Question:Kobe's lifetime shooting percentage from 2 point range is .453 (or 45.3%), his lifetime shooting percentage from 3 point range is .337 (or 33.7%).
As a "weighted" average, where is Kobe more "efficient" from? Two point range or Three point range?
Waht two players from the lakers roster duting the regular season are not in the play offs roster???
First off, you are a little incorrect that Kobe shoots his 2 pointers at 45.3%. That is his overall field goal percentage. If you subtract out his three pointers, he actually shoots 47.9% from 2 point range.
If you look strictly at these numbers, Kobe is more "efficient" from 3 point range averaging 1.011 points whenever he shoots a three pointer, and 0.959 points whenever he shoots a two.
This however does not tell the whole story because Kobe is also an excellent free throw shooter. Kobe shoots 83.8% from the free throw line, and because a huge majority of his free throws are a result of him working inside the 3 point line, this would increase his 2 point efficiency.
One last shot for the Warriors?
its got to be the two point range not only based on stats but also because he attacks the rim alot he only turns to the 3 pointer when the teams down or he wants an 81 point game
Will NBA suffer next year?
Drew E. WOW that was a great answer, best answer for sure . Amazing, good math too.
In a basketball standpoint I think he is more important with 2 point FG. He has a great shot 33.7 is a good average for 3pt to have. But there are greater shooters. Definetly in the league now he is the greatest or in the top 3 of getting to the rim and scoring as a guard. 45.3 is amazing when you are always in the top 5 for points per game.
Drew E that is the most impressive answer Ive ever seen though statistically.
