Worse Jump Shooters in the NBA

Watching Even Turner this year, I think he has to be one of the top five worse jump shooters, not including big men. Who else deserves a mention? Keith Bogans has had a terrible year shooting.

Yeah, Rondo has a weak

Yeah, Rondo has a weak jumper, if he ever gets one, he becomes even more lethal. I think Evan Turner's lack of a jumper has been his biggest downfall this year, defenders can play off him, and he doesn't have the explosive ability to get to the rim on a consistent basis.

My worse by position

My worse by position. The players I will naming are starters and not backup on pine riders so please take that in account when reading.

PG-Tyreke Evans- I heard so much about his outside shoot getting better ths summer. He is shooting just 27% from 3 and 39% from the field.

SG-Keith Bogans- He is on the court for defense and only this. He cant speard the floor at all, and makes gaps harder for Rose to find.

SF-Travis Outlaw- This year he cant find his range at all. In past years his numbers were much better. Maybe because he has long term deal now he is content. He is shooting below 40% from the field and 30% from 3 pt line.

PF-Anderson Varejo- Everytime he shots outside on the paint I have to peak between my fingers to see what happens.

C- Two words here- Ben Wallace

You guys haven't seen Corey Brewer shoot. Everything about his jump shot if off.

Travis Oulaw. The guy can't

Travis Oulaw. The guy can't hit an open jumper for his life. The guy is way overpaid and is better suited to come off the bench. Nets fans are litterally calling him Out-lol now.

Rondo, Dominic McGuire, and Tyreke Evans have weak jumpers too.

my worst by position

PG- Rajon Rondo- horrible jump shooter. its amazing how good he is at everything elsethough.

SG-Tyreke Evans- he cant shoot but he sure can drive.

SF- Ron Artest- thats right i said it. Ron Ron sucks. hes &$#%#&@! my lakers season away.

PF- Regggie Evans- dont get me started on this creep.

C- Ben Wallace- its a crime for him to do anything other than rebound or block a shot

Come on people...Some of

Come on people...Some of those players aren't some of the worst shooters...

I'd go Rondo, Clark, Carter from Denver?, Balkman, Graham, Henderson

Rondo surprisingly isn't that

Rondo surprisingly isn't that bad of a jump shooter when looking at statistics. This year he's one of the best point guards at shooting from 16-23ft go figure

andxxx. rondo is rarely

andxxx. rondo is rarely guarded outside of 16 ft. in the games i saw, most of rondo's jumper is not contested at all. he is usually wide open. so 44% might seem good, but basically this is rondo's shooting percentage when he is wide open or not guarded. i believe i shoot better than that in practice when im not being guarded by anyone from 16-23

Kind of funny Rondo?

Is no where near the worst jump shooter. He is not a 3 point shooter,but is a solid jump shooter who tends to pass most of the time. The Spurs lost that game by giving Rondo the J too much in the 4th quarter. He is not the worst just not a 3 point shooter. He is bad from the line,but shoots over 50 percent from the floor and they are not all lay ups. They are floaters and 14 ft and in J's

to the guy above....hitting

to the guy above....hitting wide open shots in a real game is much different than shooting wide open shots in practice.

.

Jared Dudley.

The guy can make 7 treys, regularly 3(if he has the PT), or shoot 38-45% from the 3pts line in his career, but he regularly airball, or barely touch the rim on 14 to 17 fts JS.
