    For real? He cited several other things to back that up, including shots attempted and made. The large sample size available lends a lot of credence to his rate statistics. I mean...that's how statistics work.

    No, I think that was said because you refuse to acknowledge a pretty large body of evidence that's been presented to refute your case, and instead repeated the same claims over and over again.

    This is a good tool to use to see Brandon's hotspots from previous seasons.

    I mean Rush shot nearly 4 3s/game last year. That's not shooting it very often?
    Let me think about this.....HE IS TAKING 8.5 SHOTS A GAME AND HE WAS A STARTER....

    IF he isn't going to shoot two's in the game then I want my sg shooting 3's. IF he is our long term sg then I think he has to take more shots and of those shots he should take the ones that he feels most comfortable taking.

    You want a good example then look at Raja Bell when he was in Phoenix. He took 400 some 3's a year and made a good percentage of them. IF that is what Rush has to offer then I gladly take it. I honestly wish he was more versatile but we have had success with one dimensional players before.

    On a side note I just looked this up. Quis in his last year here took almost as many shots in 54 games as did Brandon in 82.

    Hey if your a one dimensional NBA player than you had better be exploiting that part of your game a whole lot more than Brandon is...JMO

    I do not have an argument, my original statement was Rush needs to work on his follow through, it was just a harmless comment, nothing more. When pressed about it, i stated i do not believe rush is a consistent 3 pt shooter, others have went on and on about it, and i have stated that i do not believe the stats/%'s are the only factor that should be considered.

    maybe i should have simply said that Brandon Rush overall is an average shooter in general.. then maybe this discussion would not have gone so far. i could then point to his 62 % free throw and 42 fg % as to why i think Rush is not a very good shooter, and that I tend to believe his brother Kareem was and is the better shooter b/t the two.

    at this point, i dont care, and im sure that over the course of the season those who watch rush play will see the point that i originally tried to make. hopefully i am proved wrong and rush worked on his shooting over the summer.

    wtf?? pls summarize his large body of evidence which is based purely on stats and %'s which again i have stated is only one sample of data that can be looked at. the other is actual play and that is what im basing my opinion on.

    im done with this for now.

    i didnt say that, go back and reread the original comment, i said he needs better follow through so he can improve his jump shooting. it was a suggestion.

    i dont give a damn if the guy shoots like joakim noah if the ball goes through the hoop.

    stop twisting my words into what you want them to be and read the actual comments i made to begin with.

    peace

    im pretty much over this. i want to see rush do well and not root against him. last season and his career here he has been a very inconsistent offensive player. he does shoot the 3 well for someone who only shoots 60 some percent from the free throw line.

    he has had a couple good offensive games, hopefully he continues cause the pacers can really use his offense at the sg position.

    * the poll is not completely lopsided. maybe i misspoke, but i just hope to see rush bring it offensively every night.

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I think it's not as lopsided because the wording doesn't represent what started the debate in the first place. PacersPride didn't say he wasn't consistent at first, he just said he wasn't a good shooter from 3, at all. Even saying that his 3 point shooting percentage was misleading, no idea how that's possible, but hey.

    I should have replaced "threat" with "shooter" I think that would have changed the results pretty significantly.

    lets do a new poll and make it "is rush a consistent shooter" how do you feel the results would be then?

    its a long season, rush has good games and then goes back to his normal inconsistent ways.

    as ive said, this argument/debate caught me off gaurd, maybe i did not clarify as well as i should have and i can accept that.

    is rush a consistent shooter? is he a consistent offensive player? regardless of what was originally said, the above two questions are still very valid to any pacers fan.
