Last season, there were 70 players (yes, I was surprised) who shot over 40% from 3s among those who attempted at least two 3 pointers per game.Not doubting you but do you have actual stats proving that. Because from I saw the other day only four players in the league are shooting over 40% from three land (two of them are the Curry brothers)
There was nobody who shot even close to 60% from mid range, and only 9 players who shot over 50% from mid range among those who attempted at least two mid range shots per game.
You can certainly adjust the filter by looking at players with more attempts per game, but these stats I presented above should be enough to show the staggering advantage of shooting 3s over mid range shots.
No idea where you're getting your numbers. Small sample size since it's early in the season, but this current season, among players attempting at least 2 three pointers per game, there are 51 players shooting 40% or better from 3s.
This doesn't mean basketball is better or worse to watch. That's everyone's preference. But you can't argue, at least not with actual numbers, that mid range shots are more efficient shots than 3 pointers.
