Our PG put in a lot of work this off-season on his shot, and we are seeing the results. His 3-point improvement was mentioned in Zach Lowe's Grantland piece this morning (http://grantland.com/features/the-charlotte-construction-co-bobcats-hornets-rebuilding-nba/), but I wanted to provide a few more stats to put this in context.
John is currently making threes at a higher rate then Derrick Rose or Russell Westbrook has ever shot across the course of a season. And he's making them better than LeBron did in his first eight seasons. Though these players were not considered three-point specialists, three-point shooting was never considered a weakness.
John has also raised his adjusted field goal percentage (which counts a made three as 1.5 made field goals) from .449 to .477, which puts him on the same level of accuracy of Westbrook and Irving (!, though in a down year). See the image below for qualified point guards, from ESPN.com.
This is an incredible improvement. If John can sustain this level of shooting over the course of his career, then we will be lucky. If he continues to improve on his three, he will be known as a sharpshooter. If he works on other aspects of his game in the off-season with the same tenacity, the league better watch out.
21-25 are cut off and are Walker, Sessions, Burke, Jennings, and Carter-Williams.
