This is a LeBron-centric graphic and kudos to him for being, you know, the best player on the planet. But MJ, 24-29. Everyone else on this list put up 14 shots max. But 24 for 29!

This is a LeBron-centric graphic and kudos to him for being, you know, the best player on the planet. But MJ, 24-29. Everyone else on this list put up 14 shots max. But 24 for 29!

I want my best player who has the best chance of getting a foul call and with the most experience in these situations taking that shot. When you are that player, as guys like Jordan understood, it’s not only so much getting the attention but taking the pressure off others and putting it where it should be. With excess defensive pressure, sure, give it up. But without that it’s your shot and your responsibility, and Rose understands that.
— Longtime Chicago Bulls beat writer Sam Smith uses the Derrick Rose game winner from last night to talk about “hero shots.” The accepted philosophy that your best player should always take the last shot has been called into question by the new math. Smith who fits the part of a jockey agent on HBO’s Luck has a less stats-centric take on the matter.

As the rest of the NBAOffseason staff can attest, I’m usually not great at thinking up new features for the site. For example my short-lived slow motion video segment “Illegal Defense Free-Throw of the Day.”
But this one- this ones got legs. I’m sure of it. It’s called: tick, tick, tock …STATS! 
It goes like this:
tick, tick, tock …TOP 5 NBA LEADERS IN 3-POINT FIELD GOAL PERCENTAGE ON MARCH 22, 1995! 
STATS! *jazz hands*
