Posted by emy1013 on 3/15/2013 10:16:00 PM (view original):I think this is my point, but I didn't make it. If you jack up a tone of 3s you aren't going to win in this game on a regular basis, and by jack up I mean hit the RL average
Definitely the decision of the coach. It's very easy to have a team jack up a bunch of threes. Give high distro to the guards, set 'em at a +2 three point setting and let it fly. Voila, a ton of threes (and probably a loss to go along with it).
what is the real life average? like, you posted michigan state, but what is the 150-200th team or whatever the median is? i think the reality is in HD the low end teams shoot WAY less than in real life, but its not clear to me if the median is lower, and the high end, im not sure about that either.
also, i totally disagree, taking a bunch of 3s can be very effective. i dont think hitting the real life average, whatever that may be (1 in 3 to 1 in 4 shots?) is going over the line, you can be very efficient.
i agree with the earlier poster who suggested one needs to look at the fga too, to make sure its not just a case of fewer shots. would be interesting to know the 3pta % (not the 3ptm %, but % of fgs thant are 3s) compares to real like for median teams, high end teams (in terms of 3pta %), and low end teams. if HD doesnt match the stats of life, its a legitimate concern, but i think gathering some of that data is needed to make a strong case for things being out of whack.
