3 Point Rates

This list isn’t as cut and dry IMO as who has the best percentage. Anyone can look that up, but what kind of shots (catch and shoot vs off the dribble) are players taking and the volume is a big component of that.  A player might shoot 40% but if it’s on 1 make a game teams aren’t paying them the same amount of attention in their defense which is a lot of why they are making those dare you to shoot shots. They don’t have the same gravity to space open an offense up.

Players that are making 2.5 or more 3’s a game are certainly taking some harder shots off the dribble, step back, from deep to generate some of those shots in higher pressure difficult situations and more difficult shot. Especially if they are doing in in fewer minutes. I’ve added 3’s per 100 possessions so you can track the rate they are getting them up.   I’m also weighing this last year higher than the previous one. The empty gyms during covid really benefited some shooters in ways it didn’t some other skills. There were examples like Chris Shelton making .486% on 2.7 makes during the covid year and only making .309% this year.
