Well Derozan is more than just midrange jumpers too, but sure I get your point.exactly, you can get midrange shots anytime you want, but it’s a little tougher to get them when every defender knows that IS what you want to shoot. CP3 I can agree lives off the midrange shot, he obviously can make 3’s though and he brings a lot more to the game than just his scoring.
and sure, if Derozan got to where he was a 35%+ three point shooter, he would be crazy good. Thing is he’s 31 and never has done it…no reason to think it suddenly changes now. And it actually hurts his teammates offense due to no defender coming out to the 3 point line when Derozan is off ball out there
Well we have seen players who work on their shot over an offseason and go from shooting no 3s to becoming snipers in a short period of time (ie Channing Frye). We also have seen players who do work on their shots over time and go from being poor shooters to acceptable shooters later in their careers (JKidd, Rondo). The precedence is there, he just needs to do it. I don't know if he will, but if I was in his crew, I'd be telling him to
