im sorry but hendo's 3 pt ability will not be the reason we lose games. if anything hendo's all-around around offensive game should make others open.im sorry to keep disappointing everyone but mkg may not ever be a star; dnt get me wrong he will be a good team player that helps win games but mkg dosn't have the offensive skill set or let alone can even shoot the ball effectively/correctly to become an offensive factor. so with that being said, mkg wil be the odd man out in the rotation not hendo. thats why dunlap most effective line-up is when gordon and hendo is in, not mkg and gordon.
gordon being a great out shooter doesn't make him versatile especially when he's a one sided player who doesn't offer much but scoring?
shooting/making 3's is an privilege that can be taken out of context . its easier to score closer to the basket than it is further away . thats why the lg avg in 3 pt% is 35 and the avg fg % is around 45 . the object of the game is to get closer to the basket , thats why post players are at a premium not 3 point shooters . and, if hendo is an guard that can post up , come off screens, and penetrate then let him play his game because there are not many players who can do all three(the one's that can are all-stars) .
i don't think its required for an starting guard to make 3's just the same way; a starting point guard doesn't have court vision or past first mentality(westbrook), a pf who cant rebound(stoudamire), or a center who doesn't have any post play(okeafor). as a coach you hide your players discrepancies and highlight their strengths,but at the same time get them to buy in your philosophy . if hendo isn't a good 3 pt shooter ,wow who cares ?! he can do about 10 other things other guards dnt or can't do.side note, most teams have about 2 shooters in their rotations. if we have sessions,gordon,hendo,mullen,and biz as our primary(not starting) line-up that gives us more than enough shooting power without hendo taking numerous 3's?
