoes. The league relaxed a little on this but not entirely. They wanted there to be normalized gauges since with-shoes measurements could vary between players from .75 - 2.5 inches. It's supposedly the main reason that the NBA has mandated, starting this year, that in order to be draft eligible players are required to participate in the pre-draft combines and be measured

    I can't wait to give this kid the ball fulltime and let him cook.

    The thing that made him so special to me predraft was is impact on the game without taking shots. You could see that in the second half last night where he leveraged his scoring to open up passing lanes for teammates. This is a superstar in the making. He has the ability to make his teammates look better just by being on the floor; and we don't have anyone else on the team who can do this to the extent that Scoot can.

    But his shooting and finishing at the rim HAVE to get better. If he's not a threat to score, teams are just going to sag off him and eliminate his passing options.

    Put a bunch of shooters around Scoot and get out of the way.

    Also the whistle will get kinder to scoot and some of those misses will become trips to the line.

    This is elite.

    Scoot's 3-point shooting:

    Feb: 40%
    Jan: 34%
    Dec: 35%
    Nov: 33%
    Oct: 5.6%

    If we take away October's 1-18 three-point shooting, Scoot is shooting 35% (51-146) for the rest of the season on 3-pointers.

    I think 35% exceeds everyone's expectations and is in the "hoped for" level.

    I expected 30% and hoped for 33% or above. The season isn't over yet of course. We'll see where it ends up.

    Also, as noted on the TV broadcast, Scoot is 50 for 51 on his free-throws since(including) the game on January 17th.

    Weirdly (and unexpected) 35% also is better than Damian's 3pt fg%.

    Can't argue with the numbers but one is not like the other. You simply cannot compare the two.

    Wasn't really comparing the two (in the sense of "Scoot is better!"), but more showing how we consider Dame a really good shooter, and people act like Scoot isn't. So if this early in his career he's already shooting a decent %, it's showing a lot of potential there.

    You appear to be correct!
    According to Galileo's principle of universality of free fall, if you drop a 5-pound and a 10-pound ball simultaneously from the Leaning Tower of Pisa, they would hit the ground at the same time, as all objects fall at the same rate in the absence of air resistance

    I wonder what Dame’s 3pt% (in PDX) would be if he only shot 3s from the line and not long bombs. Same with Curry.

    That said, Scoot’s shooting is definitely encouraging coupled with his ability to get to the line.
