he does have a nice stroke actually much prettier than kirk's form. i really like his shooting form as he releases the ball at the top of his jump. i don't have problem with streak shooters but if you're averaging below 40% from the field that's just inexcusable.Originally posted by <b>futuristxen</b>!
It's kind of sad because Jamal has a nice stroke. He's just really streaky. But his shooting is actually one of the reasons teams like him.
He's kind of the guy who doesn't belong on the list.
From the list above, it is safe to conclude that NBA teams should stay away from players who's first name or last name starts with J. Because those players don't actually have a JOriginally posted by <b>hoops</b>!
in no particular order:
the one thing i really like about hinrich is that he is such a complete player offensive player and shoots at a high percentage from the field when he was still at kansas. i don't know what happen to him but since entering the nba he completely turn into another player. all of a sudden he couldn't hit the broadside of a barn. he can't hit mid-range J, trey, floaters n when he gets to the hole either get his sh!t [email protected] or couldn't finish.Originally posted by <b>VincentVega</b>!
Kirk Hinrich is shooting almost 40% from behind the arc, and his form is flawless. His FG% is down because he gets absolutely zero calls (especially if that haggard rat Jess Kersey is officiating) and his scoring via penetration is thus inhibited. Don't believe me? Ask Scott Skiles.
Hinrich's too good of a shooter not to raise his FG% considerably once he gets more respect around the league. He was a career 50%FG/43% 3PT shooter playing at the highest level in college.
Crawford is streaky, but he is a better number than the stats indicate. The Bulls backcourt is keyed on far too often and far too much due to injuries and inconsistent play in the frontcourt.
No he didn't. And by "another player", do you mean starter for the Rookie Team?Originally posted by <b>hoops</b>!

Read my post again. Hinrich's getting screwed on the calls, and this has forced him to be much less ineffective than he normally is close to the hoop. Skiles has mentioned this on more than one occasion -- he even got fined $7,500 because he said it too loud. And Hinrich is shooting very well from three. In fact, he's shooting better from downtown than Peja did last year.
And they all miss more than Cassell. He just nails his jumpers. Give him some credit, that's good basketball.Originally posted by <b>VincentVega</b>!
Baron Davis: 38.6% FG, 30.5% 3PT, 7.8 apg
Allen Iverson: 39.5% FG, 29.2% 3PT, 6.3 apg (looks like AI needs more "practice")
Kirk Hinrich: 39.5% FG, 38.2% 3PT, 6.1 apg
Steve Francis: 40.3% FG, 30.0% 3PT, 5.9 apg
Steve Nash: 44.4% FG, 37.9% 3PT, 8.2 agp
Mike Bibby: 45.3% FG, 43.3% 3PT, 5.5 apg
Hinrich is in the middle of this group of elite guards in FG%, and he has the second-best 3PT% out of all of them as well. All of this while playing with a sporadic and injured frontcourt the vast majority of the season.
He's shooting on the average about the same as Baron Davis, Iverson, and Francis. He's pretty much been as good and maybe a little better than Francis this year. Yet Francis is an all-star.Originally posted by <b>BigAmare</b>!
Crawford could build a whole country with his bricks not just a city.
