Makes no sense to not shoot midrange shots. It’s literally 80 percent of the floor, control the midrange, you control the game

The three is not ruining the game. Did the Toronto raptors win relying on 3s? The league is wide open this year and years to come.

Adding onto the players that thrive from mid range: Kawhi Leonard. A large amount of shots he takes are from that area, whether it be from the post or with a pull-up, and he's considering one of the better scorers now. As much as 3 pointers and paint scoring is important, it isn't everything.

Love when Jalen gets all excited before he makes his spot on point. If you time it perfectly, you can see this little bright shiny light in his eye before answering a Q with somma dat Knowledge, it's Great. All i can say is, that's Passion folks

1) He ain't MJ or Kobe or KD 2) He's not playing in the 90s/early 2000s 3) his game is already dunks/layups and 3s 4) we don't know exactly what the analytics dept told him - it may have just been the graphic they put up here - his mid range shooting % is not good

Our staff is ruining Dunn too. He’s a midrange shooter and they are saying eliminate the shot. Stupid.

You LIMIT midrange shots but don't ELIMINATE them. Even Steph Curry, the NBA's most prolific bomber, shoots 25% of his shots not as layups or 3's. If you can score from anywhere, you have to be defended everywhere. It's like running the football in the NFL. You get fewer yards per play than passing, but by committing to the run in the first half, the defense has to honor the run and it will eventually open up the passing game. And then in the second half, if you're winning you have to be able to run out the clock and wear out defenses. That said, LaVine needs to stop bricking from midrange, because he takes a bunch of contested midrange shots that kill the team. Last year he shot 26% from 3-10 feet, 30% from 10-16 feet, and 38% on long twos. That won't get it done. He's gotta stop shooting in traffic.

It aint the analytics, its how you interpret and apply them. Analytics have truly revolutionised the game in a better way. If rockets are loosing it's just because of misinterpretaion of data.

The Analytics department should just let the guy do his thing. His a great talent. Just shoot whatever you feel is open or confortable.

Stats don't really mean nothing. Because a bench player can make a game winning shot just as much as the so called go to guy can.

WHAT? IF ZACH CAN SHOOT 3'S AND EASY LAYUPS AND DUNKS THEN WHAT'S THE PROBLEM? HE CAN SHOOT MIDRANGE..BUT WHY IF HE CAN GET TO THE RIM AND DRAW A FOUL? Not many guys who can shoot the 3 like a mid range jumper and also soar like MJ..He's got midrange game but why does it matter? Draw the fouls for the and 1..DUH...

If I were Zach, I would say "trade me". This is ridiculous. He is "THE STAR" of the bulls. The NBA just approved his all star chip this off season. Every NBA player who is good gets a chip for all star. When the league decides, they will we make him an all star. There are players who average 20+ points. It's not about if you are good. If you are great your rookie year and the talent is undeniable, then you have to ascend. At the end of the day, it's not about talent (Jamal Crawford) or money (Gilbert Arenas). You have to play the game and I'm not talking about basketball. If you dont believe, just look at Jamal Crawford.

Mid range is the easiest shot due to the fact that it's rarely contested by defenses.

@Venne V. You're reaching to find something. KD choked against the Warriors after being up 3-1 he shot 36%fg the last 3 games and choked the series away before joining the team he couldn't beat. See, we can all bring up facts. KD's best thing is scoring and LeBron beats him at that. KD never even made an all defensive team. Man LeBron is truly great. Wow

Exillens 2.0 KD did hit 2 game winners 2 years in a row in Lebron’s face. KD has serious injuries that mess his numbers up. Lebron couldn’t even guard Jason Terry or JJ Barea in the 2011 finals with a healthy Wade and Bosh
Exillens 2.0
Exillens 2.0 19 days ago
@Venne V. Doesn't matter. Scoring isn't even LeBron's main focus and he still averages more points for his career. That's why KD doesn't have 4 MVPs and 3 rings either. KD's best thing LeBron is better at. Truly great. Wow

This is simple, if Lavine wants to keep shooting from the mid-range he needs to start shooting better at mid-range. If there was a player who wouldn't stop jacking up threes when he has a bad percentage at the three-point line, Jalen would saying that he needs to stop shooting threes.

Analytics can be ignored. Please let’s all ignore them. The day that a player that shoots 3s and ley ups can’t pull ups from mid range, people will start saying how incomplete that player is. So let’s just all ing ore those dumb mathematicians and enjoy the skilled dudes that can score from anywhere

I love the mid range. I'll knock that down all day
It's sad how the Bulls have tried to silence good players Thats ok watch when they trade him he's gonna be something special on a contender!!!

Trust me, LaVine’s midrange will be useful whenever the Bulls make the playoffs.
