Darnell Mayberry wrote about the increase in Kevin Durant’s 3-point shooting, noting that KD has already attempted seven more 3s this season than all of last year. And there are still 10 games left.
Reader Dave looked into it a little deeper and sent in this note and chart:
“The chart shows a methodical decrease in 3-point shots over his first season when he was shooting 3’s in the sub-30% range. Then, as he worked to increase his percentage, you can clearly see a slow rise in his 3-point attempts (as a % of his overall shots from the field). He has plateaued at around 36% from three for his career…it will be interesting to see if his 3-point shots as a percentage of his field goal attempts continue to increase or not.”
