This is great.

http://www.nba.com/hotspots/

You can pick any team and/or any player and see their "hot spots" by season, home, away, last 5 games, last 10 games, or versus a specific opponent.

I hope this gets archived moving forward. It would be great to have this in the all-time stats.

*edit* Looks like they've got stats back to 2003-2004 for this. Sweet!

My goodness. Look at Dwight Howard. He shoots nothing but dunks and layups.

He literally took 800 layups/dunks, and only 150 of any kind of other shot. Ha

Yep. And this: Murphy this season has taken more shot at the rim (84) than from his sweet spot as a trailer (78).

Not what you'd expect from a prototypical stretch forward.

Thanks Hicks. Great find. I truly appreciate your relentless browsing of the web, finding things like this. Your efforts are duly noted.

Some individual advice:

Troy - drift to your left when you're the trailer.

Brandon - go to the corner.

Solo - stay in front of the hoop.

Roy - stay in the lane. Please.

TJ - pass the ball. Oh wait - you don't get in the games anymore. OK.

This has been up for awhile, no? I specifically remember seeing that Dunleavy shot over 50% from certain midrange spots his half & half season with the Warriors and Pacers and advocating we use him like Rip Hamilton or Reggie.

It's interesting to go through these player by player. Check out Roy's, for example. Lotsa blue on the court if you just look at surface area, but look at where he's taken shots from and a pattern becomes pretty clear. Let's put it this way... he's not a stretch big man.

Tyler's shot chart looks pretty rough all over. McBob's is pretty decent. AJ has a surprising volume of shots in close.

It's really interesting.
