Kevin Durant Avoids Heaves at the Buzzer to Keep His Shooting % High
 

 
You’ll occasionally see NBA players avoid taking desperation heaves at the end of quarters for a couple of reasons: they don’t think they can make the shot, and in some instances, they want to preserve their shooting percentage. Kevin Durant falls in the latter category, and it’s something OKC Thunder head coach Scott Brooks is against (inefficiency be damned).

Russell Westbrook, meanwhile, is still very much Russell Westbrook. Per Daily Thunder: “We talked about it, about seven weeks ago maybe, couple months ago, and we talked about it,’ Brooks said. ‘I said ‘We have to shoot that shot. There’s still time in the game — shoot it.’ The only time we don’t shoot it is if we’re up and it’s the last seconds because you don’t want to do that. We had that talk and somebody on our team did not take it that same night, and then we all got on him,’ he said. ‘The next night, somebody made that shot.’

How do Thunder players feel about the halfcourt heave? Should it be counted as an attempt? And do they pull the just-after-the-buzzer move? …

Kevin Durant: ‘It depends on what I’m shooting from the field. First quarter if I’m 4-for-4, I let it go. Third quarter if I’m like 10-for-16, or 10-for-17, I might let it go. But if I’m like 8-for-19, I’m going to go ahead and dribble one more second and let that buzzer go off and then throw it up there. So it depends on how the game’s going.’

Russell Westbrook: ‘No. Nope … If I was considering about [statistics] I’d do a lot of sh-t different.’”

But only Lebron cares about his stats








better believe your favorite player checks their %, but just few of them can do a better job at it than others

these new school players love having the best looking statlines. all the sh*t people say to make advanced stats seem like the end all be all in sports probably has something to do with this.

MOST player always do this sh*t is a tad bit annoying.....I somewhat get cats not launching 70-80 foot shots..... but theirs a ton of times when cats can get up a shot a few feet in front of halfcourt and still refuse to shoot..... A random miss isn't gonna fu*k up your FG% that much anyway I'd rather take my chances being one of the few cats to hit one of them crazy shots

Lebron did this tonight at the end of the 3rd quarter. He waited until the buzzer went off and then shot it up, he ended up making the shot but it didn't count. I'm sure he did that sh*t intentionally
