Leandro Barbosa

Only up to 47% right now but it will continue to go up. Since he is starting, he is averaging 15ppg on 53%FG 50%3s.

Yeah and like half of his points are layup and dunks on fastbreaks.

He doesn't even have the handle for a shooting guard in my opinion.

You obviously haven't watched any Nets basketball lately. Richard Jefferson has become one of our most reliable jump-shooters. He has been hitting outside shots with consistency and a high frequency. He gets a lot of dunks and layups, but the majority of his points come from jump-shots. He is however a small forward. He's played very little, if any, minutes at the SG spot.

This is all true, I was just noting that he could play SG and still be more effective than a Kerry Kittles.

I agree with you, but if RJ plays SG, who plays SF? The only way I can see RJ moving to SG is if Eddie Griffin is a real stud and would start at SF. But I don't see that happening this season.

Are you hallucinating? How can 9-19 be 49.9999?
Use your head man. If a player shoots 100% for the year, then goes 0-5 the the last game of the season, does that make his % 50%? No It makes it slightly less than 100%. You, my friend, are thinking like an elementary school student. And not a very good one at that.

According to my calculation, his field goal average went down by 0.9
He was 309 for 614 before the game which is a 50.3% clip.

Now he is 318 for 633, which is 50.2%.

Wow, all you had to do was some math.

What calculation did you do?

Using other examples are ludicrous. If you want to back up Cassell's field goal statistics, back it up with some mathematical language, since I can't because i think like an elementary student.
