He Was Never A Shooter

Even in his prime, Rose was never known as a shooter. A career 30.2 percent three-point shooter entering the 2016-17 season, New York didn’t expect their point guard to contribute from beyond the arc.

He’s making his mid-range attempts at just over the league average rate with a 40.8 percent. Granted, he should be taking fewer. He’s jacked up 179 of those bad boys which puts him 30th in the league in total mid-range attempts. At this point though the guy isn’t changing. Some occasional spotty shot selection comes with the territory.

It’s the price you pay with Rose.
