It's not about just Sexton.Since Sexton shot 40% from 3 on 4.1 attempts per game in his rookie season in the NBA, I think people should be very careful about tinkering with his form -- whatever it is, it seems to be working.
As for measuring how good a player is by looking at shooting, it's not the result of nothingness, it's because there is a shot on the court that gives 50% more points than any other shot, which has significantly unbalanced the game, and people are rightly very concerned with how good a player is at that shot.
Also, the main things that get left out when you look at just shooting are 1) passing/playmaking, and 2) defense. Since I think it's pretty clear that Sexton is at best a work in progress in both of those areas, if not actively bad, there is going to be a lot of focus on his shooting.
