mattie, I agree with you. But you should play nice with wintermute. He is not baiting, he just disagrees.
Guys with a high TS% are guys you want to get the ball to, if you are trying to generate points. It can be overdone, of course. Kobe, I believe, has a good TS%, but much of it is his being a black hole. A three can be a wasted possession, it can be a bad shot, but it doesn't have to be. An open 3 by a guy that shoots as well as Danny does is a very good shot. A post up by a guy like Danny that results in FT's is a good play. Both of these generate positive TS% results.
It is perhaps important to note that TS% shows that made 3's are better than made 2's. And that missed 3's are not better than made 2's. That 'and 1's' are a good thing. That getting fouled and getting FT's is good. All of these things are things coaches like, n'est pas?
One more question. IIRC, the rebounds from 3's are easier for the offense to rebound than from 2. The defense walls out the offense near the basket, but the long rebound makes it past the wall and into the area where the offensive players can get to it.
