Last year, he shot 31.4 percent from long-distance. His typical shot chart looks like a boxer's face bandaged with tons of tiny X's.
And yet somehow he was named the 12th-best pure shooter in the NBA by his peers.
Kevin Durant, who is absolutely the one person on this planet we would want shooting a 19-foot jumper with the game on the line, was one spot behind him at No. 13.
We have no explanation.
