Like Jamal Crawford, Chris Duhon is a streaky shooter, and he has poor shot selection. He attempts almost twice as many 3's as free throws, and he attempts almost half as many 3's as field goals.
Look at Duhon's "shot selection"
Career 3 pt attempts: 943
Career free throw attempts: 391
3pt attempts last season: 155
Free throw attempts last season: 80
Career field goal attempts: 1,853
Career 3pt attempts: 943
FG attempts last season: 344
3pt attempts last season: 155
About 50% of the shots that Duhon takes are 3 pointers.
But look at his 3pt%
Career 3pt %: 35.6%
3pt% last season: 34.8%
For a guy whose 3pt% isn't even that high, that's a lot of attempts from downtown.
His shot selection sucks, Crawford style.
I'm done talking about Duhon. I've watched Duhon play on numerous occasions, and I know what I'm talking about. If people don't want to listen, that's fine. I'm just presenting the facts.
idk abcd, thats when stats may lie to you about duhon, duhon is not a player who tries to cross u over and just pull up a 3(ala crawford), duhon is most of the time spotted up for 3, duhon doesnt dribble to the basket cuz thats not his game, he's just a wack spot up shooter, most of his FG attempted are 3's, u'll see games where he is 0-5 for the game and be 0-4 from 3
Anyways, enough about Duhon. We'll see how he plays, when the season starts. I saw him play a lot last year, but those of you that haven't seen him play will get the chance.
I don't know if the Iranian center is any good. My point is that Curry sucks, so it would've been nice to be able to bench him for a legit center. Now, if Curry plays bad(which there's a 90% chance he will) the only backup we have is James. James is foul prone, so they'll still have to put Lee and Randolph at center, when Curry plays like trash. Lee and Randolph are good rebounders and scorers, but we need good defenders at center.
i would love the knicks to sign this guy he can get up and down the court and he plays defense thats something both our big men DON'T do. and we did take risks that failed but a rebuilding team get to the top again by taking risks and they work out...and of course some luc lottery wise etc....we'll never get better if we try to do what the celtics did last offseason we should sign this kid help him work on his game he'll be just fine. we should grow some balls and take risks...not just wait around for LeBron to fall to our laps cause that wont happen he's staying in cleveland
The only forgen born young big man project I want in a Knicks uniform is Hasheam Theabeat
we are way too bored on this site, this guy would get folded up like a chair in the NBA, his moves are straight up and down, nothing lateral. If you are a 7 footer, even plodders like Yao, and Howard, you gotta be able to face up in the league today. Even Illgauskus faces up and can pass. This guy would be another Bruno Sundov im sure of it. I see nothing here.
I like Duhon but can he be the knicks starting guard???
He wasn't even the best player on Iran...you guys need to do more research.
